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.
Panic Priest : https://www.facebook.com/PanicPriest/
Death. Sex. Doomed Romance. These three simple phrases define the sound and thematic presence of Panic Priest. The musical project of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jack Armondo (of “dark pop” duo My Gold Mask), Panic Priest is centered around Armondoʼs deep, crooning vocals while weaving together electronic beats, dreamy guitars and synths. Panic Priest creates midnight melodies that wonʼt soon leave your memory as dawn breaks.
Panic Priestʼs debut and self-titled illustration to the world saw itʼs release in May of 2018 under Negative Gain Productions and was mixed and recorded in part by Adam Stillson of the electronic/ shoegaze project New Canyons. Armondo crosses boundaries as he offers a host of technical skill by blending the likes of darkwave, post-punk, and synthpop into one unique melting pot. The album also features guest contributions from members of such acts as Wingtips, NITE, and Airiel.
