NEW BREED - Joins The Deadfall Management Roster

Norwegian gothic rockers New Breed, a band featuring former members of bands such as Elusive and The River Knows, has signed a management deal with Deadfall Artist/Band Management. New Breed first saw the light of day in early 1998, when Kristian Gundersen(vocals and guitar) and Hans Henrik Varland (synth and programming) joined forces to establish what was to become one of the greats among the goth’n’roll acts. Two EP’s were released this year, the second one entitled Shadows was produced by Tommy Olsson (Elusive, Theatre Of Tragedy,...). A year of gigs, mayhem and minor scandals followed, and in 2000 they picked up a spot at Sex.Goth.Electronics, a collection of fine Norwegian underground music. This year also saw the arrival of Bjarte Langeland into the band, who started off as a bass player, but later picked up the guitar. A couple of years of song writing, rehearsals, the occasional gig, fights and the leaving of Hans Henrik followed, and in 2003 Pleasure And Pain (re-released by Gothic Music on 15th October 2014 with some bonus tracks) was released, an album which features the backing vocals of Harald Hovtun (Trains, Reflection). While hugely acclaimed by the critics, the album didn’t do as well as one should hope for, so after a few more years of touring, busts and controversy, the band decides to slow down a bit, and spend some time and energy elsewhere. Kristian joined Elusive, and Bjarte spent some time with garage rockers Midtskillewillie before joining The River Knows. Now, the old New Breed inspiration is back, new line up-plans are being made and the band is ready to take on the world harder than ever in the future. Todays line-up features: Kristian Gundersen, Bjarte Langeland and Erik Stangeland Olsen. Link
