About Band

Inspired by dark facts and highlights, mostly real, historic and social events, the music of Camp Z aims at reflecting the mood and tones of the present time, through a combination of punk, post punk, industrial and rock atmospheres. Among major references of the project’s music are Crisis, Killing Joke, Kraftwerk, Joy Division, Devo, Suicide, Ministry, PIL or Wire…

Numerous meetings within the underground scene, along with musical roots firmly held in many different subcultures, have made this adventure possible and have shaped the sound of Camp Z. This project is also the logical follow-up of my first solo experience: Zorch Factor. Different names and sound but same philosophy: a personal open-minded way of investigation in music, with sound at its very center, but also including a consistent work regarding the visual identity and the texts.

The first self-product album was released in May 2006, supported by Fake Record, an independent label founded by Joy Disaster’s Nicolas Rohr and friends. This friendly support around the label and the project (including Nico from Joy Disaster, Cyril from Dorcel and JP that was part of the Zorch Factor adventure) gave me the opportunity to build a live show and to know my first live experience with the Camp in 2006, in Paris at Le Klub.

In late 2006 the project also appeared on several samplers such as "The Sexy Zombies Part 1", a French sampler, or "Awake in the Greylight 3", the sampler proposed by the German fanzine Transmission.
2007 saw the release of a new official release on famous French label Manic Depression, the Violent Memories album, and new gigs followed.

In 2008 Camp Z joins the Zorch Factory Records net label effort and a new record is released there: Our World To Come EP, available for free (as digital files) on the label’s website.

A new single record is finally released in April 2009 and illustrates the current work of the band.
