ARNO DE CEA & THE CLOCKWORK WIZARDS' new album.

" Retrofuturisme volume II " is the fifth and new album by Arno De Cea & the Clockwork Wizards.
It is now available on bandcamp and on vinyl in Europe released by A Tant Rêver Du Roi / Les Productions Del L'Impossible / Calico Records and very soon in the U.S.A by Otitis Media Records.

Formed in 2008 on the French “Silver Coast" by three musicians involved in the Surf, Noise and Garage Rock scenes (The Irradiates, Stef & Arno, The Taikonauts, Antena Tres, Shunatao…), Arno De Cea & The Clockwork Wizards try to set Surf Music in the modern age by adding Punk Hard Core intensity and Noise Rock inventiveness.

To set the things clearer, it's like having Dick Dale swapping his guitar for a flamethrower while being backed by a robust, frenetic and tortuous rhythm section.

Throughout the years, those "Brutal Surf Music" purveyors used to tour around the European continent from Lisbon to Berlin, Alkmaar to Beograd, without forgetting Livorno to eat an ice cream by the Mediterranean sea.

2021 sees the band releasing its fifth album, "Retrofuturisme volume II " (EU: ATRDR/Calico Records/Les Productions de l’Impossible – USA: Ottis Media Records) to complete a rich discography also loaded with some split records and several compilations appearances.

The trio here reveals its interest for some musical freaks like Sun Ra or Chrome contributing to set the band a little more apart from "traditional” Surf Music, and showing its ability to have an unusual rhythmic and melodic approach to the genre.

All that was once resumed by a member of the audience assisting at one of their shows : “Well, it is the most well organised sonic bloody mess I have ever experienced in my life!” Fredrik Thordendal.
