Les Breastfeeders are back!

After a long break, Les Breastfeeders are back for the first time since 2011 with two new songs, released via Blow The Fuse Records. Honouring Quebec’s francophone garage-rock tradition, the Montreal rock ‘n’ roll landmark unveils one original song and one cover translated into French. 

On the single Ma mort d’avant ma mort, they move away from their usual abrasive, punk sound to focus on hypnotic guitars and magnetic vocal harmonies. With lyrics ranging from resentment to sadness, the song tells the story of a broken heart that slowly withers away. Tu n’es pas celle que tu croyais, tu es comme celles que tu détestes / Et dans ma vie devenue immonde, je m’éteins à chaque seconde, sings Luc Brien. 

Listen to Les Breastfeeders’ new songs, available on all digital platforms.

With Hey, petite fille, a cover of Sweet Young Thing by The Chocolate Watchband, Les Breastfeeders stay true to the original version without falling into the trap of pastiche. The frenetic rhythm, combined with the strong percussions, will inevitably have you stomping your feet. Careful not to damage your dancing shoes!

Although Les Breastfeeders have been discreet over the past few years they’ve still performed at key times, headlining or sharing the stage with rock ‘n’ roll legends like The Sonics and MC5.

Since the band started at the turn of the millenium, Les Breastfeeders have delivered three albums, all of them released on Blow The Fuse Records. Their latest one, Dans la gueule des jours, which followed Les matins de grands soirs (2006) and Déjeuner sur l’herbe (2004), earned them a trophy for Rock ‘n’ Roll Album of the Year at the GAMIQ Awards in 2011.

After a few lineup changes, Les Breastfeeders now consist of Luc Brien on guitar and vocals, Suzie McLelove also on guitar and vocals, Joe Gagné on bass, David Deïas (Mystic Motorcycles and Yardlets) on lead guitar, Maxime Hébert (The High Dials, Beat Cops and many more) on drums and of course, the unforgettable Johnny Maldoror on tambourine!

In the coming months, Les Breastfeeders will tear up Quebec’s highways to play several shows across the province. The band is also one of the headliners of Distorsion Psych Fest, taking place in Montreal from May 8th to 11th. Stay tuned for more dates to be announced soon and above all, be sure to catch them live; they’ll be blowing audiences away, six strings at a time!
