Palais Ideal -
Info / biography:
New wave & Post-Punk music for emotional engagement, intellectual stimulation, energetic dancing and nostalgic enjoyment! ​Palais Ideal's high-energy songs are constructed from fragments of Post-Punk and New Wave.

The band from The Netherlands uses vintage synths, guitars and equipment to create an authentic early 80s sound, inspired by works by The Cure, New Order, The Sound and the Sisters of Mercy. As musicians and producers, both members have worked on projects for independent and major labels and toured extensively. They have collaborated in their previous bands with members of Wire, Bauhaus, Tuxedomoon, Christian Death, The Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Clan Of Xymox and Swans.​

Palais Ideal is Richard van Kruysdijk (bass, baritone guitar, backing vocals, synths, programming) and John Edwards (vocals, guitars, synths, programming). In April 2018, they released the single «The Programme» followed by the full album «Pressure Points» in May 2019.
