COME ON PILGRIM
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Wax Trax! people here in the US. While sitting around the table with the extended family, we hope your feast is good and the unavoidable conversation with that crazy uncle about politics & religion is even better!
Let’s get to some WAX TRAX! News – shall we?
WE’D LIKE TO THANK THE ACADEMY
Well, it looks like Industrial Accident picked up another festival award. A huge thank you to the fine folks and jury at SOUND UNSEEN – Minneapolis’ premiere film festival. Wax Trax! has won for best film in the 2018 series. Thank you!!
TRAX! OF FINLAND
A big reminder to all our Norsemen and Shield-Maidens out there, INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT is screening again in Finland at Night Visions TOMORROW (Nov. 23) for the final Scandinavian show. TYR!!!!!!
JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE WEST BAY
For those of you who had missed the earlier news blast of West-Coast news. INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT: The Story of Wax Trax! Records will screen ONE time only in SAN FRANCISCO on Dec. 12, 2018. This will be part of ANOTHER HOLE IN THE HEAD Film Festival. San Fransisco’s top underground film festival and part of the legendary DocFest family.
We strongly suggest getting TICKETS soon before they’re gone for good!!
MILE HIGH CLUB
Let’s circle back on this month’s DENVER FILM FESTIVAL. Wow – What an experience! Two sold out screenings with an all star cast of characters for the artist Q&A. The whole weekend was top notch and organized so well. A huge thank you to Groovie Mann, Jello Biafra and Al Jourgensen for taking time to make the trip and be part of the artist panel (As well as the awesome Jello DJ set!). I know it meant a lot for fans to hear the amazing WAX TRAX! stories from the architects themselves.
COME ON LET’S GO SOUNDTRACKIN’
We made an announcement to all our barely crowdfunding homies last month. Well, the cat got out of the bag on a larger scale so we felt it would probably help put a few minds at ease if we made a formal announcement.
The official soundtrack for INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT will indeed be release in April of 2019. We will start taking pre-orders in January at the WAX TRAX! ONLINE STORE. We will divulge many more details including the track listing and special editions at that time.
BLACK WHITE BLU RAY
If you are waiting to get this movie into your collection,
well, I’ve got some GOOD news and some BAD news.
The good news is the documentary will be released on DVD & Blu Ray and VOD the same time as the SOUNDTRACK, with pre-orders of standard and special editions also beginning in January.
The bad news…Well, there is no bad news. I was just fucking with you.
THE TOUR OF RAPE AND HONEY
As some of you know, Ministry’s Land of Rape and Honey officially turned 30 earlier this year. Al, Paul and Chris from the classic line up have recently been interviewed about making the landmark record and the current Ministry line up is on tour starting this month to celebrate the milestone as well as support their new album Amerikkkant.
A complete list of tour dates can be found on the main MINISTRY site. Hmmm…Could a reunion be in the works? We will just have to wait and see.
That’s it for now. You have your orders: Vikings – invade Night Visions on 11/23 , San Franciscans Storm The Studio, 12/12!!
Happy Thanksgiving – Now go eat some turkey!
