Canadian cold wave duo TRAITRS conjure nightmarish tapestries of icy cold post-punk synth and guitars, motorik drum machine rhythms with horror-inspired lyrics and imagery. Their modern take on post-punk and relentless touring has cemented TRAITRS as one of the leading new goth bands in the international underground music scene. Formed in Toronto, Canada in late 2015, vocalist/guitarist Shawn Tucker and synth player Sean-Patrick Nolan bonded over a shared fondness for punk, post-punk, electronic music and art house horror films. In April 2016, TRAITRS released their debut cassette tape Rites and Ritual on the boutique Toronto label, Pleasence Records. TRAITRS quickly garnered attention with their critically acclaimed 2018 follow up Butcher’s Coin (Pleasence Records, Manic Depression Records, Alchera Visions). Based on the strength of lead single “Thin Flesh” and live favorites “The Lovely Wounded” and “The Suffering of Spiders”, Butcher’s Coin has proven itself to be one of the seminal goth releases in modern times. TRAITRS have performed in over 20 different countries including showcases at international festivals: Wave Gothik Treffen, Amphi, Castle Party, Extramuralhas, Nocturnal Culture Night, Wavefest, Canadian Music Week and Pop! Montreal. TRAITRS were the first signing to the brand-new record label Freakwave Records and in November 2021, they released Horses in the Abattoir, which was Sonic Seducer’s Album of the Month and topped several “year end” lists. TRAITRS spent the better part of 2022 supporting She Past Away, Lebanon Hanover and She Wants Revenge all across North America. Starting on February 23, 2023 in Copenhagen, DK and ending on April 25 2024 in Santa Ana, California, TRAITRS opened for alternative EDM legends VNV Nation on the “ Electric Sun World Tour ”.

Saint Cyanide
Saint Cyanide makes designer noise. Their music combines dark synth basslines with post-punk guitars and dance floor drums – a reflection of their various influences and inspirations. The result is familiar yet original; a party and a gut punch. They consist of Philip Schorn (synth, percussion), Rick Mitchell (guitar, synth) and Steven Haslam (vocals). They’ve played in a bunch of bands over the years – together and separately – and blah blah blah, etc., etc. Proudly from Philadelphia.
