Die Robot - technopunk
Die Robot is an American Alternative Rock, Electro-Industrial band. 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.
Vince Christian provides powerful vocals and a fierce performance. Barbie Saint's strings are deep and passionate, combining not only bass and guitar, but synthesized leads simultaneously, a unique sound accomplished with special custom gear designed for Barbie by RMLfx. Sean Learn's electronic drums and keys fill the dance floor, and Rosmic Z's guitars accentuate an engaging performance, producing and intense electronic plus analog soundscapes.
Their name came about while watching the first Alien film. Bassist Barbie Saint shrieked “Die Robot!” as Ripley fought Ash the Android, and there they had it. "The four piece is techno punk; Colorful, energetic, a little bit sci-fi and a little bit Mad Max. Post-apocalyptic entertainment you can dance to"
Their New Album "Fanatics" will be release very soon. Two singles from it, "Fanatic" and "Talk City" are now available on all digital platforms plus dozens of live videos are out on their official YouTube channel.
Having released their debut full length album "Technopunk" in 2018 Die Robot has toured around the US with incredible turn outs, and performed with artists like Stabbing Westward, Clan of Xymox, The 69 Eyes, The Birthday Massacre, Orgy, Kontravoid, Conjure One (Front Line Assembly, Delerium), Unter Null, God Module, 16volt, Vince Clarke (Erasure), David J (Bauhaus) John 5 (Rob Zombie), Julien-K, Night Club, Kite, among many others. They are claiming a spot as one of the elite bands in the Electronic Industrial Rock circuit.
In 2019 Die Robot released "Technopunk Remix'd" a collection of new mixes and remixes of Die Robot's album "Technopunk" From hard beat dance techno to symphonic sexy remixes.
All songs Written by Vince Christian and Barbie Saint with remixes by, Antonym, Damascus Knives, Nando, Pyrolizr, Empath of the Empire, Fractured Machines, Neon Distortion, Black Agent, Omniphex, Synth Witch, RMLfx, Particle Son, Diverje and Killer Couture. This has some excellent stompy and clubby remixes that are playing very well at the clubs with some club hits like 10.000 Years Dance til you Die Remix and Virtual Life Antonym Remix among others.
In 2020 the year of the apocalypse, Die Robot played a sold out show at Science Museum Planetarium OMSI, to then go on lockdown for the whole year, just like any other band in the world. Postponing 10 shows and 4 festivals, they released the single "Fanatic" and a series of song remixes videos. They also participated in a few virtual festivals and live streams, including Mechanismus Fest and Blackpool Festival in the UK.
In 2021 with the world starting to go back to normal, Die Robot released the single "Talk City"
Talk City was written with lyrics addressing the spread of misinformation and the resulting distrust that pervades modern society. The song has a very clear message. That is one should not believe everything they read or hear in the media, but rather, research and find the truth.
During the fall of 2021, Die Robot went on tour with DK-Zero, playing some shows in various west coast cities and in 2022 Die Robot played many festivals and shows around the US including Dark Side of the Con, Mechanismus Fest and Absolution Fest. Their New album "Fanatics" will be coming out very soon!
