The Birthday Massace first appeared on European stages fiveyears ago, their secret recipe of seductively accessible synthpopand wave peppered with elements of industrial was a huge hit anda breath of fresh air. Thanks in no small part to their energy-ladenlive shows fronted by the whirling maelstrom of Chibi, the Birthday Massacre soon became one of the scene‘s hottest live acts. The band professionally integrate their music into an overall concept of fashion, design and performance. Due to the different talents of the band members from the multimedia sector, there is a unique presence which goes far beyond their excellent CD artworks and the band´s well styled live shows. From the opening tones of „In The Dark“ through to the music-box melody of „Secret“, it’s clear that „Pins And Needles“ is the band‘s best effort to date. Rich, elaborate production by David Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson, Killing Joke) brings out the interplay between the guitars and the rhythm section, the atmospheric keyboards and hibi‘s captivating vocal like never before. Lyrically, „Pins and Needles“ invites us back into The Birthday Massacre’s magical fairyland that their enormous and growing fanbase know and love.
