Connecticut-based synth band Twitch The Ripper are streaming “Strange Behavior”, a new song which comes from their upcoming album Colorblind (out August 14th via Metropolis Records). You can hear the song on their Official Facebook page. The band states that another song will be available for streaming in the next few weeks although they don’t say which one it will be.
Colorblind was produced by Mark Saunders (Siouxie and the Banshees, The Sounds, Shiny Toy Guns) and mastered by Ted Phelps of Imperative Reaction. You can pre-order the album here. READ MORE
Electronic duo Twitch The Ripper (Bodiless review here) will be hitting the road this fall on The Triptych Tour, which features Imperative Reaction, God Module, and System Syn. Having seen these guys on the Thrill Kill Kult tour, I highly recommend that you go and check them out! Once on stage, they seem to enter a trance where the music and the performance is everything. It’s something that I rarely see and I enjoyed every minute of their set. You can check out the full touring schedule at their official website.
Metropolis recording artists COMBICHRIST have been tapped as main support for RAMMSTEIN’s first and only show on U.S. soil in ten years at NYC’s legendary Madison Square Garden. The show will take place on Saturday, December 11, 2010.
Rammstein and Combichrist are no strangers to each other. Both bands toured Europe together for four months in 2010, strengthening a tie that ultimately brought them together for what will undoubtedly be an amazing evening of beat-driven metal and industrialized mayhem.
While Rammstein will be returning from a tour of Latin America before this show, Combichrist will have wrapped up their previously announced U.S. Monsters On Tour with Aesthetic Perfection and iVardensphere as support as well as a handful of dates in Australia. Due to the announced Madison Square Garden date, the previously announced New York City date on November 20th has been canceled (refunds available at point of purchase). In addition, the Montreal, QC on November 18th has been canceled as well. Replacement shows on those dates have been announced in Ithaca, NY and Pittsburgh, PA.
With the release of their fifth studio album Making Monsters coming on September 28, 2010, Metropolis recording artists Combichrist have announced dates for Monsters on Tour with support from Aesthetic Perfection and Ivardensphere. Tickets for the tour go on sale this weekend (tour dates below).
Kicking off on November 3rd in New Orleans and circling around the States, this is the band’s first tour of the US after four months on the road supporting Rammstein in Europe. Combichrist’s much lauded and respected live shows are, as Crypt Magazine describes, “known for tons of energy, blood, and a rock n’ roll attitude.” BlogCritics also warns it’s “not for the faint of heart – you wouldn’t bring your grandmother to this show.”
