This event is 21 and over
Let's start from the beginning. Well, almost at least. We are a band. We hail from the more isolated parts of northern Sweden. We played in bands before and we've played together much longer than this new moniker. We are 5 friends that dabble in post-punk/dystopic pop or some brand of alternative rock music. We did a couple of records in our native tounge under the name of Invasionen but when we decided to take this globally we felt that a change in language and a new name would be in place. Welcome to our world, we really hope that you do enjoy it as much as we do.
The people in the band are the following:
Dennis Lyxzen - Vocals. (Refused, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Lost Patrol Band, AC4, The Bloody Beetroots Church of Noise and more).

Warsaw is comprised of former and current members of: ILYA, KATA, Goodbye Blue Monday, The Dropscience, Skydiver and more...
Warsaw is the latest of a handful of new bands that has sparked from the disbanding of San Diego’s ILYA in 2015. Warsaw is a four piece comprised of Demetrius Antuña and John Mattos (both formerly of ILYA) along with Rebecca Antuña and Lance LaFave of KATA. Warsaw has taken a few elements from both of these bands, but have wholly defined and refined a sound all of their own. With a much more straightforward approach to song structures yet maintaining a unique dark, sexy and sinister sound with an almost cinematic mood.
With their first release, a self-titled Ep comprised of 6 tracks, Warsaw covers the gamut of dark moods. Starting it off with the smooth, smoke-filled room vibe of Shadows, to the upbeat and dancy synth-laden Machines, to the uber-gothic organ driven Haven. Then you start to hear hints of their other bands KATA and ILYA in the doom pop, Marrow, and the dreamy soundscape, Stranger. The closing track is a reprise of Haven, taking a more emotive approach, stripping it down to a Fender Rhodes allowing Rebecca’s voice to take the forefront.
Currently Warsaw is putting the finishing touches on their debut LP and have just released the first single entitled, Hollow, with any accompanying music video.
