Ft. Worth, TX, The Grotto, 04/27/2013
When one hears the name Sean Beavan, it’s easy to conjure up memories of his work with Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson among many other successful acts over the past 20 years. However, that’s the Sean Beavan behind the scenes turning knobs and perfecting other artists’ work. The Sean Beavan in 8mm is an entirely different beast who has, along with his partner in life and music, Juliette, created something musically superior to almost anything else heard on the radio or in music videos and they’ve accomplished it as an independent act.

New York City, NY, Irving Plaza, 04/26/2013
The words “rock n’ roll” have been used in many forms since first being coined in the early ’20s. Originally referring to blues-based music with a strong backbeat, the term has become a catch-all that most (serious) music fans understand has far more to do with the attitude and approach of a performer than whatever sounds may come as a result. While IAMX, with its deeply introspective lyrics, lithe vocals and layered electronics, may not be one’s typical point of reference for rock n’ roll, this writer can think of no better term to describe the band’s recent performance at New York City’s Irving Plaza.

May 17-20, 2013
Fallen to the frozen beginning of spring, Leipzig stumbles back into the path that looms in the shadows – shop keepers plan their windows, removing the colorful pastel shades that once beamed out of their looking glass for monotones that only absorb light. Wave Gotik Treffen has reappeared for its 22nd birthday and will most likely be, again, the largest Gothic gathering on the earth’s soil. [..]
London, UK, O2 Islington, 04/20/2013
KMFDM’s tour across the USA with CHANT and Legion Within might have run its course, but the Ultra Heavy Beat masters have never before missed a chance to indulge their British audience and their return to London was every bit as memorable and exciting as you would expect from the godfathers of industrial rock and the genre’s undeniable titans. The gig might have been in danger of losing some of its impact without the two supports that shaped the experience for the American fans, but that was certainly not the case. [..]
Seattle, WA, Showbox SoDo, 03/30/2013
Showbox SoDo was packed with a varied crowd and a genuine, buzzing excitement for this final show of the KMFDM KUNST tour, featuring the return of Legion Within and Steve White. Despite this being the last stop of the tour (or perhaps because of it), there was no lack of energy from any of the bands, which truly made this show an experience to be had. [..]
Pittsburgh, PA, Mr. Small’s Theatre, 03/22/2013
After a long Ultra-Heavy Beat drought, KMFDM finally returned to Pittsburgh to support the latest album, KUNST, and Pittsburgh enthusiastically welcomed the band back with open arms and a surprisingly sold-out crowd. Accompanied by Legion Within and CHANT for the tour and local artists Rein[Forced] supplying additional support, the lineup made for an interesting and varied night. [..]
