Hello, Wax Trax! people,

For all our U.S. folks, we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. Now the fun officially begins as we slide into December and before you know it…Hello 2016!



That’s right, now’s your chance to take advantage of our one day holiday sale. We don’t care if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Devil day, Front 242 Worship day, or whatever…’TIS THE SEASON!
BIG discount on ALL clothing.  Pailhead, Pig, FLA, FRONT 242, LAIBACH, etc… now you can get your shopping out of the way for that special Wax Trax! fan (or just look good yourself by getting some fancy duds at a deep discount!)

The details= WAX TRAX! Online Store on Monday 11/30/15. Enter DREAMNEEDLE as a promo code at checkout and get 25% all clothing.

But remember…NOTHING STAYS (On Sale past Monday) Ugh, sorry


As some of you Kickstarter backers already know, we’ve been busy this month as gifts from our Kickstarter campaign have been hitting the postal stream. We will be sending out an official Kickstarter update this upcoming week to summarize the campaign so all you backers
will have a better idea of where we are with fulfillment and what still is expected.


As we mentioned recently, a couple of Wax Trax! all stars are still out on the road.

Our Sinister friends in MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT will be riding the mindway in the US for another 2 weeks. The shows have been fabulous with Groovie Mann and Company in classic form. The Electric Messiah Tour will conclude in Texas on December 13th. Better get on the stick boy…After that,  the days of swine and roses will be over!

Also-We were lucky to be able to check out Paul Barker on his latest stint with Puscifer as their production came through Chicago. Part concert… part theater… part full nelson body slams in the wrestling ring. All I can say is I never imagined Mr. Barker would look so dignified in a luchador mask…This show is highly recommended!



Yep-As many of you learned earlier this week, new UNDERWORLD album and UK tour this Spring! Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future will be released this March and can be pre-ordered here.


I’ve said this before, but Underworld will always hold a very special place in my heart. Besides being an undeniable classic in the Wax Trax! catalog, the band was one of the last artists signed by my dad before he passed. For a lot of us, they represented the last of an era as the direction and tone of the label shifted at the time. We cannot wait to hear the new release and hopefully a US tour won’t be far behind.

That’s it for now. Official Kickstarter update will be coming next for all of you who have helped us with the movie campaign so keep your eyes peeled for that. Also, whether it’s this Monday or not, keep checking back to the WAX TRAX! RECORDS online store for updated WAX TRAX! merch and rarities during the holiday season!

As always, join the group conversation on Facebook at waxtraxchicago, our WAX TRAX! twitter page for #waxtraxfriday, and on the Wax Trax! instagram for visuals from inside WTHQ.






Hello everyone,
Hope you’re all having a great Summer so far!

I just wanted to check in and pass along what’s been happening these days.

Well, the Documentary is still humming along quite nicely. We hope to have all the interviews done this year and start the fun part of editing. There isn’t a firm release date yet, but like I said before, this is very different than the Retrospectacle project in that we have our hands in every part of it (ha-I’m sure the directing team wishes we didn’t!)..We will not let you down.
Thanks to all of you who have emailed with great stories and support.


Okay, onto some exciting music news. We want to tell you all about the outstanding new collaboration…

Chris and Paul have been writing together again and if that wasn’t enough, they’ve joined forces with heavyweights, Lee Popa, Toby Wright, Brian Diemar, Janne Jarvis, Chris Rose, Hoss Wright, as well as some very special guests. I strongly suggest you check out their demo songs so far on Soundcloud.

Trust us, if you’re a fan of the early work…you will not be disappointed!


Rumor has it that there is a limited US tour for Clock DVA this September in the works. Dates are still being hammered out but it looks like so far, only 4 lucky US cities (sadly not Chicago) will have the privilege to see this pioneering artist in a rare performance…They were always one of my dad’s favorites, and we may just have to jump on a plane to see ’em.
hmm….maybe we could reissue some of the original CDVA merch from the catalog….you just never know ;-)

New merch news…To all of you who beat down our cyber door to get your hands on the Front Line Assembly Caustic Grip shirt…Thank you!


Your response has been unbelievable, and you might be happy about this next FLA batch. The VIRUS reissue and a new one for Wax Trax! …Tactical Neural Implant will be next on the roster! They should be available in our online store late July or August.

That’s it for now. Don’t forget to join the Wax Trax! Facebook page for constant artist and fan input and of course our Twitter feed featuring our fan driven #waxtraxfriday every week.
