A welcome addition to our annual net.goth gathering, Iris is known for their retro-flavored tunes blended with catchy, yet haunting lyrics. From their debut album, Disconnect and its dance-floor favorite "Annie, Would I Lie to You", to their latest release, Wrath, reviewers have lauded their music using words such as "perfect" and "sublime" to describe their synth-tinged melodies.
Audra's music harks back to the early days of gothic rock enhanced with a longing, heartfelt, ethereal sound. Signed to Projekt Records, bandmates and brothers Brett Helm and Bart Helm, along with drummer J. DeWolf, are the embodiment of Audra's sharp, intense stage presence and well-crafted songs that never fail to mesmerize a crowd.
THE PASSING HOUR
The Passing Hour press-kit consisted of a CD and a handwritten sticky note saying that they would love to be a part of Convergence. The music on that CD demonstrated that they had the chops needed to wow the revelers. Their album, "Forever This Day," and the dark music within, gives one a taste of the potential of this up and coming band, who includes alt.gothic's very own Timly Grae as one of their members.. We are happy to welcome Louisville, KY's The Passing Hour to the C14 lineup.
These acts join Voltaire, The Synthetic Dream Foundation and Faded Sympathy on the stage of Convergence 14 in Tampa's Ybor City. Stay tuned, more bands will be announced in the coming weeks!
Tune in to the C14 website to see the latest in upcoming events at Convergence 14.
