PLASTIC TEARS is a Finnish rock band founded in 1992 in Helsinki.
The band mixes classic rock with pop, punk, hard rock and glam elements for a unique sound.
The lineup has seen some changes through the years, today Plastic Tears is lead vocalist Miqu December, drummer Eco Xtasy, bassist Edu, guitarists Andy Whitewine and Juha Pietiläinen.
This band has seen it all. Splitting up on stage, fighting through the 90’s when bands with a rock ‘n’ roll image were considered scum of the earth, lineup changes, being dropped by their old record label, gigs with the Cult, Andy McCoy etc. Making debauched appearances on TV, finally getting good response from the major media, great gigs, staying true to their own style and coming back stronger than ever, just when everyone thought the band is gone!
The first official release from the band was the Velvet Flame single in 1994 on Megamania Records. Their debut album, Stranded in Rock ’n’ Roll, was released in 2000. Soon after this the band went on hiatus for a couple of years before getting back together and releasing their second album, Nine Lives Never Dies, on September 23 rd of 2009. On January 18th 2016 the band released a new three track EP called Rhythm Rider.
2017 will see the band featured on the Smack tribute Smacked! and the release of a new album.
