Hello, Wax Trax! people!

We hope you all are doing well and staying relatively sane during this year of the apocalypse.
Our hearts and thoughts are with all of you in the western states battling the fires as well as our friends on the southern coast in the path of the latest hurricane onslaught.

A couple of things to pass along as we barrel into the bowels of Autumn. Hopefully some of this Wax Trax! news will be a needed distraction from world falling apart around us.


For their 30th Anniversary, we have dusted off the master tapes from one of the cornerstone releases on the original roster. Confessions Of A Knife… By MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT will be in print again in all its fabulous glory.
Daisy Chain For Satan, Ride The Mindway, Kooler Than Jesus – They’re all here Waiting for Mommie.
As part of the celebration, we are rolling out a few variant editions that we think you might be interested in.

Just some words of seasoned advice – If you’re eyeing these, we suggest not waiting too long since we expect some of the limited runs to not be around very long.

For those of you looking for a little online music love, we want to point you to a special 3 day event happening this weekend.
Since Chicago’s COLD WAVES FESTIVAL isn’t happening in the traditional sense this year, the festival has created a space online for some unique programming. Archival, concerts, commentary, documentary, etc…Yep – This weekend will have a lot to choose from. And the best part of it, it is absolutely FREE. Just head over to COLD WAVES for all the program details and links to their Twitch channel.

As if that isn’t enough – WAX TRAX! will also be donating the above mentioned THRILL KILL KULT – SILVER MESSIAH EDITION as part of the COLD WAVES memorabilia auction. Lots of other great stuff. We strongly suggest checking it out if you can.

Okay, here is one for the gamers out there. Specifically for all you ANIMAL CROSSING enthusiasts.
Here are a few WAX TRAX QR codes to help class up your island. Why? – Because we love you!

That’s it for now. We hope you can join the WAX TRAX! conversation on our official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Twitch pages.

Please remember to be kind to each other. We are in the middle of a long slog without any clear end in sight. As we all get wound tighter and tighter during this shit storm, it’s easy to lose ourselves. Offering up a little kindness to others in even the most mundane situations can go a long way for everyone.

All your hard work with contacting festivals and letting them know you want to see the film has paid off!

Please join the awesome crew at SOUND UNSEEN FILM FESTIVAL in Minneapolis, MN as they screen the Wax Trax! documentary over multiple nights. We just got word that the first screening sold out pretty quickly but it looks like they have scheduled a third showing of the film.  I wouldn’t delay on picking up tickets for one of these other screenings or you may just be out of luck – You’ve been warned!
