DIE ROBOT

Die Robot - technopunk

Die Robot is an electro industrial band from Portland, Oregon. This is future rock in a post-industrial age. Their sound straddles rock and electronic with a wide appeal. Unique, haunting, and romantic, Die Robot is full of angst and soul with the groove of a predatory animal. It all started in the summer of 2012, when former members of Pop Dolls, Vince Christian and Barbie Saint, moved to Portland where they met Angela Johnson. Vince provides powerful vocals and a fierce performance. Barbie's strings are dark and passionate, combining not only bass and guitar, but synthesized leads simultaneously, also playing live keys, producing and intense electronic plus analog soundscapes. A unique sound accomplished with special custom gear designed for Barbie Saint by Retro Mechanical Labs. Angela's rhythms fill the dance floor, and her upright electronic set accentuates an engaging performance.

They have played numerous shows in the Pacific Northwest with incredible turn outs. Die Robot performed with artists like John 5 (Rob Zombie / Marilyn Manson) Conjure One (Front Line Assembly - Delerium) Unter Null, 16Volt, Orgy, Stabbing Westward, Vince Clarke (Depeche Mode, Erasure) David J (Bauhaus, Love and Rockets) Kite, among others.
