Since their debut “Everything’s Perfect” was released in January on IMPOSE records, the Team has spent the past three months bringing the party to both basements and huge stages alike. Touring almost non-stop, it all culminated at this years SXSW where they played 13 shows in Austin with the likes of Crystal Castles, the Cool Kids, Matt & Kim, Man Man, Talib Kweli, Dan Deacon and Parts & Labor to name a few.

Now, Team Robespierre has been tapped to join the Teenagers on tour kicking off this week! Look out for more surprises, including a trip to the UK to celebrate the release of "88th Precinct" overseas, followed by a hometown performance this summer @ McCarren Pool w/ Liars! More info below!

More about Team Robespierre:

Powered by a dirty punk rock ethos, synth hooks and programmed dance beats, Team Robespierre has helped resurrect a Brooklyn punk scene that has been waiting to embrace the raw energy of our nation's basements and late night warehouse dance parties. With a sound that melds the future and the past, the Team brings back memories of 80s new wave and 90s hardcore, and after IMPOSE owner Derek Evers saw them play a show in the spring of 2007, he ended up so drenched in beer and human sweat that he had to sign these guys – making “Everything’s Perfect” the first official full-length for both the band and the label.

Formed in Brooklyn during the winter of 2005, the members of Team Robespierre were initially connected by their roots - having all grew up in similar punk rock scenes in New York, Denver, Minnesota, Texas, Poland and Jersey, playing in bands like Thulsa Doom, Morning Glory and Hipster Bloodbath. But as Rex, Tom, Ty, Mike and Jim got older their record collections expanded to include noise, indie, electro and new wave among other genres. All and none of these genres can be heard in their recordings or live shows. But what comes across most when seeing these guys is their raw energy and unwillingness to separate themselves from the crowd.
