Please Lose Battle is a multiform band : a bass, drums, two nintendo NES for melodies and live video projected are the secret recipe of the band.
The project is born in Clermont-Ferrand, France in 2013, created by Matt Blatte during long days behind the screen of his computer making music on a software called famitracker. After releasing a few tracks on the web, the solo project is crafted into a full live band.
After two EPs of pure chiptune songs released on the UK netlabel Pterodactyl Squad, Please Lose Battle is currently working on a new EP with chiptune and live instruments, stay tuned !
"It could be summed up as Dillinger Escape Plan meeting a gameboy. Without Mike Patton as a guest."
Kurt Cobain
Please Lose Battle is :
Matt Blatte : composer / bass, keyboard and machines live.
Jeremy Hegay : Drums and sampling live.
Moritz Merlot : visuals and realtime video live.
Monitor : More than a mascot, Monitor is the band's voice live.
