In recent years, Chicago’s ultrasweaty industrial dance dorkstorm, THE GOTHSICLES, have played some of the most talked about live shows at some of the most premiere industrial music festivals around the globe. Compounding a ruinous mix of crass humor, video games and geek culture with an unapologetic EBM affinity, The Gothsicles’ 2011 release “Industrialites & Magic” (WTII Records) reached the #1 spot on Amazon.com for “Most Downloaded” in the “Goth & Industrial” category.

One half of our new label, Negative Gain, and fellow Gothsicle, Micah Skaritka, worked on the new Saints Row title and that is fucking cool.


Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell leaves no deadly sin unchecked - Destructoid
Johnny Gat's not a good man. Powerful, but not good. That's why he uses each and every of the seven deadly sins to send all of those alread...

Mixcloud says I can't listen to this because of licensing restrictions in my country, but maybe you can in yours. The internet is magical.

A lot of things happening right now! We have Cygnets playing tonight with TR/ST while we are gearing up for their 1st release with NGP on November 15, Mr.Kitty just released his North American version of TIME and the limited cassettes are just about sold out AND release parties are happening all across the country, gearing up for the release of The Gothsicles (official) new album Squid Icarus due out this December. Alter Der Ruine is already back in the studio recording new material. Kevorkian Death Cycle is finishing the final mixes of their new album I AM GOD which should be available sometime early 2015. HexRx, is in the studio recording their anticipated album "E". Gentleman Junkie (LA) is also in the studio recording their second album. All of this is happening on top of preparing ourselves for a new release with a new artist in partnership with Basic Unit Productions that we will be announcing very shortly (you are going to LOVE it). We could not be happier than we are right now. Air... I NEED AIR!!!!!

Did you graciously contribute $55 or more to The Gothsicles' Kickstarter? MONDAY, OCT. 6 is the last day for submitting a "custom" name for your Official Production Credit! Otherwise, it'll just default to your Kickstarter name.

Sorry for the imperative action on this semi-necessary response, but the thing's got to go to print quickly if me & Zoog and the good people at Negative Gain are to meet our deliverable date.

I mean, we'll eventually need survey responses from everybody if you're getting something physically mailed or you want to farticipate in the cover song vote, but especially those production credit names.

ANN ARBOR is a cosmic holdout of ancient wizardries, a magical bastion where Mondays completely rock and industrial clubs feel like Cons.

You guys are Mario All-Stars, thanks so much for having us.
