The Christine Plays Viola is a band Abruzzo dedicated to a darkwave / post punk articulated and nuanced.
After appearing on several compilations and after scoring three self-produced EP, in 2011 the band reached an agreement with the German label Af Music for the release of their first full length Innocent Awareness. In May 2014, the German label Cold Insanity Music, was released the second full length of Christine Plays Viola entitled “Vacua”, an ambitious concept album inspired by the series of "Black Paintings" by the great Spanish artist Francisco Goya. For the song Slaughter Of The Black Sun, a new video clip is shot by director Mauro John Capece. In March 2015 the band released a 7” Vinyl EP named “The Stars Can’t Frighten” for the French label Manic Depression and a new European Tour is started in Autumn. The band has performed at Semana Gotica 2015 in Madrid and at La Nef Fantasmagothic 2015 in Angouleme and in more other countries like : Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal, Austria and Germany.
Worthy of note is the participation at the prestigious Wave Gotik Treffen in May 2016 in Leipzig where the band plays in front of a huge crowd!
In June 2016, the band announced the third studio album named “Spooky Obsessions” that will be out on 30th September, produced from Manic Depression Rec.
