Well Everybody! the weeks up until this new post have been so damn tough for the entire crew here at indie band finder! from stolen guitars to near homelessness, most of our crew have been going through quite alot and though a lead journalist and editor can do quite alot, there is only so much she can do. Therefore, these weeks we have all let you, the readers, down but never fear because today is a day of exumation and Indie Band Finder is back once again stronger than ever. All that has been promised shall be given as well as nearly fifteen new endeavors we have come across! As for today, it is my pleasure to show you this excellent band. Justice have been the band my ipod plays most of all for nearly five years and i can assure you that my love for them is just as strong as it was the day I stumbled upon their exquisite music video "DVNO" and was in awe. So without further ado, here is a bit about the band:
Their debut album † was released in June 2007 to critical acclaim. The album was later nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album and came in at number 15 on Pitchfork's Top 50 Albums of 2007 and number 18 on Blender's "25 Best Albums of 2007" list. It was nominated for the 2007 Shortlist Prize, losing out to The Reminder by Feist. Their remix of the MGMT song "Electric Feel" won the Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical in 2009.
In September 2009, it was announced that Justice would be moving to WMG/Atlantic's newly relaunched Elektra Records label. The band reportedly started working on their second album in mid-2010. The first single entitled "Civilization" was released on 28 March 2011. The band released their second album, Audio, Video, Disco, on 24 October 2011. Their newest release is due May 7th 2013, which will be a Live album titled Access All Arenas.
