The Voidz – Experimental Rock Band
The Voidz (fka Julian Casablancas+The Voidz) are an indie/dance punk band founded by The Strokes vocalist Julian Casablancas. Members Jeff Kite (keyboards) and Alex Carapetis (percussion) had previously worked with Casablancas as part of Sick Six, the backing band for this first solo LP, Phrazes for the Young. Kite and Carapetis had worked with Jake Bercovici (bass, synth) on "I Like the Night," a track Casablancas recorded as part of an ad campaign for French fashion line Azzaro. With the addition of guitarists Jeramy Gritter and Amir Yaghmai, the lineup was complete.
In 2014 and 2015, the band signed to Casablancas' record label, Cult, and began making performances at festivals like Coachella, SXSW, Primavera Sound, Governor's Ball, and Lollapalooza. The band's debut LP, Tyranny, was released in fall 2014. In December 2017, they shortened their name to The Voidz and signed to RCA, who would release their second LP, Virtue, in spring 2018. The Voidz are set to wrap their fall American tour and embark on the European leg of tour in fall 2018.Less
