When The Young Gods requested a poster from me for their upcoming show in Fribourg, Switzerland (their home town), I was immediately very excited and greatly honoured to accept the commission. This show is sure to be legendary.
I sent the band a message to accept, but also warned that I may have to reinvent the wheel to make the poster happen. This is the first concert poster entirely designed in my new art studio in Grasse, France.
I do not have a printing studio here in Grasse at present, so I had to think fast, to find a way to produce an edition of these posters.
Luckily I have friends in Torino, Italy (just four hours away) with an excellent print studio, Sericraft. Giampo Copperoni made me an introduction to Sericraft some years ago, and again I asked him to reach out to Sericraft during the busiest month of the year, to request their top-notch printing expertise. The team at Sericraft was excited by the idea, accepted to print for me, and I am thankful, they have produced an amazing edition!
The Young Gods poster will be available through The Young Gods at the concert on Friday, December 22, 2023 at Fri-Son, Fribourg.
I will make a very limited online launch through EQL starting on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at 12 noon PST. The launch closes on Sunday, January 21, 2024 at 12 noon PST.

Show announcement from the Fri-Son Auditorium in Fribourg:
The Young Gods are back home!
There are infinite superlatives to refer to the legendary Friborg group The Young Gods. The trio — which has played countless times on our big stage and each time to a full house — is back on December 22, 2023 for a concert as part of our 40th anniversary year.
Pioneering wizards of sound, The Young Gods have been pushing the horizon of possibilities for almost 40 years now. From the industrial punk of their beginnings through the techno-shamanic intoxications of the last decades, The Young Gods have forged a unique sound, acquiring the status of legends of the European scene.
Hailed by the British press since 1987, praised by David Bowie and Nine Inch Nails, The Young Gods have released more than 10 albums, once reinterpreting the legendary Woodstock concert live alongside Richie Havens at Fri-Son in 2009, and also collaborating with the hip-hop group Dälek, and with Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantomâs).
This traditional end-of-year event is also the last show in our “40 years” concert series: on this occasion The Young Gods will play their classics, from 1985 to today, and maybe even a few new ones. An evening which takes on a very special dimension for the group which cut its teeth here, and of which Franz Treichler is one of the founding members.
Adding to the splendor of this evening which promises to be grandiose, we are delighted to welcome the Lucerne group of Schnellertollermeier as the opening act.
Fri-Son x The Young Gods: Both Loud & Proud since 1983-1985.
