Re-TROS are from Beijing, China. In their own country they are a stadium band and recognised as a hugely important and seminal band.
They are signed to the legendary Modern Sky label and lifetime friends with it’s founder LiHui Shen.
Key members of Re-TROS are partners Hua Dong and Liu Min. They recorded their debut EP (which includes keyboard contributions from Brian Eno on several tracks) for Modern Sky Records in 2005.
The band has since toured the world playing festivals in Europe and the USA, supporting bands including Gang of Four and PiL. Dong credits Bauhaus, Joy Division, Television, and Pere Ubu among his greatest influences.
‘Before The Applause’, the band’s 3rd album to be released this year, was produced by Hector Castillo (David Bowie, Lou Reed, Bjork) in Beijing.
