The Riot Room, Kansas City, MO – 09/03/2018
 

 

Kansas City was the next to last show in Glitch Mode Recordings’ summer Decode Tour, which featured flagship act Cyanotic accompanied by KANGA, Amelia Arsenic, RELIC, and For All the Emptiness. Performing 24 shows in 32 days with five bands can be difficult, but this cybernetic conglomeration made it an exercise in efficiency with the requirement of only seven people to make all five bands work.

Bar XIII, Wilmington, DE – 08/02/2018
 

 

There was quite an abundance of summer tours in the industrial and hard electronic scene in 2018. One of the most anticipated was the Glitch Mode Decode Tour, a showcase of two of the independent imprint’s finest acts – Cyanotic and Amelia Arsenic – with associated acts KANGA and For All the Emptiness, as well as a few special guests along the way. Of course, you know what they say about the best laid plans, and the first night of the tour was already brimming with difficulties that necessitated the absence of two of the main acts; it was the sort of setback that has been known to break other performing acts, but like a Skynet Terminator, the Glitch Mode Squad “absolutely will not stop!” [..]

Baltimore Soundstage, Baltimore, MD – 09/10/2018
 

 

Killing Joke… well, what else needs to be said? More of an institution than a band after four decades, Killing Joke has remained one of the most vital and relevant artistic entities in existence – defying the conventions of genre, never adhering to trends, holding fast to a staunchly sociopolitical outlook, and with each member as revered for their creative pursuits outside the band. By the same token, PIG has also garnered its own reputation as one of the industrial music scene’s most ardently perverted and aggressively creative figures. Both of these musical titans embarked on their own respective tours in celebration of their longevity and continued success [..]

With all three bands performing at this year’s ColdWaves events, it’s only natural that a tour should coincide – with two legends of the industrial music scene joined by a promising newcomer, the 2018 tour of ohGr, Lead into Gold, and Omniflux has proven to be one of the year’s most anticipated and exciting events.

El Club, Detroit, MI – 08/22/2018

 

10 years have passed since the last live show from Godflesh in Detroit; we were starting to think we may be cursed to never see them set foot onstage again, with previous booked gigs getting canceled at the last minute. But, here we are at the El Club in Detroit for the return of the grindcore/industrial masters, Godflesh. [..]

Fishhead Cantina, Halethorpe, MD – 08/03/2018
 

 

It can truly be said that Julien-K is one of this generation’s great success stories. Blending electronic, alternative rock, and pop stylings into a musical sound that is as classic as it is modern, the band continues to showcase an ever evolving visual aesthetic that recalls the fashion forward attitudes of Duran Duran and Depeche Mode. Through numerous crowdfunding campaigns, the Julien-K fanbase has proven to be one of the most loyal and supportive in today’s music scene [..]

Aftershock, Merriam, KS – 07/13/2018
 

 

Just before the band kicked off its stint as the opening act for the Revolution 3 Tour, Julien-K performed a handful of headlining shows, one of which occurred in Merriam, KS, on the western part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. The show also doubled as a local music showcase, with a diverse mix of new, old, and some returning bands. [..]
