Missionary Promotions, Assemblage 23 After-Party

Portland favorite Assemblage 23 returning with Espermachine!

Assemblage 23 2012 Missionary Promotions

On June 1st Tom Shear began shipping out preorders for Assemblage 23’s finest work to date, the full length release “Bruise”. Bruise is the A23 album that truly shows what this man is capable of.

One thing I’ve come to appreciate about the last few Assemblage albums is Tom’s genuine connection with his audience. Assemblage 23 again connects our desire to dance AND think.

September 30th at the Fez Ballroom is our time to dance.

Paul Seegers, whom we all know and love, will be pressing the keys once again and this year, on live percussion, will be a man who is no stranger to the beat. Casey Baldwin of Sebastian Komor’s “Komor Kommando!” Just put Mr. Shear on the mic and we’ve got a bloody awesome show.

The 2012 Bruise Tour brings with it Espermachine.  They’ve poked at a Portland show before but I’m really happy that this tour will be their introduction to us.  The timing couldn’t be better as Espermachine has just released their first full length album “Dying Life” on Tom’s own label 23db Records.

Assemblage 23, always a fantastic show, always a Portland favorite.

Here is how you can secure some tickets.  The much preferred method is to purchase directly from your promoters by using the Paypal option below.  Select quantity, hit the pay button and VERY IMPORTANT…you must add the first and last names of each ticketholder.  You do this by adding a “note to seller”.  Got it?


2nd option is to buy directly from Derek of Corrosion Records, DJ Ghouluantic, Shadowplay, etc. Chase him down and you’ll get physical ticket.  That can be cool when you’re trying to impress someone.  Hey baby look what I just got us by tackling this man…..shaa-wing!

3rd-Buy them in person at the wonderful Wells and Verne establishment.

buy from Ticketswest

4th. would be to purchase from or any ticketswest outlet.  Yep the biggest handling fees but might be the easiest for those who couldn’t figure out one the first 2 options.  No worries, we won’t tell anyone.

September 30th at The Fez Ballroom, 316 SW 11th, Portland, OR 97214.  Doors at 8:00pm, must be 21+ with ID because liquor will be served! $20 at the door (day of show) $15 advance purchase.

German act DE/VISION (Metropolis Records) are true synthpop icons, having celebrated their 20 year anniversary in 2008, they continue to press forward as innovators and torchbearers for the electronic music movement. Their last 2 visits to the USA (in 2008 and in 2009)  proved that their momentum is as strong as ever and with a new album “Popgefahr” released in March, 2010, they’re ready to return to North America for the “Legends of Synthpop” tour.

MESH. It’s been over 10 years since the UK-based MESH (Metropolis Records) last visited the US and it’s high time they returned! After releasing the limited edition single for Only Better in October of 2009, the band followed it up with a European tour and a brand new album, A Perfect Solution. A second single, How Long, was released in march 2010 and an all-remix album is set for release in January, 2011. MESH look forward to their long-awaited return to the US and are excited to reconnect with their MESH-starved fans on the “Legends Of Synthpop” Tour.

IRIS – originally from  Texas – is the leading US modern synthpop act.  After several albums (the last one “Wrath” in 2005  as well as a DVD combined-EP called “Hydra” in 2008) Andrew Sega and Reagan Jones have just released their new album “Blacklight”  on September 3rd  (DIFFUSION RECORDS). They are ready  to take “Blacklight” to the masses on the “Legends Of Synthpop” tour

Missionary Promotions, Das Ich

Das Ich is one of Germany’s most famous Gothic bands. Established in 1989 by Stefan Ackermann (vocals, lyrics) and Bruno Kramm (music, instruments), the band looks back on a career that spans more than 15 years in music bizz with countless concerts in all corners of the world and releases that were as ground-breaking and praised by Gothic audience as they were shocking to the conservatives and narrow minded.
Always re-inventing and surprising, the interest in Kramm’s fascinating soundscapes and Ackermann’s dark, haunting singings is unbroken.  Das Ich are currently on tour supporting their brand new work…Koma.

Covenant brings “Modern Ruin” to Portland!

Missionary Promotions, CovenantAs the decade closes, Covenant embarks on yet a new direction as they place the final finishing touches on their seventh studio album, Modern Ruin. At one atmospheric and anthemic, deeply disconnected and yet deeply personal, Modern Ruin is seemingly an apt title for the maelstrom of beats and emotion it contains. Modern Ruin also marks another first for the band—the debut of now permanent member Daniel Myer’s songwriting collaborations. Where it will take the band is unclear, but one thing is certain—it will be no smaller than the world.   -Covenant Official Website


The Gothic Cruise has brought them to America, why not do a few special shows while you’ve got the whole gang here, right?  Right!
