Back in 2007 Justice’s crunching deconstruction of techno, pop, R&B, electro, funk, metal and pretty much anything else that took their fancy established the pair as one of France’s most vital musical exports. They are celebrated with 1 nomination for a Grammy Award, 1 Victoire de la musique - french award - and 3 MTV Awards.

Their second album, 2011’s Audio, Video, Disco, pushed the sonic boat out even further. A bombastic aural wallop whose classic ’70s rock flourishes owed as much to Queen and Yes as it did Frankie Knuckles or Prince, it saw them embark on rapturously-received world tour that took in headline slots at Coachella and Lollapalooza.

Released in 2016, their third album "Woman" took us on board and catapults us from the elastic R&B pop of 'Pleasure' to the rush of 'Alakazam!' without any transition whatsoever, all with a more 'live' approach to the record, heralding the next path taken by the duo.


After three studio albums: Cross (2007), Audio, Video, Disco (2011) and Woman (2016), Justice presents in 2018 Woman Worldwide, a new and original album in which their previous productions are mixed together, stretched and reinterpreted. Woman Worldwide is a studio album shaped by and for live performance. For Justice, the stage is the ultimate purpose of their music. It transforms into an event, a unique experience, what was frozen in LPs, giving the sound its full scope. For this album, the duo won the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Electro Album of the Year, and Woman Worldwide ranked 2nd on Billboard's Top 40 Dance Albums of the Decade.

And while they proved it with an extraordinary international tour and a spectacular live show at the Accor Hotel Arena in Paris, the duo didn't stop there.


In the manner of Pink Floyd's historic live show in Pompeii, the band used this raw material, the energy of a live show, to convey the experience of their lives through film. IRIS: A Space Opera by Justice was born. A film-event with a worldwide release but a single screening in nearly 300 cinemas across 50 countries. This singular work revisits Justice's musical productions through a meticulous set design, where lighting effects, machinery and camera movements combine perfectly to create a fascinating and original object.


Justice have announced their brand new album ‘Hyperdrama’ will be released on 26th April 2024 via Ed Banger Records / Because Music. The album will be available digitally to stream/download as well as physically via CD, double black vinyl, limited edition double crystal clear vinyl and limited edition double picture disc vinyl. Two singles have already been released, taken from the forthcoming album: ‘One Night/All Night starring Tame Impala’ and ‘Generator’.

Of the single ‘One Night/All Night starring Tame Impala’, the band say: “We wanted this track to sound as if a dark/techno iteration of Justice had found a sample of a disco iteration of Kevin Parker. Kevin has a sense of melody that’s fascinating in the sense that he manages to write melodies that feel both simple and natural, but very peculiar at the same time. This song oscillates between pure electronic music and pure disco but you never really get the two at the same time. This very idea of switching instantly from a genre to another within a song runs through the whole record, and is maybe showcased the clearest in ‘One Night/All Night’.

And of ‘Generator’, the band add: “To us, this one sounds like “Getaway” by the Salsoul Orchestra, but with gabber and classic 90s hardcore techno sounds. Disco/funk and  electronic music at large have always been core elements of the music we make as Justice. In ‘Hyperdrama’, we make them coexist, but not in a peaceful way. We like this idea of makingthem fight a bit for attention.” The official video for ‘One Night/All Night starring Tame Impala’ is available to watch now. The arresting visual, produced by Phantasm and directed by Anton Tammi also reveals the artwork for the highly anticipated Hyperdrama album. “I suggested to them that what if we dive in? What if their music video was a journey inside the cross?” states Tammi. “I dreamed of creating a piece like this. A strange and experimental object that looks like rave lighting inside human lungs and strobe light around a human heart.”

‘Hyperdrama’, the new album by Justice will be released 26th April via Ed Banger Records / Because Music.

New singles ‘One Night/All Night starring Tame Impala’ and ‘Generator’ are out now.
