Live show plans are in the works. It is do or die this time. So far I have Steve aka FRO on board. I need one more person, Thorsten does not seem interested :( I am looking for someone who can play guitar and synths and is really into VAC, and the dark side of music. I wont say tour. But I will say shows. I had a long chat with Tom Shear of A23 on facebook a while back and he told me how to do it and make money. I cannot thank him enough for the information because he tours and manages to make money. I don’t think I want to tour with any other bands. I just want to play with other local bands of each town. I think my set list will be about 1 hour and a half and If i cannot get a guitarist to go on tour with me, no guitar songs will be played live :( I suck at singing and playing guitar. I am a studio baby LOL.
Click here to hear the newest sound clips from the new Velvet Acid Christ LP “MALDIRE”. I have gotten great feedback from the labels, Stefan Herwig even likes it, Dave Heckman liked it, and they had been critical of my last few cds. So they think I have tapped back into what the fans want, what the clubs want instead of all the experimentation and pop songs I did on lust for blood and the art of breaking apart. Maldire is dark, dance friendly and evil and seething. It captures the spirit of calling of the dead, and the dance appeal of fun with knives, but is even more brutal and musical than those records. I think Maldire will bring people back to the scene of yesteryear, when Wumpscut had embryo dead out, Covenant had sequencer, and Haujobs did solutions for a small planet. Maldire doesn’t try to be new and fresh, it tries to refine the sound that had the club floors packed, and the scene way bigger than it is today. So if you like the old school sound of industrial, MALDIRE will completely satisfy you. No detuned crappy trance lead techno pop ebm here. This is dark brutal pissed off metal clanging ebm and industrial that no one is doing anymore.
We will be playing in early 2013 in Denver at a festival, I will update you when more details are available. I am working on costumes, masks, and lighting and presentation for the VAC shows of 2012 and 2013. This is not a false alarm. I have the backing of metropolis. I want to make these shows a visual experience as well, I hope I can pull it off with a limited budget, and I plan on filming the audience at every show, to reverse the invasion. :) LOL I am invading you.
I am also working on vocals for the next VAC LP, working title “MAUVAIS”, I doubt the lp will keep that title, it is just a working title. I think it means “BAD” in french. LOL didn’t Michael Jackson have an LP called “BAD”. lol. I just love those old french words. So pretty. This lp will come out i think in spring of next year.
