USSR 1926 a live soundtrack to Dziga Vertov's A Sixth Part of the World by We Stood Like Kings

This new soundtrack project was composed and recorded between the end of 2014 and the summer of 2015. It was released in October 2015 on vinyl and CD by the German label Kapitän Platte, followed by a 6-week promotional tour across Europe.

Hello, we play live post-rock to silent movies.

To whoever loves silent films and instrumental rock music, the name We Stood Like Kings must ring a bell. This 4-piece post-rock band from Brussels, Belgium is on the verge of becoming a reference act in live soundtracks to silent film classics. With piano as a central instrument, We Stood Like Kings builds up a wall of sound that blends soft, epic, intense and refined sections. So far, We Stood Like Kings has composed BERLIN 1927, a soundtrack to Walther Ruttmann's Die Sinfonie der Großstadt, which was released in 2014 on Kapitän Platte and programmed in already more than seventy cinema halls and rock venues across Europe. In 2015, the band has presented a new project, USSR 1926, a soundtrack to Dziga Vertov's A Sixth Part of the World.
