My release of Mantras from the Division has received honorable acclaim by being included in this list by Ultraculture.
LAB REPORT PERFORMED ITS FIRST LIVE SHOW IN 15 YEARS. LAB REPORT PLAYED THE COLD WAVES BENEFIT, IN CHICAGO AT THE METRO, ON SEPT 25, 2015.
COLD WAVES is a celebration of Chicago’s relationship with industrial music, honoring a fallen brother to raise money and awareness for Hope For the Day, a local charity utilizing music and the arts as a defense mechanism against suicide.
In the summer of 2012, Chicago lost one of its most loved and respected sound engineers and musicians, Jamie Duffy. His work ethic and ingenuity in the local music scene was a gift to many musicians. His abrupt passing had a profound effect on the electronic and metal music communities he meant so much to. In need of healing and hope, we brought 14 bands together for one magical night that year to raise money for Jamies family and say goodbye. But in the end, it was more of an awakening... a rebirth... a breaking wave.
A shamans ritual should not be viewed as a musical performance. The music is directing the spirits more than the audience.
