Crowdkontrol is going through a few changes. Temper is on leave until the Fall while she bears the brunt of twins. In the mean time Dave will step in for drums, who has helped us out in the past with shows, along with Matt Horton joining CK to do live keys and contribute to the next album.
As Crowdkontrol becomes more drum heavy on live shows and our music becomes more drum influenced. Think EBM/Industrial/Taiko. We are still experimenting, but something of a hybrid is evolving here. We are also in the midst of finding additional drummers before our next performance. We will be releasing some demo songs shortly, so keep checking back.
Lineup for our live shows currently:
Mars - Vocals, drums and samples
Leslie0 - Vocals
Matt Horton - Keys and other sound devices
Dave Caudill - Drums
Thanks to everyone, keep listening.

Crowdkontrol should also be shooting a video in September for one of the upcoming songs on "Child Process" called "Old Machine".
