“ “For hate is not conquered by hate: hate is conquered by love, this is an eternal law”” – First Hate
Rising from the snake pit into the international spotlight; the journey continues for First Hate. It all began with the self-titled debut EP ‘First Hate’ (Bad Actors Inc., September 2014), which featured hit singles “Girls In The Club” and “In My Dreams”, music that transcended genres transforming the Copenhagen underground scene. It was a steady climb for the two Copenhageners, who have spent time on the road with Trentemøller, Communions, Iceage and Lust For Youth.
“Pop music shapes generations. Like melodies come to me in dreams, I try to put dreams in our music. Dreams of a better world” - Joakim Nørgaard
Summer 2015 was spent in the studio producing their follow-up EP ‘The Mind Of A Gemini’ (Escho, March 2016). Sold out headline shows at Lille Vega, Copenhagen and The Waiting Room, London proved the band's popularity was now hitting a wider more mainstream audience with singles “White Heron” and “Trojan Horse” getting heavy rotation on national radio. The rest of the year was been spent on the road touring mostly throughout Europe with additional tours in China and North America. A key festival highlight was the triumphant headlining set on the Countdown Stage at Roskilde Festival.
“This album is a message of love, but if you think love can conquer all, try and give a kiss to a rattlesnake” - Anton Falck Gansted
Spring 2017 will see the release of their highly anticipated debut album ‘A Prayer For The Unemployed’ , the album was produced with the boys with guidance by Troels Damgaard Holm and Malthe Fischer. The record will be released worldwide on May 12th 2017 via Escho.
First Hate are a synth-pop duo from Copenhagen consisting of Anton Falck Gansted and Joakim Norgaard. The duo combine lo-fi synthetically programmed melodies and drum beats fused with live keyboard recordings, Gansted’s deep reverb drained vocals at the forefront of the bands sound. In September 2014, the band released their self titled debut EP ‘First Hate’. The band have recently toured with two established Danish acts, producer Trentemøller on his tour of eastern Europe (October 2014) and with fellow Mayhem residents Iceage in the UK (April 2015). In March 2016 they'll release their second EP on Copenhagen label Escho.
