mind.in.a.box are without a doubt the shooting stars of the domestic electro-industrial scene. While their 2004 debut „Lost Alone“ was well received by the international press, it was the follow-up „Dreamweb“ that marked the real breakthrough for the Austrian duo, showcasing an expert combination of electronic styles and influences from techno to EBM to trance and beyond.
While the following albums „Crossroads“ and „R.E.T.R.O“, along with the single „8 Bits“, all found deserved spots in the upper regions of the German Alternative Charts, the duo continued to refuse offers to perform live until last summer, when after a year of preparations, they appeared as a five-piece at the Arvika Festival to critical acclaim.
Since then the band has played live periodically, surfacing at the Norwegian Elektrostat Festival and Berlin’s E-Tropolis and garnering ever more postivie enthusiastic reviews. Now, we’re pleased to announce the band’s first full-length tour as support for the 19-show European leg of Front Line Assembly’s current world tour.
It may be a cliche, but seriously: you don’t want to miss this!

With just over four weeks until their album drops, The Birthday Massacre have recorded 20,000 to 30,000 plays of the new material on various social networking sites such as MySapce. One thing is clear: the fans are ready and waiting! And rightly so: „Pins and Needles“ is in our opinion the band’s best release to date and will soon be the standard against which all others in the genre will be measured against.

After 5 weeks in the DAC singles charts, peaking this week at #2, it’s clear that the DJs have selected the album track „Angriff“ as the follow-up single to Front Line Assembly album’s massive clubhit „Shifting Through The Lens“. Accordingly, Dependent will release the „Angriff EP“, featuring remixes of the title track as well as unreleased material, this October in time for the FLA tour with mind.in.a.box.
The original version of "Angriff" can be found here
During the past two weeks Dismantled have demonstrated on 10 European stages exactly how to rock without guitars. The British fans were particularly enthralled by the San Diego band’s sweaty, energetic performances as support for Combichrist. Let’s hope that with the release of their upcoming album „Hate Is Coming“, Dismantled can once again find their way to visit at least a few German cities.
Two Wednesdays have passed, so The Birthday Massacre now have a total of four new songs from the forthcoming album "Pins And Needles" in the players of their various websites (myspace, VF, facebook).
And now Dependent enrich this prelistening collection!

Nearly unbelievable - We're pleased and proud to announce that all top slots on the DAC Album Chart have been taken now by the current Dependent releases!
Dependent today confirms September 17th., 2010 as the European release date for The Birthday Massacre’s fourth studio album ”Pins And Needles” on their sub label “Cellar Door”.
Combining their interests in various musical and artistic styles, Toronto based synth rock band The Birthday Massacre create a captivating hybrid of 80's electronica and aggressive guitars, curiously fused with cinematically dark melodic progressions.
With the new album entitled “Pins And Needles”, The Birthday Massacre further refine the unique sound explored on the bands highly acclaimed previous albums: Walking With Strangers, Violet, and the classic debut Nothing and Nowhere. From the opening notes of the lead off track “In The Dark” to the closing chimes of “Secret”, it is evident that “Pins And Needles” is The Birthday Massacre at its collective best. The interplay of driving guitar and rhythm sections, the captivating vocals, and atmospheric keyboards envelop the listeners.
“Pins And Needles“, mixed David Ogilvie (producer of Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson, Killing Joke) promises to be a harder and darker experience than all previous albums, contrasted by the shining melodic vocals of front singer Chibi.
The Birthday Massacre once again lead us down the rabbit hole, and once again invite us to explore the magical wonderland it has created. The band will upload album snippets on their MySpace site shortly, as well as a dedicated website for the new album.
