Shiv-r
Hard-hitting yet elegant, SHIV-R is the monstrously seductive project of Australian-born musicians Pete Crane and Ben Lee Bulig. The band forge a unique aural and visual aesthetic, creating a world of fear, aggression and self-expression to confront the shadows within ourselves.

In 2010, SHIV-R’s debut album “Hold My Hand” established the band as a new industrial force, fueled by harsh electronics and encompassed by haunting, neoclassical sonic tendrils, with hits such as “Parasite” and “The End” becoming clubfloor staples the world over. In 2011, the 2nd full-length album “This World Erase” extended the band’s sonic arsenal with the dramatic, depth-charged groove of “Incision”, the slow, grinding dirge of “This Fix” and a more evolved lyrical approach attacking themes such as nihilism, the romanticisation of abuse and above all waging a war on apathy. The band’s provocative live show has also been hitting festival stages worldwide including Kinetik (CA), Infest (UK), Summer Darkness (NL) and Nocturnal Culture Night (DE).

Now, SHIV-R return with a new EP entitled “Shadow Between Worlds”. Through 5 brand new tracks including collaborations with fellow harsh provocateurs Surgyn and industrial brothers-in-arms AR12, the band continue to explore the space between the explosively energetic and the emotively captivating. The EP also includes a fistful of high-powered remixes by Noisuf-X, SAM, Skyla Vertex, Distorted Memory and Sigue Sigue Sputnik electronic. Following on from “This World Erase”‘s themes of rejecting and destroying the world with which we are presented, the new EP explores an existence without the gilded trappings of an apathetic society. A void of creation; a Shadow Between Worlds.
