Introduction : Esprit d’Air and Rêve de Machine


Opening part : Esprit d’Air

Rêve de Machine will be the first ALYS show happening in a concert hall. It will be on December, 17th in Le Trianon in Paris.  For this event, a band will join the show and will play the first part of it: discover Esprit d’Air !


Reformed in 2016, Esprit d’Air are a space metal band based in London. The band is comprised of Kai (guitar & vocals), Ellis (bass), and Daishi (drums).

“They’re producing tracks that excite us much more than any recent visual kei or J-rock from Japan.” – Tom Smith, JPU Records

The band have made a successful appearance at the main stage of HYPER JAPAN Festival at Olympia, London in July earlier this year. Their comeback single, Rebirth has been eagerly anticipated by fans of old and new, and will be released worldwide on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.

The band are not seeking a major record label, but instead follow a strong DIY ethos and produce everything themselves to be as self-sufficient as possible. Consequently, they record, mix and master their own releases in their own home recording studio and produce the artwork and music videos themselves.

We’re waiting you at Le Trianon to discover and support Esprit d’Air for Rêve de Machine !
