Millionaire is a Belgian indie rock band led by Tim Vanhamel, drawing on influences from stoner rock, indie and industrial rock music.



Millionaire was formed in 1999 by former Evil Superstars and dEUS guitarist Tim Vanhamel.[1] In 2000 they recorded their first album, entitled Outside the Simian Flock .

During a concert opening for the Masters of Reality in the SMAK (Ghent) they came to the attention of Josh Homme of the Queens of the Stone Age.[1] Subsequently they were asked to support Queens of the Stone Age on their European and American tours, and have since toured with Muse and Foo Fighters.

In 2005 the band released their second album Paradisiac produced by Josh Homme[1] and finetuned at the studio of fellow Queen of the Stone Age Alain Johannes. Homme has also played guitar with Millionaire for some live performances.

In 2006 Millionaire toured with the Taste Of Chaos 2006 festival in the US.[2][3]

In 2007 the band contributed two songs to the soundtrack of Belgian film Ex Drummer, "Deep Fish" and a cover of the Devo song "Mongoloid".[4][5]

On 5 December 2008 they announced they were working on a new album.
