[music |new informatik demo material]

hello friends!

it's been a while since there was any battery cage news worthy of mentioning. however, i wanted to let you know that our old single 'ecstasy' is now available for purchase in digital form on Amazon, Emusic, and of course, iTunes.

this was our first single release that we did ourselves prior to signing with metropolis. as it was a very limited run of 250, it ran out pretty quickly, and has not been (legally) available since then. so i'm happy to report that it's now available again.

this single was the club lead for the album 'world wide wasteland' which was released in 2004 on metropolis records. if you liked that record, or that style in general, you might like this as well.


in semi-related news, we are slowly working on a new single. kind of a surprise, but stranger things have happened. i'll update once we get a bit closer on that one. still not working on a full length battery cage album or anything like that, at the moment.

hello friends!

so since battery cage is not currently a functioning recording entity, i've created a new blog to focus more on myself (tyler newman the human being) where i can speak freely, unconstrained by what i call the 'band voice'.

i have always been somewhat uncomfortable speaking publicly while using a 'band unit' focused platform, with regards to my personal life and ideas unrelated to "the band". while this platform will remain operational, interested parties can now find me here: 'tylernewman' to stay current on my various endeavours as an artist.

please and thank you!

this makes it all worth doing [Aug. 29th, 2009|01:30 pm]

as of today i've spent 34 years on this planet. i've seen many things, good and bad.

every once in a while, you get a nice reminder that tells you that you're really doing what you should be.

we got this as a comment on the informatik myspace, and...well, it's just fantastic.

"I just have to say thank you so much for having such wonderful songs. Recently I’ve fallen in love with a girl who loves me back, but she's about to move away for college. We've spent time together and each second with her is like heaven. I want to cherish every moment before she has to go. And when she's not around I get this empty feeling in my stomach. And I’ve been listen to your music non-stop it's like the only thing that makes me feel alright. Songs like ‘A Matter of Time, My True Love, Oblivion V2, At Your Command (Abdication Re-Vision) and Don't Be Afraid’ are helping me get through this hard time. but the one song that fits what’s going on right now perfectly is 'Falling'. I’ll listen to that song at least ten times a day. It is exactly how I feel and describes everything with her. So Thank You so Very Much for your music and beautiful lyrics. It's kinda been like a suicide help line to me. So Thank you, Da5id & Tyler."

Informatik - ARENA now shipping!! [Aug. 19th, 2009|05:57 pm]
[Current Location |the orifice]
[music |gregg kowalsky - through the cardial window]

hey everyone! our latest album 'ARENA' is officially live, and shipping from Metropolis Rec. (US) and Dependent Rec. (EU)!!

da5id and i are both extremely pleased with the album, and are looking forward to our upcoming tour to support the release! we hope that you'll enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.

you can hear a bunch of songs from the new album at our official myspace. definitely let us know what you think of the album!

we saw a great review posted here, and the best pull-quote from the review captures exactly what we were shooting for on ARENA:

"The pop influence that is injected into every song takes them beyond your typical cold, underdeveloped EBM tracks and provides them with a fuller, more human impression."

i couldn't agree more!

more info coming soon...

informatik tour update [Jul. 13th, 2009|07:57 pm]
[Current Location |the house of 8th notes]
[music |dinner is served!]

so, we've decided to do this tour was getting too complicated to try and work out bringing a support act. the contracts and riders are ready, and we'll be contacting promoters immediately.

any promoters that are interested in talking to us, and you haven't heard from us by july 10th, you should contact us directly at "booking at nymphomatik dot com". if you're in a band that has gotten in touch with us, please contact your local promoter directly...the selection of opening bands is now in their hands.

the tour is going to be fucking awesome, and we can't wait to see each and every one of you!!

the tentative schedule and routing can be seen here...

once you've been redirected, click ahead to the month of september...dates are not 100% firm, but basically what we're shooting for. if you don't see your city listed, or on a weird date, get in touch with us via email and we'll work out the details.

definitely interested in hearing from folks in san diego, phoenix, florida and northampton (mr. addam bombb!) about the possibilities.

INFORMATIK 2009 TOUR [Jun. 5th, 2009|10:18 pm]
[Current Location |the blue room]
[music |throbbing gristle - TG24.14 IRCD15 Live at the Filmmakers Coop London]

hey everyone, we are in the initial planning stages of a fall Informatik tour. the first date will be september 10th, starting here in san francisco. the plan is to go out for three weeks, and do as many US cities as we can. the tour will be ending no later than October 4th.

we are looking for a support act that we can take with us as an opening act. genre is not that important. we're looking for someone that makes interesting music, has strong performance skills, and conducts themselves in a professional manner.

if you are a promoter reading this, please drop us a line. we are just starting to get together our contract and routing. we will contact you as soon as all the pieces are in place.

you can reach us by email (tour at nymphomatik dot com).
