Neoclassical post-rockers We Stood Like Kings saw the light of day in 2011.
Almost a decade and 250 shows all over Europe later, this 4-piece piano-based band hailing from Brussels has become a reference act in live soundtracks to silent cinema, breathing new life into well-chosen masterworks of the seventh art.

Three movie concerts (BERLIN 1927, USSR 1926 and USA 1982) have shaped We Stood Like Kings’ story so far. Together, these form a vibrant trilogy portraying two empires already lost – pre-World War II Germany, the Soviet Union – and a
third one – today's consumerist society – that seems to be running headlong towards its own destruction.

New perspectives unfold as universes meet: in 2020, We Stood Like Kings launches a new concept entitled CLASSICAL RE:WORKS, revisiting works from the whole classical music era. What would Bach and Beethoven sound like if they lived
today and chose post-rock as their creative outlet?

You get the picture: We Stood Like Kings isn’t a band like any other. Every release is another opportunity to design new ways of blending their musical universe, now refined and textural, then epic and intense, with other art forms.
