On the radio the band took third place in the number of rotations and left such bands as Erasure, New Order and The Smiths behind. "The Great Commandment" hit and "Voices&Images" debut album became the classics of the genre for all admirers of synthpop.

In 1989 their second album "Methods Of Silence" was released, which included world-famous hit "Love Is A Shield" - one of the most powerful club and radio hits at the end of the '80s.

In 1991 Camouflage recorded their third album "Meanwhile", where they used lots of live instruments, including the guitar. Texts of the songs were very deep and emotional. In 2003 the long-awaited "Sensor" album appeared; it was romantic, lyrical and drive at the same time. Do not miss your chance to hear these new songs here, in Saint-Petersburg on the 1st of November in the Cultural centre named after Lensovet.
