Our Wollongong album launch will be at the highly regarded 1/4 Inch, a performance series devoted to experimentation in sound and the moving image, presented at Rad Bar, 95A Crown Street, Wollongong, NSW, on the 3rd March 2015, doors at 8.15pm, $5 tickets on the door.
Our line up will feature Matthew Syres and Dirk Kruithof on guitars, special guest Joe Manton on electronics, and Shahane Bekarian on projections for what is sure to be a glitchy yet unique, stunning, cinematic, and synaesthetic journey down the rabbit warren of our darkest musical hearts.
We are supporting French/Cambodian musician LAFIDKI, a sound and vision artist who brings a unique sense of abstract electronics, energy and joy to his deeply experimental psychedelic noise. Another support is yet to be announced.

Forenzics are embarking on our first ever interstate tour in support of this, our fourth studio album, entitled ‘Malign‘, playing 1/4 Inch at Rad Bar in Wollongong on the 3rd March, The Record Crate in Glebe on the 6th March and Make It Up Club at Bar Open in Melbourne on the 10th March.
We’ll be playing with a slightly improvised line-up at each venue but with stalwarts Dirk Kruithof and Matthew Syres on guitars, coupled with Shahane Bekarian’s (RedCell Disorder’s) signature large scale projections, each is sure to be a uniquely stunning, cinematic, synaesthetic journey down the rabbit warren.

A little about the album…
This new album ‘Malign’ was recorded completely live, without overdubs, edits or preconceived music over the space of one day on the 15th June 2012 and features drummer John Wilton, whose subtle yet fiery approach lends the eight tracks of darkly sublime and textured improvisations an openness, clarity and purposefulness previously unmatched in studio recordings from Forenzics. Where previous album ‘Build Ruins’ (released via ‘New Weird Australia’ in 2011) was noisy, chaotic, electronic and dense, ‘Malign’ is subtle and bewitching, spacious, otherworldly and surprisingly listenable whilst still maintaining the band’s signature dark and atmospheric sound.
