Description
n the beginning, Lonely Walk was a post-apocalyptic and personal digression created by Mickael Appollinaire, AKA Monsieur Crane, being also a dark preacher in the band Strasbourg. Based in Bordeaux, South-West of France, he smoked out the blogosphere by releasing several digital Eps between 2010 and 2013, all available on Bandcamp. The record label Satanic Royalty released V.I.H.S., Lonely Walk’s first LP in stores in 2013, which was well received by the critics. Then followed the NGHTMR EP, then a more personal album called BORE in 2014.
All these secluded compositions came on stage radically changed with the addition of a 5-piece live band, which counted Alice from JC Satàn on the bass guitar and Johan Gustafsson from Black Bug in its ranks. 
Lonely Walk is now composed of : 
− Mickaël Appollinaire (singer, songwriter), playing also in Strasbourg ; 
− Baptiste Averty (keyboards), leader from Mabrouk ; 
− Guillaume Cassagnol (bass guitar), playing in Magneto and Mabrouk ; 
− Yasade Lecointre (guitar), cofounder of the label Simple Music Experience ; 
− Théo Delaunay (drums), playing in panoptique, Conditionnel, and also a member of Simple Music Experience. 
The label BORN BAD RECORDS will release the album TEEN at the end of 2015, Lonely Walk’s first album recorded with the live band in the studio Mikrokosm in Lyon, France. What can we hear on this record ?  Eleven dark and addictive songs. A hypnotic post-punk slumming it with pop and making a few psychedelic stops, led by an obsessive singing with catchy slogans.Happy innocent children shout because school’s out (Burial Tomb), the epic violin of Tamara Goukassova shreds the toxic atmosphere (War, Black Dragonfish). To cut a long story short, Lonely Walk takes us right to Doomsday, but not the one we dread. The one we crave for, eyes wide open and dilated pupils, drinking a nice and cheap cocktail of liquid nitrogen. 
One can think of Clinic, Soft Moon or A-Frames, but you must look towards Australia to find cousins to Lonely Walk, with bands like Eddy Current Suppression Ring or Total Control. 
The album artwork representing a one-eyed skull hiding it shame behind hands was conceived by graphic designer Greg Vezon.
