Press Kit

Experimental rock, venomous noise music, progressive baroque hardcore, putting a label on this unusual band is no easy task. A crossroads that brings together diametrically opposed worlds and bridges the gap between extremes, led by a female voice at a cross between incantation and lyricism, Helium Horse Fly offers a musical journey that oscillates between tense breathing spells and cathartic violence.

Line-up: Marie Billy [vocals/keyboards] - Stéphane Dupont [guitar/vocals/keyboards] - Dimitri Iannello [bass] - Gil Chevigné [drums]

Biography

Helium Horse Fly was born in March 2009 in Liège, Belgium, and is the fruit of singer Marie Billy, guitarist Stéphane Dupont, bass player Dimitri Iannello and drummer Tom Malmendier's encounter.

Back in spring 2010, the band gave its first concerts and recorded its first EP, A dispute to redefine clearly frontiers between devils and angels, an early digital release of which came out on April 19th, 2010, followed by a physical release on October 31st, 2010. This release was acclaimed by the press, and the track Lights won the PureDemo competition organized by the Belgian radio PureFM. Its successor, the EP Fishing for Ghosts, was released on December 14th, 2011 and met with the same reception.

In early 2012, Bastien Dupont took over from Tom Malmendier and became the band's new drummer. The group then started working on its first eponymous album due to be released on October 25th, 2013 on Dipole Experiment Records. The album was in turn critically acclaimed.

Helium Horse Fly has performed in Belgium and France (Brussels, Liège, Paris, Lille, Besançon, Perpignan...) and has done the opening act for bands such as Black Math Horseman, Uzeda, Overmars, Binaire, Aside From A Day, Generic, Lilly Wood & The Prick, ...

In spring 2014, the drummer Gil Chevigné joined the band and took over Bastien Dupont.
