Biography

More than 20 years on the road

Needle And The Pain Reaction was born in December 1999 in Ghent, Belgium, right before going into this new century. Today they still sound like a fresh young energetic rock band and have loads of new stuff they want to get out and share with the fans.

During these two decades, Needle toured in Canada (2006 and 2007), UK, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Malta and Ibiza.

Their second album Pheromone in 2008 was made with David Vella (Rammstein, Phillip Boa, Siouxsie and the Banshees, see moreā€¦) in his Temple Studios in Malta. Erik Van Biezen (Gorki) produced Stains in 2010. Later they went full DIY.

In 2016, Needle joined the renowned theatre company Studio Orka to perform Chasse Patate, as a stranded rock band playing live music on stage, with over 100 performances in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany between 2016 and 2022.
