    Default WTII Records Minifest 2 in June!!!

    2011 is going to be a huge year for WTII Records....first we finally signed a major distro deal to get our releases just about anywhere physical and digital releases can be found, next we signed Method Cell for North american release (out in march)....we have 2 more announcements to make about new bands that we have just signed in the next few weeks and most importantly we are proud to bring you this news!

    2011 is our 10 year anniversary of WTII Records and also the 5th anniversary of the WTII Records "Live Sunday Showcases" so we decided to do something big.... We are going to throw a 4 day festival from june 9th-june 12th with over 25+ bands performing!! I am not ready to let you guys know the entire days lineups nor to give away the headliners yet but I'll let you know a few things to whet your appetite...

    We're going to make this festival very affordable including $40 for a 4 day pass or $18 a day individually. I think that in this current economy it would be irresponsible of us to want to charge $30-50 a day for a festival...We want this priced so that everyone can afford to come to it...also it will be very limited as the venue we have chosen only holds 500 people to make the event more intimate (only 250 passes will be sold though)

    I'll give away 6 of the bands right now as three have already been leaked and then add a few more every couple of days...
    The Gothsicles (from Chicago on WTII Records)
    Mind Flux Funeral (from Chicago on Bit Riot records)
    Rein[forced] (from Pitts on tba label)
    Illusion of Safety (on Complacency, Die Stadt, Staalplaat records)
    Null Device (from Wis on Nilaihah records)
    AimOniA (from Ohio)

    more news and bands soon!!!

    Oops sorry about that yes it will be in Chicago from 9th-june 12th......The 9th will be a "pre-party/meet and greet" with 3 bands playing and then friday-sunday is when the real festival starts....also we will be setting up after parties that run til 5 am with special guest djs from some of the more well known bands that come out of the midwest....stay tuned for more news soon


    As promised, I will release a few more names every couple of days as to who else is joining the WTII Records festival lineup in june. I'm starting to get bombarded with emails over everyone's excitement over the idea of another North American festival so I'll even give out the name of one of the seven "co-headliners"

    so here's a couple of more names for you:

    Nolongerhuman (from Oregon on Cop International)
    the long awaited return of PTI (who will re-unite for this festival)(from Chicago on WTII)!!!

    and as one of the 7 co-headliners we are proud to bring you:
    Chris Connelly (ex-member of Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface, Murder Inc, Damage Manual, Finitribe, etc etc)

    more names and info to come!!!

    Okay well it's been a few days since I last gave away any of the WTII Records Minifest 2 line-up so here are a few more (oh don't worry we are still keeping some of the big names a secret)

    Lady Parasyte (from chicago on MachineKunt records)
    I:scintilla (from chicago on Alfa-Matix)

    and one of the 7 co-Headliners as well
    Defcon (from Chicago on BitRiot records)



    Here are also some the the dj's that we will be bringing in!!


    Don Anderson (from Pittsburgh and the band Terror Firma Sky)
    Dan Guenther (from arizona and the band Blind Faith and Envy)
    Scary Lady Sarah (from Chicago)

    Complete ticket/pass and festival info will be made available soon but again only a limited number of the special priced 4 day $40 passes will be made available so plan ahead and scoop them up quickly. The venue holds 500 people and you know they are going to sell out as this is going to be quite the party!! The single day tickets will be $8 for the thursday and $18 for each of the other three nights so look at the savings you will be getting!! DON'T miss out!!

    Couldn't get tickets for the WaxTrax retrospectacle because they sold out in less than a day? Don't miss this event as well! The 4 day passes for only $40 are now on sale!! But get them quickly as there will only be 250 of these specially priced passes available....get them here now:

    http://www.wtiirecords.com/releases/...pid...=wtii100

    individual tickets will be available April 1st but save yourself a good amount of money by grabbing a 4 day pass and don't forget that the venue only holds 500 people so plan accordingly!

    Well here is a good news/bad news update about the festival:

    First the good news:

    We are very proud to announce the name of the "tba" co-headlining band that everyone has been wondering about and it is no other than: Vancouver's Unit:187

    Unit 187 (also known as Unit:187) was formed in Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver industrial scene influences such as Front Line Assembly and Skinny Puppy helped guide the band to write their first self titled studio album which was released by 21st Circuitry in 1995. In 1998, the band's second album Loaded, produced by Devin Townsend gained critical acclaim with several of the songs becoming international favorites on the industrial music charts. In 1999, 21st Circuitry Records collapsed, and left the band to find a new home for their music. In 2001, 187 released Capital Punishment on their new label, COP International. Mixes by Ken 'Hiwatt' Marshall and Anthony Valcic made the album standout as a the band's best to date and cemented their unique deep electronic sound as something apart from the ordinary, according to critics.

    Unit 187 released their fourth studio album, Out For Blood, at the end of October 2010 with producer Chris Peterson.



    Now on to the bad news, I was just informed that the venue where the Festival is to be held, The Abbey Pub, had a age licence change and it is now 21 and older and it is unfortunately no longer a 18+ venue. Our apologies to everyone for the confusion as I know there were a lot of our younger friends who were really looking forward to seeing this special 4 day event. If you are under 21 years of age and purchased passes a full refund will be made available to you.

    .....speaking of the 4 day passes though we have already sold through 10% of the limited 4 day pass. Don't wait too much longer and have the specially priced passes run out. The venue holds 500 people but we will only be selling 250 passes. The single day tickets will be available near the end of March for those of you who miss out on the opportunity to save some money by grabbing the passes now (and details soon but there may be some additional benefits when it comes to the afterparties if you have the passes as well)

    Passes can be purchased here and will be mailed out around mid-march:
    http://www.wtiirecords.com/releases/...hp?pid=wtii100

    Single day tickets prices will be as follows and will be available through the Abbey Pub website:
    Thursday June 9th $8
    Friday June 10th $18
    Saturday June 11th $18
    Sunday June 12th $18


    More news soon on Vendors, Dj's, Afterparties, Tee Shirts and more soon!
