A total legend of electronic pop who are coming to Sonar to present “Credo", their new studio album. The Human League have been around since 1977, and were at the forefront of techno pop in the 1980s, with a collection of singles and albums that are today regarded as timeless classics of the genre, and which have influenced dozens of artists in all spheres of recent popular music. From Madonna to Moby, from the Pet Shop Boys to SND and the new icons of the dubstep generation, the list is as extensive as the credentials of this musical icon from Sheffield. After a decade's silence, and bakced by the production of the acclaimed duo I Monster, the League are back on the attack, having overhauled their ideas on pop, dance, glamour and electronica. The visit to Sónar by Joanne Catherall, Philip Oakey and Susan Ann Sulley is essential for anyone wishing to hear their new material live, and to relive the classics of their long reign as the kings of synth pop at the same time.
