“Industrial Dance is a bit like Germans playing Basketball except for it’s not a sport.” I asked our Facebook crew some days ago, whether they had any idea what that could remotely mean. I think except for Faderhead no one really got my point, so I feel like I should give you all a ride […]

                Tomorrow we have the chance to finally get rid of GOD and finally end his totalitarian rule. We can restore democracy and once and for all free ourself from 5000 years of theocratic oppression. But how can we do that and finally kill GOD? We need to […]

Some asked when we are going to start writing a new Album. The answer is: Now. — straftanz (@straftanz) September 5, 2012 No more ranting. No more uniforms. No more fake industrial vs. real industrial. No more stories about this year’s glorious moments. It’s time for a new adventure, and it started last month when my friend […]

„I do not understand how some people can be so vociferously critical of one over the other when they are essentially the same thing.

The experiment was highly effective: Post a  Myspace picture circa 2009 and ask people whether they are annoyed by the Cyber Goth youngsters depicted. The fact that one of the two people in the photo is actually […]

I was astonished. I didn’t really expect anything to happen, as the idea for this was very much a shot in the dark and felt pretty much far out. On the far out part we were actually wrong. After we asked people to apply for an internship at our project two weeks ago, we got […]

    This is not a message to the uniform fetishists. I do understand all of that. It’s not my cup of tea, but your love of stylish Hugo Boss stuff is somewhat understandable. That’s all sexy. We are friends. This is a message to people trying to make their band to appear more “industrial” […]
