With their eclectic live shows, the Danish artists Mads Damsgaard Kristansen and Esben Valløe have already proved not to disappoint. Intensively touring through Asia and Europe and building up an evangelical fan base, the Electro punks made one thing clear: rock'n roll is not dead -Reptile Youth - here comes the saviors. Pretty obvious, that it's now time for the release of their first album, isn't it?!
Produced in London with star producers Dave M. Allen (The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Human League) and Mary Ralph (Filthy Dukes, Hot Chip) this is a collection of tracks to reset the musical dial - FIRE!
