Re-TROS
Re-TROS
Re-TROS (Rebuilding the Rights of Statues) began in the underground music scene of Nanjing, China in 2004. Lead singer/guitar/keys Hua Dong had just returned from studying abroad in Germany and was drumming for seminal Chinese post-punk band P.K.14 when he formed the band with bassist Liu Min, now his wife. Soon, the couple moved to Beijing, enrolled a local drummer, and began playing out in Beijing clubs.

The band quickly caught the attention of Beijing’s Modern Sky Records and were signed to the label in 2005. Shortly thereafter, they recorded their first EP 'Cut Off!' in Modern Sky’s then basement studio, with keyboard contributions by a visiting Brian Eno. The record received critical praise in China, and soon the band was playing sold-out shows to a growing legion of die-hard fans.

The past dozen years since the release of 'Cut Off!' (credited by many in the Chinese music scene as one of the more pivotal records to come out of mid-00’s Beijing) have seen the band release their full length LP 'Watch Out! Climate Has Changed, Fat Mum Rises' to critical acclaim; tour the world, playing major Chinese and international festivals and supporting bands including Gang Of Four, PiL, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Paul Weller, Cut Copy, and more; and continue to garner accolades from Chinese and foreign press - including The New York Times, NPR, ABC News, Vice, The Village Voice, and many more.
