French rock band EIFFEL were founded by Romain and Estelle Humeau in 1998. After the release of a first 1999 EP (L'Affaire), the band was spotted by producer Bertrand Burgalat, seeking a backing band for French writer Michel Houellebecq's 1999 music project.
Gaining a larger following and more exposure over the years, EIFFEL released two albums (2001's L'Abricotine and 2002's Le Quart d'Heure des Ahuris) before Romain Humeau took some time off to record a solo project. EIFFEL returned as a band with a new EP, Ma Part d'Ombre, in 2006 and a new album, Tandoori, in 2007. The full-length À Tout Moment arrived in 2009, followed by Foule Monstre in 2012 and now by Stupor Machine in 2019 !
