It was around the time the audience started spontaneously mimicking the dance from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video that S.I.C. realized they had struck upon something unique and undeniably catchy.

Originally harkening on their goth/industrial roots, the live version of the band had increasingly grown to accept the nerd culture that was fast enveloping it. It made sense, after all, the band’s first ever performance was at an anime shindig, performing to young adults decked out in cosplay and other geekwear.

Embracing this especially creative environment, members of the band have diversified into other related fields of art, including CyberSteam Studios (a team of artists who create cyberpunk and steampunk-inspired art and accessories sold at anime conventions) as well as incorporating an intriguing laser light and video show into live performances.

From goth rockers to metalheads, candy-ravers to role-players, you can never quite put your finger on where an S.I.C. audience will hail from. It is this variety that truly makes the band so much fun. A musical mix of rave culture with hard rock tendencies and a dash of world elements, S.I.C. stands out with strong potential.

S.I.C. has rocked anime/gaming events and goth nights around the Northeast U.S. since 2007 as both a live band and as DJs. They have performed with national industrial rockers such as Mankind Is Obsolete (LA) and echostream (NY). S.I.C. has also become a sought after remixing entity, working on projects for Baltimore-based Blind With Rain and New York City’s own new wave/synth-rock outfit, Superfortress.

Now under the guidance of producer Isaac Glendening (Cesium_137), S.I.C. is working on their first full-length album at Subversive Sound Studio in Philadelphia (Anders Manga, genCAB, Don’t Ever Speak and more). The highly anticipated debut album can be expected later in 2009.
