Biography

The French pop rock band Dionysis were formed in 1993 in Valence, Drôme whilst the various members were still college students. The band is the brainchild of the musician and author Mathias Malzieu who is the main songwriter and frontman of the six-piece ensemble. Dionysis are known for their musical exploration of surreal concepts and have cited the American director Tim Burton and the English novelist Roald Dahl as influences in their material which also draws inspiration from comic books.

After releasing two self-funded, self-produced albums the band secured a deal with the French record label Trema with whom they released three albums until the label was absorbed into the Universal Music empire in 2004. Their debut album with Trema was 'Haïku' which was released in 1999 and it was this album which established the band to a wider audience mainly due to the success of the lead single 'Coccinelle'.

The band occupy a unique niche within French music culture and since their early days have been a regular feature on the French festival circuit. Their most recent album was 'Vampire en Pyjama' released in 2016.
