Philtron was founded in 1995 by Sven, Janne and Rico. Started up as a synth-pop band in Hamburg/Germany. They soon managed to become the first band to be signed on Project Pitchfork's own new label Candyland Entertainment, where they released their first EP "NO PROMISES" in 1996. That same year, they released their first longplayer "PHILTROPOLIS" and went touring throughout Germany, mostly in smaller clubs and some summer-festivals. After having made some success within the german gothic-new wave-electro-scene, they recorded their second album on Candyland "NONE" (1997).
