Bandinfo: Solar Fake
10 years ago, SOLAR FAKE‘s debut album “Broken Grid” was born. The project by Sven Friedrich, back then known for his bands Zeraphine and Dreadful Shadows, immediately attracted many fans and soon it became clear that this would be Sven’s musical future.
It’s hard to believe, but after 10 years – in total 5 studio albums and one live acoustic album – the sound of this electro/industrial/synthpop project by Sven Friedrich is still fresh, vigorous and full of energy. Not grown-up, not bland, not adapted. As if SOLAR FAKE were reborn with every new album.
With their latest album, the 5th studio album "YOU WIN. WHO CARES?", SOLAR FAKE have reached the top 20 of the German album charts and even No. 1 of the DAC (German alternative charts).
Driving electro beats, trance-like EBM sounds and the incredible voice of Sven Friedrich …
There were 3 headliner tours, several support tours (including tours with VNV Nation, Project Pitchfork, Covenant, Peter Heppner), numerous festival gigs, concerts all around the world, and not least a US tour together with Aesthetic Perfection … For years now, this band‘s live shows ensure unforgettable concert experiences for their audiences!
Since December 2017, Sven and his keyboardist André Feller have been supported by the extremely talented drummer Jeans. Even more power and energy onstage!
In early 2019 SOLAR FAKE will go on tour again.
Their set lists will not only include many new songs but also tracks from their first 3 albums, which will be re-released under the title "ONE 2 THREE" in December 2018.
