The second show will be in Madison at Club Inferno on Saturday, September 14th along with the American progressive darkwave musical duo band Oneiroid Psychosis from New Glarus, Wisconsin on Psylab Studios.
We had a fantastic show on Saturday and really enjoyed sharing a stage and getting to hear some new music by Gentleman Loser with a special appearance by The Mad City Sister Nuns along with some really well done NIN covers by incekt! Shotglass Sally joined us with grinding for four of our songs and Mizz Lillzz did a couple of fabulous sword belly dance routines on the back stage during the intervals between bands. Also there were absolutely delicious KUPCAKES by Kate!
There was a really good crowd with lots of energy and friends we haven’t seen in many years. We showcased three of our new songs that will be on our new album “Voyager” coming out Summer 2013, which were a smashing success! We also sold a few CD’s, made some new friends, and only came away with a few minor cuts n bruises.
Thank you to all of our darklings who made it to the 3rd annual Cyber Perversion show at Club Inferno in Madison, Wisconsin! We had a lot of fun with our Avengers costumes and we really enjoyed playing with our co-villains Cynergy 67 (Upper WI), V is for Villains (Chicago, IL), and AS/OF (Minneapolis,MN), along with DJ EfN (Green Bay, WI), and our very own DJ Psych0tron (Madison, WI). Thanks to Apollo of the Inferno for a great venue space and to Rooster for running sound for all of us.
We were able to showcase two of our new songs “Freedom from Religion” and “Sirens of the Sea”, we just completed this past September. Both songs went over really well and we received a few kudos for them. “Freedom from Religion” is a word speak with a melodic chorus. Since we have never done a song like this before, the style of writing and performance really shocked some some people. “Sirens of the Sea” is definitely going to be a dance floor favorite as many started bouncing as soon as it began. All in all, it was a really fun fest and we look forward to doing it again next year!
Over the next few months, we’ll be working hard to write and record music for our next CD “Voyager”. We’re excited to get something new into your hands by Summer of 2013!

Since you last heard from us in August, we’ve been working on a few new songs this fall that we’re excited to showcase for you on October 20th. We’ll be performing at Club Inferno in Madison, Wisconsin for the 3rd Annual Cyber Perversion. The first song we previously performed at our last show titled Red Ropes, was inspired by a beautiful woman who thoroughly enjoys sensory rope play. The second song is Freedom from Religion, which we think will be a new favorite. We’ll be performing this one in a different style that imitates or mimics speak-say or rap using a female computer voice setting. Finally the third song is Sirens of the Sea we’re attempting to finalize this week.
Aside from working full time, I’m also attending Madison College trying to finish up my A.S. in Marketing. In one of my classes this semester I’m working as an Intern for the Literacy Network of Dane County, Madison. This will really help me gain experience working for a business doing Marketing with an emphasis on Social Media. Needless to say, it’s been a rough month, but we’re still able to squeeze in a couple of rehearsals each week to make sure we’re staying on top of things and to prepare for our next show on in October.
Right now we have about half the songs we need for our next CD “Voyager”, and although we wanted to get it done by the end of the year, it looks like it’s going to be more like Spring of 2013 if all goes well. So keep listening and tuning in each week as we talk about the process of creating these songs and what inspires us.
We have a great show for you on Wednesday, July 11th at The Frequency, 121 W. Main St. downtown Madison!
This is an 18+ Show – $5 cover – Doors at 8:00pm

I recently put together a vBlog about how I program stage lights for “The Void”. You’ll notice there aren’t any vocals on this particular song, because we haven’t actually recorded them yet. We will soon rectify this!
Let us know what you think.
A quick video blog about our light setup, and a few minutes of the yet to be released track “The Void”
