A Post-Punk Spectacular

From Eindhoven we are glad to welcome New wave & post-punk music for emotional engagement, intellectual stimulation, energetic dancing and nostalgic enjoyment!

​PALAIS IDEAL's high-energy songs are constructed from fragments of post-punk and new wave. They use vintage synths, guitars and equipment to create an authentic early 80s sound, inspired by works by The Cure, New Order, The Sound and the Sisters of Mercy.
As musicians and producers, both members have worked on projects for independent and major labels and toured extensively. They have collaborated in their previous bands with members of Wire, Bauhaus, Tuxedomoon, Christian Death, The Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Clan of Xymox and Swans.​
PALAIS IDEAL - Richard van Kruysdijk (bass, baritone guitar, backing vocals, synths, programming) and John Edwards (vocals, guitars, synths, programming) - appeared out of nowhere in December 2016 with the video to their first ever track “Crossfade / Dissolve”. This was soon followed by a four track limited edition 10” white vinyl EP on Dark Vinyl Records: "The Future Has Been Cancelled". They gained immediate attention from worldwide radio shows and signed to booking agencies in The Netherlands (GoMuSic), the UK (8ball) and Germany (FFM). In February 2018, they released their debut album ‘No Signal’.

after their recent excellent headline show we are glad to be welcoming back this local York band performing dark alt-rock noises along with intimidating female vocals.


Formed in gloomy month of January 2016 and taking their name from a Film Noir title, The Seventh Victim infuse their love for drum machines, driving basslines and fuzzy guitar hooks sprinkled with a pinch 80's post-punk love.

They made their live debut as the opening band for Goth City Festival on 11th October 2018.

Tim: Vox
Mike: Guitar
