In a small city called Pesaro at the Italian Adriatic coast, one of post-punks best kept secrets resides. Post-punk three-piece Soviet Soviet were born in 2008 by Alessandro Costantini, Andrea Giometti and Alessandro Ferri, and they quickly gained a following after releasing a few singles and debut EP “Summer, Jesus” in 2011.
After two great post-punk albums, “Fate” (2013) and “Endless” (2016) with razor-sharp guitars, a lockstep bass groove, and jab-and-parry drumming mixed with coldwave and art punk, the band gained lots of reputation across the globe which led to a huge promotion opportunity at SXSW in Austin, Texas, but they just found themselves deported by US border control at arrival (actually locked up over the night) (read the full statement here) for reasongs unknown.
However, it hasn’t stopped the band from touring the globe and after releasing three-track EP “Ghost” at the end of August, they set off for a tour in South and Central Americas including dates in Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile. But hey guys, there’s a few dates missing – in Germany!
