“Can’t stop listening to this … their album is absolutely huge.”

Epitome of Epic
DEF NEON fuse elements of rock, electro, synthpop and bass music to create a sound that has been described by critics as energetic, intense and unique.
The band's infectious and accessible sound coupled with their engaging live performances across the UK have proven popular with live event organisers, club promoters and fans alike, leading to a number of headline shows, festival appearances and high-profile support slots for The Orb, 65daysofstatic, Death in Vegas, Pop Will Eat Itself, The Birthday Massacre, The Algorithm and Sonic Boom Six.
After signing a recording deal with Manchester's AnalogueTrash label in early 2016, DEF NEON are set to unleash their staggering self titled debut album on the 25th of November 2016. Featuring 10 tracks and stuffed to bursting with their signature guitar leads, synth hooks and effortlessly memorable choruses, this is an album that is sure to impress new and existing fans of the band with its seamless blend of dirty electronics and guitar-driven rock. Think The Siouxsie Sioux meets Daft Punk, or Peaches meets Van Halen.

Without a doubt one of the strongest EBM/Electro/Synthpop releases of 2015! Every song a brilliant shimmering gem and qualified as a "favorite track". A refreshing range of styles, emotions, and songwriting genius. This is not ordinary by any means but rather extraordinary and shows exceptional promise from the Swedish masterminds on their sophomore release (as did their debut). Highly Recommended. This has quickly become a release I could not live without. 10/10! Johnny Brito
This is a great album that paints the exact picture it sets out to do whilst being uplifting and great to dance to! This is fun to listen to from start to finish
The bonus disc adds so much to the experience, every Remix offers a fresh take on the originals and the other material on top of that is nice too! Venombullet666
