Clan Of Xymox The Bellwether Syndicate, Aertex

Doors | 7:00 pm // Show | 8:00 pm

The Bellwether Syndicate

Formed in 2012, THE BELLWETHER SYNDICATE is fronted by veteran artist William Faith (vocals/guitars), and Sarah Rose Faith (vocals/guitars). While the studio recordings are made by William and Sarah alone, the live lineup includes Paul Sin (bass) and Philly Peroxide (keyboards/percussion) and Stevyn Grey (drums). The band have always sought to color outside of prescribed genre lines, endeavoring to push past the boundaries of style into something substantial and vital.
Released in 2013, The Night Watch EP was supported by a string of dates both domestic and abroad, culminating in the band delivering a celebrated performance at Germany’s storied Wave-Gotik-Treffen festival in 2014.
Released in 2018 (as a single from the forthcoming album), Republik is an alluring piece of glam noir, fusing a raw, swing groove with William’s crooned vocal, itself a lyrical lamentation of the erosion of communication between people in this troubled era, while Sarah’s liquid guitars gently sweeten the delivery before the song gives way to an instantly-memorable, anthemic chorus, bursting with glam rock guitar and tribal drums, as the timely lyric compels us to “wake up” and turn back from the precipice while there’s still time…

Aertex

Hailing from Washington DC, Chris Moore (Repulsion, Coke Bust, The Rememberables), and Josephine Olivia (Blacksage, Vosh) formed Aertex in 2018. Bringing elements of goth, post-punk, and darkwave together in their debut 2-song demo “Superstition”. In the short period of time being a band they have already played shows with The Psychedelic Furs, Boy Harsher, She Past Away, Gost, SRSQ, Unmaker and many others.
