Scarlet Architect, Chicago's seminal 80s minimal synth pop band will be performing live in Chicago, their "hometown", Saturday, April 9th at Cobra Lounge, 235 N. Ashland. Local synth band, Replicant, will open for the trio. S.A.'s set will include most of their original 80s repertoire plus a number of new tracks and updated versions of older tunes that they chose not to include on the Eternal Return LP (Genetic Records). The band now has more than enough tracks for a new LP/CD project and will set about getting this new material mastered sometime this Summer, 2016.
S.A. will be appearing on Zurich's Balcony TV September 23, 2015 and playing their first live concert in over 30 years following the taping for the TV program. WE are currently sponsoring an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign ( please copy and paste link at bottom of blog) to cover the cost of Doug Chamberlin's portion of the trip. He is a disabled artist and on a very fixed income. He needs, and the band needs, your help urgently so that they can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Additional dates are being booked for this brief tour. Please act now and contribute so that S.A. can make these gigs and fulfill their destiny as one of the U.S.'s successful synthpop exports to Europe, the home of synthpop! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/scarlet-architect-eternal-return-mini-euro-tour/x/11413184#/story
Chicago DJ/Videographer Glenn Russell's video created for Scarlet Architect's new song, "Joan of Arc" will debut Friday, August 8th, 2014 on YouTube and elsewhere @ online locations: www.facebook.com/scarletarchitect2014/app_2405167945
Scarlet Architect has completed its negotiations over a contract to release its long awaited LP. "Eternal Return" with Genetic Music, a German independent label. Genetic expects to release the collection of SA's most popular 80s tunes sometime in Autumn of 2014. Doug ChamBerlin of Scarlet Architect said," We couldn't be happier signing with Genetic! Our initial inspiration for our band came from a German band, Kraftwerk. It's like being welcomed into the family after a long courtship."
Here's a little bit of architecture to bring along. Some old, some new and take heart...there's a lot more to come! Enjoy!
