Formed in 1996 in London with Marc Massive an ex model and dancer for Boy George’s 90’s Jesus Loves You band, DJ and art event curator fronting the band from the beginning through several line-up changes. Massive Ego started out as part of the short lived new romantic revival scene in the UK called ‘Romo’, culminating in a glowing half page review by Simon Price in leading UK music newspaper Melody Maker. Over the years Massive Ego have played the length and breadth of the UK at clubs and festivals including dates in Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Nottingham, Brighton, and London's Finsbury Park and Trafalgar Square in front of thousands, and seen several single and album releases both in the UK,Germany,Belgium, Japan and Australia, and tracks featured on well over 40 compilation albums. The band are also known for their 'out there' promo videos & Marc's androgynous style, best summed up by GT magazine in 2011; "In a way avant-garde band Massive Ego can't even be analysed in a normal, earthly way. And actually we feel like the genre grouping avant-garde doesn't suit them either. We think they should have their own genre .Maybe something like, electroslut clash, or eyeliner punk. Either way any band whose lead singer looks like a cross between Amanda Palmer and Voldemort has to be at least paid some attention.” Several releases later 2012 saw the band working on new material with the electronic Irish band Empire State Human with their first release ‘Sound Of The Download’ on the band’s own label Public Disordar Records went down a storm with an ecstatic crowd at Summer Rites Festival in Shoreditch Park, London. A stand alone digital single release of Massive Ego’s dark electronic gothic cover of the classic Hazel O’Connor 80‘s track ‘Eighth Day’ was released on Halloween 2012, with all profits going to an animal welfare charity, something Marc feels strongly about. The band were originally known for their new wave electro pop sound but that all changed in 2013 becoming increasingly interested in the darker EBM/Industrial/Goth scene their new material reflected this shift in style. Early 2013 and Marc Massive supplied lyrics and vocals to a track called Dead Silence by Lia Organa & Electric Prince feat Marc Massive, released through Belgian label Black Leather Records with a brilliant video produced by Polish film makers Suka Off and a remix package including The Horrorist and People Theatre. Back in the studio work began on the Noise In The Machine EP. The EP features the dark and brooding I Idolize You, Dead Silence Rising & Generation V tracks. Marc Massive who had just interviewed Daniel Graves (Aesthetic Perfection)for his radio show secured a brand new Aesthetic Perfection remix of the EP’s lead track I Idolize You alongside a recently commissioned Leaether Strip remix which finishes off the EP in style. 2015 sees something of a renaissance for the band who are fast approaching their 20th Anniversary, having just signed with leading German industrial label Out Of Line Records and are currently working on a new album in London.
