Baron Bane is a magical, intriguing, border crossing multimedia band who stretches the boundaries for what a regular band can do. The group consists of three musicians and two graphical designers, - and they all stand under the Baron's command. The Baron's servants' accompaniment during live gigs are beautiful movies shot on big screens. The group has, since its forming, done the following; art exhibitions with combined sound installation/live concert, overhead projector battles, incorporated dance acts in live gigs, club gigs and a lot of open air festival gigs.
Baron Bane released his self titled debut album on Stupid Dream Records on November 7. The album contains 10 strong tracks and has been described as an refreshing hybrid between electronica and pop/rock. One of the forthcoming singles, "Soften", is mixed by internationally acclaimed house producer Tony Senghore. Soften has in the fall of 2004 gotten rotation on London-based radio station XFM.
