“Chromeo has nothing on this guy.” – Under the Radar

 "With his latest track "Romance and Cigarettes," Delacroix needs no disguise to make you feel like you are driving through an 80s dance-pop nightmare." – VICE's Noisey

“…a punchy, electro-pop hybrid with grand ambitions (that's nerd for "arena-ready"), welding together the Temper Trap's soldiering tempos and Phoenix's inescapable pop sensibilities.”

“…a cosmic mid-tempo dance track that could have been popular aboard the original Battlestar Galactica.” – Red Bull Music

“…a grim, ominously chugging bit of dancefloor doom where synths crackle and flash for milliseconds and then vanish like… well, like spirits in the ether.” – Wondering Sound

French DJ/songwriter/producer Simon Delacroix aka The Toxic Avenger will release his highly anticipated Romance & Cigarettes LP June 10th via Ultra Records! Seamlessly blending heavy synth-pop influences & disco-inspired syncopation, the album balances classic rhythm & futurism in a way that few others are able to capture.
Romance & Cigarettes LP cut “Chase II” is a deliciously futuristic rollercoaster ride through outer space, featuring cosmic effects, lightsaber-like tones, and captivating rises & falls. The Paranormal Activity-inspired accompanying video, revealed with Wondering Sound, is a suspenseful mini horror flick. Check out the “Chase II” video HEREwhere it’s available to post & share! Italian duo Aucan also remixed the track, adding their unique, ominous touch to the original. The “Chase II” (Aucan Remix) premiered with Red Bull Music, and you can give it a spin HERE!

The Toxic Avenger lent a sonic hand to the Watch Dogs trailer, which features his song "Run Fast." The Watch Dogs trailer has garnered over a million views in just over a week and has become the fastest-selling game in the company’s (Ubisoft) history. Stay tuned as the album’s release date nears, and prepare for much more dance-punk coming soon from The Toxic Avenger!
