​PALAIS IDEAL's high-energy songs are constructed from fragments of post-punk, new wave and goth. They use vintage synths, guitars and equipment to create an authentic early 80s sound, inspired by works by The Cure, New Order, The Sound and The Sisters of Mercy. As musicians and producers, both members have worked on projects for independent and major labels and toured extensively. They have collaborated in their previous bands with members of Wire, Bauhaus, Tuxedomoon, Christian Death, The Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Clan of Xymox and Swans.​ PALAIS IDEAL - Richard van Kruysdijk (bass, baritone guitar, backing vocals, synths, programming) and John Edwards (vocals, guitars, synths, programming) - appeared out of nowhere in December 2016 with the video to their first ever track “Crossfade / Dissolve”. This was soon followed by a four track limited edition 10” white vinyl EP on Dark Vinyl Records: "The Future Has Been Cancelled". They gained immediate attention from worldwide radio shows and signed to booking agencies in The Netherlands (GoMuSic), the UK (8ball) and Germany (FFM). In February 2018, they released their debut album "No Signal".
 
PALAIS IDEAL's oppeppende muziek kan omschreven worden als een mix van post-punk, new wave en goth. Ze gebruiken vintage synths en gitaren om de authentieke sound van de 80s terug te brengen, geïnspireerd door The Cure, New Order, The Sound en the Sisters of Mercy. Zowel Richard van Kruysdijk (bass, baritone guitar, backing vocals, synths, programming) als John Edwards (vocals, guitars, synths, programming) hebben gewerkt aan projecten voor onafhankelijke en grote labels en hebben veel getourd. Ze hebben samengewerkt, in hun vorige bands, met Wire, Bauhaus, Tuxedomoon, Christian Death, The Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Clan of Xymox en Swans. PALAIS IDEAL begon in december 2016 met de video van hun allereerste liedje "Crossfade / Dissolve". Niet lang daarna kwam er een four track limited edition 10" witte vinyl EP bij Dark Vinyl Records, nl. "The Future Has Been Cancelled". Meteen kregen ze internationale aandacht van radio shows en tekenden ze bij verschillende booking agencies (GoMusic, 8ball en FFM). In Februari 2018, brachten ze hun debut album "No Signal" uit.
