“A Tale of Two Devils” is the second record, and German debut, by Amsterdam based three piece VOICST. It was recorded in New York City by Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) and co-produced by (techno) producer About. While recording they met Gogol Bordello’s sax player, Beyoncé’s trumpet player and Simon & Garfunkel’s piano player and threw them in the mix. The result is somewhere between Queens Of The Stone Age and Beyoncé. Pop with a rumble, rock with a twist…
Even though VOICST is a new name in Germany they have built quite a track record the past years. Their music has been featured in a Heineken campaign, FIFA World Cup Football game, Google Earth and Popular US TV-series One Tree Hill.
With their explosive live show the band have built themselves a strong live reputation.
They supported actress Juliette Lewis, The Bravery, Patrick Watson and Danko Jones on their European tours. They also played renowned festivals as the Vans Warped Tour (US), Oxygen (Ireland), Great Escape (United Kingdom), Sziget (Hungary) and Pinkpop (The Netherlands). Their Pinkpop performance was voted one of the top 3 performances at Pinkpop 2008.
All this hard work paid off. “A Tale of Two Devils” sprang to # 1 on the Dutch Alternative chart, spawned 4 singles and helped the band grow into one of the most influential groups on the Dutch touring and festival scene.
