IDOLIZE is french Noise Rock / Metal power trio SOFY MAJOR’s second album.
Fall 2012, the band flys overseas to record IDOLIZE in Brooklyn @ Translator Audio studio with producer Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Keelhaul, Converge…). On October 29th, hurricane Sandy destroys the studio in its entirety, annihilating all the recording gear as well as the band’s one. The loss is 100%.
After hanging around in NY for a few days like 3 french hobos in America, thanks to the support of the Brooklyn indie music scene, the recording finally takes place with the precious help of Dave Curran (Unsane, Pigs) and their producer’s perseverance.
After 3 weeks of recording, the band embarks on their first US tour. A trip mixing ultimate mysticism, stupidity, bad karma and shitty disaster B movies without any special effect.
IDOLIZE represents two years of work, including 150 gigs on two continents and around 20 countries.

Stop it, you're always complaining.
If you started to look at us you'd figure
you're not the only one to be mindfucked.
I'll freaking wake you up.
He says his life always sucks ass.
I let him know it's not life but him.
She says she's always snowed under tons of stuff.
I tell her she's freaking me out.
Stop looking at you.
How annoying you are.
Stop whining all the time.
You drive me mad.
Track Name: Power Of Their Voice (Portobello Bones Cover) (EURO version only)
The 60's are a dark stain on American history.
They live to destroy whatever good came out of the 60's.
A period when the American people actually were informed and aware, and realized that they had a voice!
They demanded that the war ends.
Power of their voice.
They were marching for the children.
They were marching for the poor.
They were marching for dignity.
And now they're marching for their self-interest.
