ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chapeaumelon is a French-Canadian band most notable for a cover of The Who's My Generation used in the 2004 film Eurotrip and its soundtrack.

History

After a few short months of the band's genesis, Chapeaumelon won the Coup de Cœur prize at the Festival International de la chanson de Granby. The following summer, the boys then offered their second performance at the Francofolies de Montréal earning them Coup de Cœur de l’Année.

The band was quickly taken under Jacques Dion and Michel Trudel's wings, helping them to produce their first record at the prestigious Studios Piccolo (Daniel Bélanger, Céline Dion, Diane Dufresne,Jean-Pierre Ferland, Simple Plan, Smashing Pumpkins,…) by the end of October 2002. It is to be noted that Celine Dion's drummer Dominique Messier produced a few songs as well. Backed by the Gillett entertainment company, they toured Ontario and Quebec.

Their songs climbed the charts quickly in both provinces but also in New-Brunswick. The hit "L'Acheteur" became their first video which won the 2002 prize for best french video on "French Kiss", the Much Music television program. David Lahaye directed both this and the following video, "Sofa". This record was extraordinarily well received and was filed under Le Devoir's 2003 top 10 best records.

Chapeaumelon was then honored to be dubbed one of Quebec's 10 people of the year by the "Les Incontournables" TV show. They had the opportunity to open for well known acts such as Marc Déry, Sylvain Cossette, Blue Rodeo, The Tea Party(...) as well as being heard in popular series such as Las Vegas, Scooby Doo and Ghost Whisperer.

Chapeaumelon were also invited to sing their hit "Victoire" at Celine Dion's 2003 record launch in Las Vegas.

It's in 2004 that two of their songs are included in the american movie Eurotrip. "Ma Generation", the classic The Who's cover, being chosen as the opening credits theme.

After three years out of the spotlight, Chapeaumelon returned with a new rhythm section : Tarik Akbik on bass and Fredéric Tessier on drums, winning Richmond's Festirock contest in march of 2008. They then opened for Jonas at Sherbrooke's Canada day celebrations. Their latest release "Bonjour Bonsoir" was launched at last year's Francofolies, opening for Les BB and after winning yet another music contest at the Beloeil festival, the band opened for Marie-Chantal Toupin and Offenbach in August.

Also, their new song "Mademoiselle Éphémère" was on MTV's The Hills (Season 3-Episode 19) who incidently broke audience records of 4.7 million viewers in the US alone.
