KOMMUNITY FK was created by Patrik Mata in 1978 in the midst of the LA punk explosion. Patrik's new musical genre became a cross between post punk against a darker gloom that became the genesis

of American gothik/deathrock. The original pronunciation of the band was "Kommunity Fuck" (the FCC's top of the 'seven words not to be uttered' list at that time). Changed by Mata to "Kommunity FK" so promoters back in the day had no problem placing the headliners name on their marquees. Mata's influences of Burroughs,

Cocteau, Dali, and early Bowie were woven through a dreamy musical side combined with experimental synthesized art punk. Kommunity FK's beginnings were raw & Mata's visionary soundscapes were all his own.

KOMMUNITY FK performs internationally and releases new material in the same tradition as they always have since 1978...

-----------------------------

Formed in 2012, THE BELLWETHER SYNDICATE is fronted by veteran artist William Faith (formerly of Faith and the Muse, Christian Death, Mephisto Walz, Shadow Project, Sex Gang Children, The March Violets, etc.), and Sarah Rose Faith (aka internationally renown DJ Scary Lady Sarah).

While the studio recordings are made by William and Sarah alone, the live lineup includes Paul Sin (bass), Philly Peroxide (keyboards/percussion) and William’s long-time bandmate and drummer Stevyn Grey.

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 on November 2, 2018, ’Republik’ is an alluring piece of glam noir, which entered the German alternative charts (DAC) at #16. 2018 also saw THE BELLWETHER SYNDICATE touring the US/Canada supporting darkwave pioneers Clan Of Xymox (with a second leg of the tour planned to follow in November of 2019) and the band have just returned from a wildly successful return performance at the Wave-Gotik-Treffen in Leipzig, Germany in June.

autumn’s music sounds as fresh as ever... underlin(ing) the dark emotional underbelly of alternative music, finding a sweet spot between post-punk, ethereal wave, and shimmery goth rock." - Big Takeover Magazine

Between the lost promises of summer and the bitter austerity of winter lives the time between; the shorter, pallid days, the dying leaves, the melancholic reflection of time as it passes… This pensive time between has been evoked and pondered in the words of poets ranging from Yeats to Keats, and once again it finds sublime expression in the lush, passionate, melodic, dark pop of autumn.

autumn is Julie Plante (vocals), Jeff Leyda (bass), and Neil McKay (guitars). Forming in Minneapolis in 1994, autumn has always sought to create melodies that get the listener to feel something deeply, that have the ability to haunt you in some way after the fact. The band released two albums on Tess Records - the hating tree (1996) and return to the breath (1999), with accompanying tours in support of each album before taking an extended hiatus.

2018 saw the release of chandelier, the band’s first full album release in 19 years, produced by William Faith and released on Chicago’s Sett Records. This was followed by tour dates supporting Clan of Xymox in the U.S., as well as a full U.S. tour on their own nefore heading over to Germany to perform at the legendary Wave-Gotik-Treffen festival in Leipzig, where the band performed a powerful set to an adoring, packed house.
