Le Pain des Fous was formed at the end of 2008, in the city of Saint Louis, Reunion Island. It is above all, a band versed in live performances. Their musical style, without boundaries, is coherent, varied and hard hitting and it appeals to a multigenerational audience that is delighted and charmed by their tunes. After their first self titled album, released in November 2011 ( le pain des fous ), the band became known by the Reunionese public. They performed a lot of concerts as top of the bill but also opened for many well known groups such as Fishbone, Washington Dead Cats, Kaophonic Tribu, Chinese man, Pigalle, Lofofora...
In June and July 2012, the group made it s debut tour through France with 12 dates that helped the 8 musicians conquer a new audience, a successful bet!
In 2013 Le Pain des Fous, was nominated in the Voices of Indian Ocean, as " best Artist" in the Pop, rock, electro, reggae category.
They continue working on the second album, while still performing on the beautiful stages of Reunion Island (Leu Tempo Festival, Sakifo Festival, les Florilèges...)
In July and August 2014, the band commenced an epic tour of 16 consecutive dates during their second tour of France followed by some performances in the " Intense island" .
They are still working on their second album ( released planned in 2015 ) . Le pain des Fous is already organising many other tours, to carry on with their musical style and their new tracks to the public. The goal remains to spread Le Pain des Fous' sound further.
