VNV Nation is an alternative electronic project led by Ronan Harris in the roles of singer, songwriter and producer.

VNV Nation’s sound blends poetic and thought provoking lyrics with a sound that ranges from melodic dance beats and indie-electronic anthems, to haunting ballads and post-classical soundtrack pieces. The live shows are legendary for their energy and positive emotion, drawing a devoted fanbase from across the musical spectrum to sold out tours and headline appearances at festivals in Europe and North America.

Over the course of the project’s career, VNV Nation has continued to reach new heights, with the last 3 albums charting in the top 10 in Germany. The last album “Noire” (released October 2018) reached #4 in the German Media Control Album Charts.

Mirroring the misery of modern life with their soaring melodies and horror-inspired lyrics and imagery, Canadian cold wave duo TRAITRS have cemented themselves as one ofthe fastest rising bands in goth and post-punk today. Formed in Toronto, Canada in late2015, vocalist/guitarist Shawn Tucker and synth player Sean-Patrick Nolan bonded over a shared fondness for new wave, punk and post-punk, art house horror films and dark electronic music. In April 2016, before they played their first ever live show, TRAITRS released their debut LP Rites and Ritual on the boutique Toronto label Pleasence Records. The duo quickly garnered attention with their critically acclaimed 2018 followup Butcher’s Coin (Pleasence Records, Manic Depression Records, Alchera Visions), coming off the strength of songs like lead single “Thin Flesh”, “The Lovely Wounded” and “The Suffering of Spiders”. TRAITRS established themselves the old school way with relentless touring and scintillating live performances in 17 different countries, including showcases at Wave Gothik Treffen, Castle Party, Extramuralhas, Nocturnal Culture Night, Wavefest, Canadian Music Week and Pop! Montreal. Their breakneck touring schedule and work ethic caught the attention of Schubert Music Publishing’s Thomas Thyssen and Eric Burton, and in October 2020 they announced TRAITRS as the first signing to their brand-new record label Freakwave Records. In November 2021, TRAITRS released the heartrending Horses in the Abattoir, another critically acclaimed LP which was Sonic Seducer’s Album of the Month and topped several “year end” lists. TRAITRS spent the better part of 2022 supporting She Past Away, Lebanon Hanover and She Wants Revenge all across North America. Starting on February 23 in Copenhagen, DK, TRAITRS will open for alternative EDM legends VNV Nation on the European and North American legs of the “Electric Sun Tour”, as well as performing at Amphi Festival, Wave Gothik Treffen and Nocturnal Culture Night.
