X-Wife and their "Side Effects". (PT)

Another long awaited return is X-Wife's second record. This year shall see the release of "Side Effects", on Norte Sul records.
Defining themselves as "post punk electronic rock power trio", the band of João Vieria, on vocals and guitar, Fernando Sousa, on bass, and Rui Maia, on synths and drum machine, were responsible for one of 2004's best records in Portugal, "Feeding the machine".

Having released the 3 track EP "Rockin in Rio", the eager for their debut was huge. The record came out and didn't leave anyone disapointed. Post punk rock, vocals pushed close to the limit, synthesizer, electro sounds, an 80's look, guitars bursting with energy and great life performances, all led to X-Wife being the band to look for.

After releasing a split single with Large Number and Hiem, at White Label Records, their new record is set to be released already this month.

'Ping-Pong' will be the first single, from a record influenced by the 70's disco sound.
After releasing the record, they'll embark on a national and international tour.

For those wanting to know more about X-Wife, please check their MySpace site. There you can listen to 4 tracks out of "Feeding the machine".

The track "Eno" can be downloaded here, and the video for "Rockin in Rio" seen in here.
Some more track samples available on their site, X-Wife Rocks, on the Sounds section.

You can purchase the album at Insound.
