Sedition Atlanta and Darker Side of Light Productions are pleased to bring you the DECODE TOUR!
Part band, part machine, the Chicago-based angry robot outfit Cyanotic, has been producing their own hybrid of angry robot music since forming in 2002. Striking balance between synthetic order and frenzied chaos, the band's 2017 release "Tech Noir" serves as a welcome updating of their loving homage to electronic music culture and classic cyberpunk tropes, and a nod to the nightclub featured in The Terminator (1984). The new Cyanotic live show is nothing short of a digitized onslaught of old and new school, with visual media and a cybernetic stage structure. In 2018 Cyanotic is planning a North American tour to coincide with the release of the companion album "Re-Tech" which is scheduled to be released in July 2018.
Cyanotic has travelled and performed on over twenty North American and international concert tours including Cold Waves Festival, Infest Festival and Terminus Festival, and has skillfully shared a stage with the likes of Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Fear Factory, Chemlab, Andrew W.K., Meat Beat Manifesto, and 3Teeth, among others. The machine rockers have had music placed in several television shows and movies including their most recent placement of “Pressure” in Teen Wolf (2011).

FOR ALL THE EMPTINESS
Based in Toronto Canada, for All The Emptiness is the brainchild of singer/composer Jonathan Kaplan. After watching the Apoptygma Berzerk live DVD APBL98 and meeting frontman Stephan Groth in the audience after a show it became clear how much music influenced him and how obvious it was that music can contribute to a better world.
