My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult
Hailing from Chicago’s renowned Wax Trax! Records stable of recording artists, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult have been conjuring up sonic tales of sex, blasphemy and kitschy horror since 1987. Along with labelmates such as Front 242, KMFDM and Ministry, Thrill Kill Kult helped develop the industrial music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating one of the most diverse repertoires in modern day music. The sound has been described as electronic rock with cinematic overtones, yet heavily influenced by both disco and funk. One of their most distinctive characteristics is the use of spoken samples lifted from B-movies laced within the tracks. They have released 14 studio albums and have been featured in many notable films, television/cable shows and soundtracks, including the classic cult film, The Crow, where the band makes their cinematic debut performing the song “After The Flesh”. They continue to tour and release new material, all the while making a reputation for themselves as one of the most notorious and controversial cult bands of their generation.

The Chicago-based electronic rock quintet I:Scintilla formed in 2003 and soon after self-released their debut album, The Approach (2004). After a year packed with live performances, I:Scintilla signed to Belgian electro label Alfa-Matrix and released their first EP Havestar (2006) and second full-length album Optics in 2007. Optics peaked at #6 on the Deutsche Alternative Charts Top 10 Albums list. Preceding the album release, I:Scintilla performed at Leipzig’s Wave-Gotik-Treffen in May 2007. The band toured the states extensively through 2008 with darkwave band The Crüxshadows. The following year, I:Scintilla released an EP titled Prey On You, and their third album Dying & Falling (2010). In 2012, I:Scintilla released a pair of EPs: the “Marrow 1” (acoustic) and “Marrow 2”. After a brief hiatus, I:Scintilla began recording their fourth album in the Spring of 2017 at Shirk Studios in Chicago, IL with producer Greg Panciera (Sylvia Massy, Alessandro Cortini of Nine Inch Nails, Dave Bianco). The record, entitled Swayed, will be released September 21, 2018, preceded by the first single ‘Carmena Saturna’. Swayed will be the first album of all-new material since 2010’s Dying and Falling. I:Scintilla’s current lineup consists of vocalist Brittany Bindrim, guitarist Jim Cookas, drummer Vince Grech (Sister Machine Gun, Stromkern), bassist Dean Dunakin, and guitarist Myles Arwine.
