Watch & Listen
Stabbing Westward is an American industrial rock band. They formed in 1986 in Macomb, Illinois, but did not release their first studio album until eight years later. The band released three more studio albums before announcing a dissolution on February 9, 2002. Stabbing Westward reunited in 2016 to celebrate their 30th anniversary together, and will play more shows in 2017.
Regarding the band's name, Andy Kubiszewski said: "essentially when Chris and Walter were putting the band together, they had a gig and there was a deadline for a name for the band, so they pulled out a bunch of album covers and they pulled out a record cover and it had an excerpt from, I believe it was an Eisenhower speech, where he was talking about communism coming to the west and he used the phrase 'stabbing westward,' and they went oh well, 'Stabbing Westward,' that will work."
Ego Likeness are an American darkwave/industrial rock band from Baltimore, Maryland. The were formed in 1999 by artist Steven Archer and writer Donna Lynch.
Taking their name from Frank Herbert's classic science fiction novel Dune, Ego Likeness began as an experimental/ dark trip hop project. A demo called 'Songs from a Dead City', recorded on a four track and self-produced by Archer and Lynch, was released in 1999.
Archer and Lynch took the project in a darker electronic/ dance direction, resulting in a self-released full length album entitled 'Dragonfly' under EL's own label, Angelfall.
After a short hiatus from recording, a lengthy period of trial, error, revision, and many live performances, Ego Likeness signed with Dancing Ferret Discs for the release of 'Water to the Dead'. This album featured the band's electronic roots while exploring a bit of a heavier rock sound.
Ego Likeness toured Germany, Luxembourg, and the continental US with Dancing Ferret label mates The Crüxshadows, as well as performing at several festivals on the east and west coast, including Convergence 11 (San Diego CA), Dracula's Ball (Philadelphia PA), Black Sun Festival I (New Haven CT), Freaks United (DC), Eccentrik Festival I (Raleigh NC), Dragon Con (Atlanta GA), Ring Con (Fulda, Germany) and others.
We Love The Underground
We Love the Underground was started in 2010 by Brad W. Cox and boasts members from various successful east coast projects, including: Skitzo Calypso, Arizona Bay, Nobody Likes Neville and Roll It Over. Joe Ruggiero, Patrick Sise, Eric McCullough, Gary Holmes and Brad Cox have assembled a dramatic and often experimental rock n' roll project, intent to transcend limitation. The band takes a kitchen-sink approach, and has released two genre-bending albums, which include hints of: Jazz, Metal, Punk, Rock, Latin and Classical works. The stage show remains a high-energy experience, but the studio is their tabula rasa and often cinematic.
