Raining Pleasure

Profile:
Alternative Rock/Indie band formed in 1990 in Patra, Greece.
They started playing as "Rest In Peace" and in 1992 they changed their name to "Raining Pleasure".
They recorded their first demo in 1994 (including 16 songs) and released their first album "Memory Comes Back" in 1996. Their second album, "Nostalgia", was released in late 1998. In Spring 2001, Raining Pleasure were linked with EMI. The band recorded and released the EP "Capricorn".
In December 2001, "Flood" was released. The album spawned three massive airplay hits in Greece, the biggest of which "Fake" has become a pop and rock radio staple, after successfully being used in TV spots for Greece's leading telecommunications company. In 2002 "Rock N Roll" Magazine readers' poll, the group was voted as the "Best Greek Rock act of all time". Raining Pleasure have share festival stages with The Cure, The Pixies, The Dandy Warhols and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club among others and having sold out theatres all over the Greece.
In 2004, the album "Forwards & Backwards" is introduced by the double A-side single "World'/'Identical Twins". On "Identical Twins", esteemed vocalist Elly Paspala contributes a vocal track. Both songs became airplay hits. In March of the same year, the band's cover of ABBA's "Dancing Queen" featured in the successful Greek film "Hardcore". In September, the group scores another hit with the song "Love Me, Love Me, Love Me". Its video clip (directed by Marina Gioti) won the "Best animation video clip award" at the Animation Block Party Awards 2005 in New York.
In Winter 2004, the band embarks on its first tour in Germany and enters the studio to record a new version of the classic album by Manos Hadjidakis and the New York Rock N Roll Ensemble, "Reflections". Their latest album "Who's gonna tell Juliet?" was released in December 2007 by their new indie label "Celesta Records".
