The acclaimed Belgian singer/multi-instrumentalist Tom Barman and violinist/keyboardist Klaas Janzoons return with the first new dEUS album Pocket Revolution, after a 6-year hiatus (9 in the US since the last release was not readily available in America). Drummer Stephane Misseghers (ex of Soulwax) joined dEUS as they began work on the new album. The line up was finally crystallized in Autumn 2004 when Alan Gevaert (ex of Chris Withley & Arno) joined on bass and, Craig Ward, having moved on to pastures new, was replaced in dEUS by friend and musical cohort, the legendarily and effortlessly cool Mr Mauro Pawlowski (formerly the lead singer with the much missed Evil Superstars and also Mitsoobishi Jacson amongst many other fine incarnations).
With the exception of the release of their singles collection in Europe, No More Loud Music, which underlined their position as one of the most creative bands of the last decade and desperately compounded the heartfelt desire for their return, dEUS became a collective of individuals pursuing fresh vistas and ideas - a six year long busman's holiday if you will. dEUS may have been a little tardy of late, but no one can doubt that this fourth album will further the musical canon of a band in perpetual motion - in measure enchanting, confounding, heartbreaking and dazzling but never ever disappointing.
