Support Lesbiens is a Czech musical group.[1] It was founded in 1992. Their single "Cliché" was the first single by a Czech English-singing group to reach number one in an official radio chart IFPI. The band is considered to be a part of the New Age genre, though it carries many Rock features as well. After the release of a new single "Changes" (in May 2013) with the new band members, the band is currently working on new album that should be ready in autumn 2013.

Musical career[edit]

Support Lesbiens experienced a tough start in the Czech musical scene due to a general skepticism against Czech bands singing in English. Their first two albums were known by only the most die-hard Czech fans, but their break came with the album Regeneration?, which jump-started their rise to domestic fame.

After their fourth album Tune Da Radio, the band's lead guitarist and writer Jaromír Helešic left the band, leading to a slight turn away from the Rock genre to a more modern style.

In May 2013, the group announced a new, as yet unnamed album, due to be released in autumn 2013.[2]

In May, 2013, the band released a brand new single.[3]
