Following the release of his latest LP Alive in New Light earlier this month, IAMX today proudly announces headline show in the UK at the Electric Ballroom, Camden on Saturday 03 March 2018. Legendary tattoo artist and entrepreneur Kat Von D will also take part in the unmissable show.
IAMX, born Chris Corner, is best known for his critically acclaimed dark wave performances which explore the complexities of mutation through sound, visual art and make-up. As the founder of the 90s trip-hop band, Sneaker Pimps, IAMX is no stranger to the spotlight, all of his shows promise theatrical production at arena style quality. Fans can expect a cinematic celebration capturing the giddy phase of metamorphosis Corner currently finds himself in as he takes to the Electric Ballroom stage.
Appearing on four Alive in New Light tracks and along for the transformative ride, is postmodern tattooist and makeup powerhouse, kindred spirit, and super fan, Kat Von D. Kat will join IAMX on stage to perform live music for the first time in her illustrious career. Corner’s soaring, plaintive lyrics, alongside Von D’s sultry tones will make this the hottest ticket in town.
Reflecting on her relationship with Corner, Kat says: “We could easily swap closets and make-up drawers and no one would be able to tell the difference. We both create, not because we want to, but because we HAVE to.”
IAMX can’t wait to get back on stage in the capital ensuring to audiences that “Alive in New Lights is about connecting”.

The world of electronic industrial music has been saddened to learn of the sudden recent death of
Canadian keyboard player and programmer Jeremy Inkel due to complications arising from an asthma condition. He was only 34 years old. Best known for his involvement in the most recent albums by
the veteran act Front Line Assembly, he was also the co-founder of Left Spine Down (LSD) and
produced tracks for various other well known musicians.
Based in Vancouver, he was welcomed into Front Line Assembly in 2005, co-writing and producing
the album ‘Artificial Soldier’ that was released the following year. He also toured with the band,
including festival appearances at the likes of Mera Luna, Summer Darkness and Amphi Festival
and the band’s first ever appearances in Russia. He continued working with FLA on their ensuing
albums ‘Improvised Electronic Device’, ‘Airmech’ (a video game soundtrack) and ‘Echogenetic’.
Jeremy’s involvement with FLA (plus their frontman Bill Leeb's side-project Noise Unit) provided him
with the opportunity to present his ‘other’ band to a wider public, with the result that Left Spine Down
toured with the likes of Revolting Cocks, The Birthday Massacre, Genitorturers and oHGr, plus
a large scale North American trek with 16volt and Chemlab in 2010. Blending elements of industrial,
punk and alternative rock into a sound that was catchy yet abrasive, melodic yet fist-pumping, with
detailed electronica-style programming and a ‘fuck you’ punk attitude, Jeremy had formed LSD with
frontman Kaine Delay. The duo’s final album, ‘Caution’, was released soon after the group had
signed with Metropolis Records.
Bill Leeb of Front Line Assembly has this to say of Jeremy :
“I am truly shocked, heartbroken and saddened beyond belief. Jeremy’s animated larger than life
personality will be truly missed. Everyone who met him walked away saying that he was one of the
nicest people they had ever met. His creativity will also be sorely missed. He had a huge passion for
for music, film and a love of performing. We had recently started creating ideas for a new FLA album,
while he also participated on our upcoming ‘Airmech 2’ release, which we are dedicating to his
memory. Rest easy…. there will always be a place for you with us.”
Metropolis Records have stated that :
“We are stunned and saddened to learn of Jeremy's sudden death. We wish to extend our deepest
condolences to his family, bandmates and friends. His family requests that anyone wishing to make
a gesture in his memory to please make a cash donation at your local food bank. They also request
that we all please remember Jeremy for the kind, funny, soulful and talented person that he was."
Australia's The Creptter Children premiere 'Asleep With Your Devil' in full; out now on Imminence Records
Australian gothic / industrial hard rock outfit The Creptter Children has premiered their label debut in full. Asleep With Your Devil EP features five tracks, with one being a new version of their 2016 single "Watching You," and is out today on Imminence Records.
"Asleep With Your Devil to me is just the beginning of oeuvre and artistic expression that will follow. This new EP offers fans a tantalising sample of the direction The Creptter Children’s musical journey will take them too in the future. After spending many long nights working very hard in the studio on this EP, I was quite pleased to hear the end result. As an artist I can be my own worse critic and will always pick out my flaws. However, I can say I was rather content with the final product and look forward to the next endeavour. My mind never sleeps and I ‘am putting together new song ideas as we speak.” - Iballa Chantelle (Vocalist)
The Creptter Children are a gothic / industrial hard rock band currently based in Melbourne, Australia. They originated from Perth in 2006 by founding members Iballa Chantelle (vocals / guitars) and N8oR (guitars / synth). They released their debut album, entitled Possessed, back in 2010 before touring in the US during 2011. Shortly thereafter they took a hiatus before reappearing in 2016 and quickly catching the attention of American label Imminence Records. They announced their signing with the release of their “Watching You” music video on Halloween of that year.
Renowned for their catchy hooks and dark fashion sense, which stem from the dark and twisted mind of Iballa Chantelle, the band brings to their fans (also known as “Freaks”) her message of creativity, open mindedness, and positive reflection towards spirituality and the supernatural. With influences from Behemoth, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie while being endorsed by Ibanez Guitars and Vampress Fashion, The Creptter Children are ready to take 2018 by storm with a new EP and a label backing them.
