Reliably informed

Think Eurotrash, Sisters of Mercy, Soft Cell and of ALL the synthesisers. If this appeals to you then State Mandated Entertainment presents a line-up at Star & Shadow Cinema on Saturday 18th June that not only compliments one another but is an absolute must for fans of dark synth joy.

Serving as the Newcastle debut for the headlining solo artist, Soft Riot has accrued 25 years of musical experience and has established himself as an acclaimed artist, with a catalogue of seven albums to pull from for your auditory pleasure. Elements of synth-based film soundtracks and psychedelic synth pop is fused with a black humour that’ll tantalise and titillate.

Local support comes from Vigilance State, whose dystopian dissonance offers a different kind of darkwave-fuelled fun, while Holy Braille’s stark and dark soundtrack is as visceral as they come.

And, while both supports compliment the headliner, they bring their own unique sounds to the table; this night should entertain anyone who’s synth head – got to be using MOOGs right?

Soft Riot, Vigilance State and Holy Braille play Star & Shadow Cinema, Newcastle on Saturday 18th June.
