About AFFÄIRE

Unlike what the 1990’s music trends and industry dictatorship tried to establish, Rock n Roll doesn’t have to be self-pitiful, innocent and pale.

Years of stage and studio hard work within the Portuguese rock and metal scene - in bands like Attick Demons, Dawnrider, Divine Lust or Iberia - paved the way for AFFÄIRE, founded in late 2011 with the debut single “Born Too Late”, released in 7” vinyl format. The following couple of years were marked by live appearances – including shows as support act for Paul Di Anno (UK) and House Of Lords (USA) - and another single/first official video "Highway Affair".

The band’s debut full-length "At First Sight" - mastered at “The Groove Room” in San Rafael, California, a studio run by Davy Vain, who oversaw the whole analog mastering process - was released worldwide by US based Demon Doll Records in September 2015. Besides being a good excuse for touring North and South Portugal and also Spain in half a year, “At First Sight” also attained remarkable airplay and gathered rave reviews from specialized media worldwide.

Spring 2017: Raging Planet releases the “Neon Gods” EP, AFFÄIRE’s new effort
comprised of 4 of the band’s scorching new songs plus the first cover-version ever recorded by the band: that’s THE BEATLES’ “I Saw Her Standing There”.
