| WWW | | |

Aurelio Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, creator of comic books, animation and toys.

An internationally touring musician, he is at the forefront of the Gothic, Steampunk and Dark Cabaret genres headlining some of the biggest horror, sci-fi and comic book conventions as well as Gothic and Steampunk festivals for nearly two decades. His music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a convention audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his songs “Brains!” and “Land of the Dead” from the Cartoon Network show “The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy”.
Voltaire’s live shows, whether solo or with his skeletal orchestra, are full of stories and games. Many describe his shows as sitting around a fire while an old friend regales you with tales, presuming that old friend drinks a liter of rum a night, dates zombie prostitutes and wrestles Krakens.

Voltaire has been recording and touring for over 15 years.  He’s released 11 full length CDs.


tll-candle-_-pumpkin-7Panic Lift

| WWW | |

It’s been 3 years since the release of Panic Lift’s inspiring sophomore album “Is This Goodbye?” on Metropolis Records. The album pushed the band boldly in new directions while expanding on what they had already achieved with their debut “Witness to our Collapse” and created a buzz that resulted in 2 nationwide tours and a handful of high profile festival appearances.

This fall, Panic Lift returns with their third album “Skeleton Key” This new album finds the band returning to a more aggressive sound, a move which front man James Francis says was the result of a renewed appreciation for his older material. “When we were on tour, i found myself playing older songs next to our newer songs night in and night out’ James explained. “It really helped me realize that blending the aggression with the softer and more emotional moments was really what defined our sound. So i took that idea and used it as my inspiration when i returned to the studio” The result was a sprawling 13 song opus that fearlessly dives through and re-images Panic Lift’s sound while blending genres and styles together, something has become a cornerstone to Panic Lift’s music.

Panic Lift has carved its niche in the dark electronic music scene with a blend of hard industrial, elements of Synth-pop, Dance and Rock. The new album, Skeleton Key, once again proves that the only constant element of the band is change.


tll-candle-_-pumpkin-7The Amatory Murder

WWW | | |

The Amatory Murder is an alternative rock n’ roll project founded by Christian Peppas (also known as his alias ‘Xian’) in Brooklyn, New York.
Xian and his band employ a variety of foundational sounds utilizing synthetic atmospheres, piano and programmed beat arrangements. Mixed with organic drums, heavy guitars and catchy hooks, the tracks are then topped off with angst­ridden (and usually political) lyrics. Currently, the lineup also includes Fox Zozo (Bass Guitar), ‘Governor’ Christian Buckley (Lead Guitar) and Scott Genovese (Drums/Percussion). All albums and recordings thus far have been engineered, produced, financed and released entirely by the band themselves. Everything is done in­house.

In addition to regional touring and sharing the stage with acts including Julien­K, The Dreaming, Justin Symbol, Megosh, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult and Blood On The Dance Floor, The Amatory Murder have been playing out in promotion of their two most recent endeavors. ‘F*ck It! We’ll Do It Live (At King Killer)!’ is a live album recorded in June 2016 during a show at their home base of King Killer Studios; ‘Neurotica’ is their newest full­length studio album released in November 2016 and their most accessible to date. ‘Neurotica’ includes their singles/music videos ‘The Deadliest Rose’ and ‘U & I’. In 2014 they released their EP ‘Exploiting Our Dreams’ which included remixes from artists including James Francis (Panic Lift) and Elliot Berlin (Combichrist, Telemark) and comes with the single/video for ‘A Haunting’.

The Amatory Murder ultimately plan on taking the world’s stage, winning over each being at a time with their unique, enduring sound.


tll-candle-_-pumpkin-7The Long Losts

| |

If Tim Burton hired Siouxsie Sioux and Johnny Ramone to write the soundtrack for a romantic movie that takes place at a haunted carnival on Halloween night you would have the unique garage-goth-punk-rock sound of The Long Losts.

Hailing from New York, The Long Losts are a musical act duo made up of vocalist Anka and her husband Patrick on guitar. Inspired by their mutual love of Halloween, Autumn, gothic horror, ghost stories, punk, metal, goth rock and each other, they started The Long Losts in 2012 with the release of their first song, “If Only Boris Karloff Was My Dad.” In 2014 The Long Losts released their first album, “Scary Songs To Play In the Dark.” Their music combines haunting vocals, spooky keyboards, horror sound effects and rock guitar with lyrics celebrating all things old and spooky. Edgar Allen Poe, Boris Karloff, Lily Munster, Edward Gorey, haunted houses, autumn and vintage Halloween culture are some of the inspirations for their goth punk tunes.
