Oh, it's coming; it's coming soon! On May 31, 2013, we'll be releasing "reflect << rewind" by Australia's premier Gothic Rock band of the 90's, SUBTERFUGE.
With their mini album "Darkland Awakening" (1994) their only "proper release" they've managed to create anthems of the genre that will reverberate forever. "reflect << rewind" is a comprehensive retrospective of their body of work including all their hits, unreleased songs, demo-tracks, alternative versions and an exciting cover version of ROSETTA STONE's "Six Before Dawn". A multicoloured booklet tells their story in words and pictures. You see: great stuff.
Here's a video teaser:

HEARTS FAIL hail from Texas/USA and have been long time favourites here at STROBELIGHT RECORDS. So we're tremendously proud to announce FIRES IN THE NIGHT, a retrospective overview of the band's rich and intriguing work so far - but also with a powerful promise of things to come. Not only musically: from early diamonds such as "Wishing Well", also featured in our NEW DARK AGE compilation series, to their current EP "...Other Blessings" and a yet unreleased stomper of a song "Victims". But also with its opulent 20 page booklet full of lyrics, pics and info on the band and their history so far.
If you're into melodic Post Punk in the tradition of THE CHAMELEONS, THE SOUND or PINK TURNS BLUE and appreciate related bands such as INTERPOL and THE O CHILDREN, FIRES IN THE NIGHT won't let go of you! It's not often that a band stays true to themselves in the best sense of the word and shows such a degree of variation at the same time, while all the while keeping such a high level of captivating intensity in their work: both lyrically and musically. In other words: great stuff, people!
FIRES IN THE NIGHT will be released in March 2012. You don't wanna miss it!

Grab your crimpers!
90's Gothic Rock. That's a genre, a style of rock, and as such not bound to a certain decade even though it came into being then and hence sort of "hails from there". How incredibly diverse this genre was even in its "own" decade, so to speak, and how it was embedded in its subcultural niche is shown on ANOTHER GIFT FROM GOTH; a double CD full of exciting bands from 15 countries and an abundance of photos, flyers, record covers, buttons, gig set lists and other memorabilia. AGFG is the third part of our ESSENTIALS series and its official release date will be June 17, but we're pretty confident that we'll have it with us at this year's WAVE-GOTIK-TREFFEN in Leipzig. So if you can't wait: come and say hi!
NEWS FROM THE EAST
THE LAST DAYS OF JESUS return with a truly exceptional and great idea: an EP with cover versions of legendary songs from communist Eastern Europe of the 1980's. After countless gigs finally on CD! THE LAST DAYS OF JESUS will play at this year's WAVE-GOTIK-TREFFEN and of course "ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE EAST" will be available there, too. Dont's miss either the gig or this record!

Just two more days, people! On September 10, 2010, we'll release STORM, the brand new stomper of an album by German-British cult band PINK TURNS BLUE. Overdue and desperately awaited.
After having entered the official German Alternative Charts DAC at number 5, PINK TURNS BLUE currently hold position 3, surrounded almost exclusively by electronic acts such as DEINE LAKAIEN or COMBICHRIST and leaving strong players such as EVILS TOY, UNDERWORLD or LEAETHERSTRIP behind. We're happy and congratulate MIC & Co!

1. May 2007
Just in time for their WAVE-GOTIK-TREFFEN gig Magdeburg Post-Punks / Deathrockers ZADERA will have available their new album "Über die Jahre" ("over the years"). After line-up changes and an intense songwriting process their new album is a definite step forward from their 2004 debut album "...something red" while maintaining their trademark freshness. You'll find dancefloor stompers such an "Venom" - known from the NEW DARK AGE vol.4 compilation - as well as melancholic power ballads that make ZADERA such a unique phenomenon in this scene. Officially available in stores from June 15.
Incomparable Progressive-Deathrockers TRAGIC BLACK have just finished recording their highly anticipated follow-up album to their successful "THE DECADENT REQUIEM" debut CD! "THE COLD CARESS" will be released this summer on August 17. Whereas "THE DECADENT REQUIEM" with its wildness was related to the element of fire, "THE COLD CARESS" is the "water"-album: cold, but never lacking power, "THE COLD CARESS" is a modern masterpiece of end-times-Deathrock with tasteful electronic support. With dancefloor smashers such as "Bodies On The Avenue" and more traditional Batcave-hymns such as "Junes Dying" the band around frontman vISION skilfully bridges this scene's origins and the today like noone else! Officially available in stores from August 17.
