Jairus Khan of Ad·ver·sary and Nick Thériault of Antigen Shift took their shared opportunity at this year’s Kinetik Festival in Montreal to address the portrayal of sexism and racism in the industrial genre. Khan (joined by Thériault on-stage) created a public service announcement denouncing the anti-racial and sexist themes of artists such as Combichrist and Nachtmahr (for whom Khan and Thériault were opening). The video was debuted during Ad·ver·sary’s performance. Khan and Thériault spoke to I Die: You Die before and after the performance; the interview and video are available on the publication’s website, with Combichrist’s Andy LaPlegua and Nachtmahr’s Thomas Rainier commenting.
