More than a band or a gathering of artists, Blasted Mechanism is a group of thinkers joined together to develop a concept that breaks all stage barriers and enters into our daily lives. During this evolution process, music and lyrics were combined with visual arts and technological concepts, creating unmatched performances recognised by people and media worldwide. Blasted Mechanism have been on a world tour since 1996, and they have performed in some of the world’s greatest festivals like Glastonbury, Sziget Festival, Rock for People, Fusion Festival, Festival Sudoeste, Paredes de Coura, Alive or Vilar de Mouros.
“New Militia”, their latest album and concert film, derives from the death and rebirth process experienced by this band with a 25-year career. In 2018, Blasted Mechanism went through the renovation of the group following the exits of Luís Simões (Guitar) and Winga (Percussion), and the entering of Riic Wolf (Vocals). “New Militia” will now be presented on Festival F, Faro.
