Band page created in 2011.
There is more than one band with this name.
1) A Melodic Hardcore band from Suffolk, UK
2) A French Noise Rock band
3.) lo-fi noise project from saskatchewan, canada
1)Basement are five lads from Ipswich, Suffolk who play melodic hardcore with a touch of emo, like early Lifetime.
2) Basement was created at the end of 1995 inspired by various American bands such as Jesus Lizard, Unsane, Fugazi, Cop shoot cop or Distorted Pony.
The band's first EP entitled "Head on" was recorded by Fred Norguet (Burning Heads, Portobello Bones, Ez3kiel...) and was released by Weird records/Tripsichord in March 1996.
This dark spellbinding hardcore record came to tease the successful Amphetamine Reptile company.
After touring all over France, the band went back to the studio to record their second EP.
Just like "Head on", "Underneath" was produced by Fred Norguet but was released by Vicious Circle/Pias in March 1998.
This record proved that the band deserved its place in the French noise and Post hardcore music world.
The three members of Basement spent the following two years playing their songs on stage in France and Europe and were selected for the FAIR in 2000.
2007 marks the return of Basement after a quite long break.
There is now a fourth member in the band and they have just released a new record, "Everything gets distorted", made of 8 tense songs combining strength and melody.
This time the band has worked with the French producer Nicolas Dick (Kill the Thrill), Jean Michel Gimenez (Tantrum / cover and artwork), Interference (management) and After Before (booking).
With a ten year long existence and after two records and more than 250 shows, Basement is back and ready to prove it on stage all over Europe.
