Finland's best kept secret Plan E is a unique and one-of-its-kind non-guitar dark rock band. The group was formed in May 1995 by vocalist/bassist/song writer Jani Lehtosaari.
During the first ten years of being around Plan E has gone through several line-up changes and released bunch of studio recordings. No live performances have ever been done.
Today this five-headed group is signed on the Italian indie record label My Kingdom Music and their 4th studio album "Bassonova" has been released worldwide March 2006.
It's all about the sound! Rhythm is the key! Just add more bass! No compromises!
