Founded in January 2019, Bend The Future is a progressive rock band based in Grenoble, France.

Identified generally by their odd-time-scaled tunes, they incorporate elements of '70s prog rock, jazz, funk along with Eastern Europe music in their sound. Bend the Future was initiated by Can Yıldırım (guitars/voice), Rémi Pouchain (bass), Pierre-Jean Ménabé (saxophone) and Piel Pawlowski (drums). More recently, the band has reached its final formation after Samy Chebre (keyboards) joined. During the last days of summer in Little Big Studios, Grenoble, they recorded their debut album "Pendellösung". The album was released 2019 via Soundeffect Records.

In 2020 the band signed to Tonzonen Records.

"Surprising riffs and rhythms and an approach to music that is far from conventional."
