Hoax Hoax 'Shot Revolver' (Post-Rock / Noise)


Favoring instrumental gesture over the fake sound of the very word ‘love’, HoaxHoax
is a trio of musicians whose texture of sound conjures up unstable and swaying
landscapes. The long journey you take through their acoustic panoramas, and the
wide spectrum of emotions it raises, thus engender a feeling of obstinate strength,
of determination to fill vacant space, to do and undo the void.

HoaxHoax was created in 2011 by Virgile Abela,
David Merlo and Damien Ravnich. During the
first two years, the three musicians chose
to work behind closed doors, freely developing
their repertoire.



Then, in 2013, came time for concerts. The first EP
was released, after a live session recorded at the
Espace Julien in Marseille, and a series of about
twenty concerts was given throughout France
and Belgium. This tour was a great opportunity
for HoaxHoax to share the set with bands such
as Enablers (US), Lunatic Toys (FR), Uzeda (IT),
Lo monade Stanca (IT), The last Volt (BE), and
therefore to develop a strong network. Back from
their tour, they considered the project of a first
record with Olivier R in Onde Source studios
based in Marseille. Starting from there, the trio
followed a long and methodical process regarding
musical creation, as well as structuring of their
project. Meanwhile, the band also set up a scenic
project called Shot Revolver, and which also gave
its name to the album. The fabulous graphic
constellation exclusively imagined by Nicolas
Gerber for this project is visually developed on
the 2015 album cover, and the DIY craftwork on
the vinyl, using silkscreen and stamps, makes
each record absolutely unique.

Within two years, HoaxHoax managed to create the
conditions for the release of their first album, on 4
different media, and with 4 companies, in France
and abroad (US, Europe and Japan).
