Caustic (Madison, Metropolis Records/Undustrial Records)
Everything Goes Cold (San Francisco, Metropolis Records)
Crashfaster (San Francisco, Monobomb Records)
Madison’s prolific industrial punk stompers Caustic celebrates ten years of live performance alongside San Francisco’s electronic rockers Everything Goes Cold and Crashfaster.
Caustic’s first live performance was September 4th, 2004, and eventually led to performing worldwide on bills with everyone from Atari Teenage Riot to Infected Mushroom to KMFDM. This is one of Caustic’s rare hometown performances and is a precursor to their September 27th performance with industrial/ebm legends Front 242 at the Metro in Chicago at the Cold Waves III Music Festival. Caustic’s last release was the acclaimed 18 track epic ‘The Man Who Couldn’t Stop’, inspired by the 18 chapters of James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’ (This is not a joke. Trust me.) It was followed up by 2013’s ‘Copraphagia/Consummatia EP’ and the free b-sides/covers/remix Bandcamp release OBΔMΔCΔRE.
Caustic is Matt Fanale in the studio, but for this performance will be Fanale, Eric Oehler (Null Device), Emily Mills (Little Red Wolf, Damsel Trash), and Mae Hymn (former CTRLSHFT).
San Francisco’s frenetic Everything Goes Cold just released their second full length ‘Black Out The Sun’ on Metropolis Records (home of Skinny Puppy, Electric 6, and Mindless Self Indulgence). Far from your standard industrial band, EGC combines hard edged coldwave-era industrial rock with a tongue-in-cheek humorous edge that should not overshadow (especially with the new release) the deeper undertones of the material.
San Francisco’s Crashfaster initially made their name as a chiptune band, but have added more and more of an electro rock flavor to their last full length album ‘Further’ and are on their first tour with EGC on their new EP ‘Superchroma’. Crashfaster can be compared to fellow chiptune rockers Anamanaguchi (who they recently shared a stage with), and have been heralded for their energetic live shows.
