FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW OPERA HERO
ANNOUNCES ‘Eat Work Sleep’ Single
RELEASE DATE: 26th February 2016
London based trio NEW OPERA HERO are set to release their debut single ‘Eat Work Sleep’, out on the 26th February 2016. ‘Eat Work Sleep’ is a powerful orchestral piece with clashes of experimental electronica and industrial, a sound reminiscent of Venetian Snares, Aphex Twin, Son Lux and Steve Reich. The instrumental version of ‘Eat Work Sleep’ was made specially for the video and is the foundation of the band's sound which transforms when the singer and the drummer join on stage.
NEW OPERA HERO’s extraordinary live performance is led by a projected baby that is controlled live on stage. The band comprised of Steff Ungerer (Vocal, guitar, keys, AV, producer), Agon (Vocal, keys) and Raoul Terzi (Vocal and drums) take the audience on a musical rollercoaster ride that veers between alternative anthems and upbeat electronica. "We combine the live energy of a guitar band with the big beats of electronic music and the baby makes sure everyone keeps up when we switch,” says Steff Ungerer co-founder of the band.
Steff composed, directed, designed and performed NEW OPERA HERO's first sold out show at the Royal Opera in Liege, Belgium in 2009 together with co-founder Mike Wilson. The 3D holographic electro/rock set that followed featured a number of talented singers and won them two MAMA Awards and gigs on major performance stages like The Lowry, Manchester and Kinetica Art Fair, London. However it wasn't until their set on the main stage of Germany’s Fusion Festival in 2013, that NEW OPERA HERO became a bona-fide band.
Ungerer often creates NEW OPERA HERO's music as part of a multimedia collage in which every element influences and changes every other. “Musical themes, stories, characters and images are shuffled around until they make sense as a whole” says Ungerer. In the video for ‘Eat Work Sleep’ that he created with long term visual collaborators Michael Wilson and Philip Gordon the musical journey that swerves between electronic beats, classical elements and their signature explosive choruses is apparent.
