Prédateurs (English: Predators) is the third full-length album by French band Les Discrets, released on April 21, 2017 by Prophecy Productions. It is their first album without drummer Winterhalter, who left in 2013 to focus on his other band, Alcest, and therefore their first as a duo.
Self-described as "the soundtrack of a slow film noir happening in a train where the journey leads the auditor to several places seen from the windows", Prédateurs is a musical departure from the shoegazing and post-rock sound of previous albums, shifting towards an indie rock sound influenced by electronic music, trip hop, and 1970's film soundtracks. It was preceded by two EPs, Virée Nocturne in August 2016 and Rue Octavio Mey / Fleur des Murailles earlier that year, which were meant to prepare audiences to the upcoming change of the band's sound; several songs from the EPs are featured on the album.
