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.
