Biography

With its transportive mix of mood, grunge and electrorock, SoCal-based band The Anix is releasing its second full-length record, SLEEPWALKER, on August 30, 2011 via Cleopatra Records. The two-disc package includes twelve original tracks and nine remixes.

Known for sonically massive choruses and constrained electronic verses, The Anix consists of brothers Brandon (singer/guitarist) and Logan Smith (drummer) and keyboardist/guitarist Chris Dinger. The trio often draws from the worlds in graphic novels and the music of NIN, The Cure and Muse. But with SLEEPWALKER, the inspirations were a little different. Explains Brandon, “For this album we wanted to really explore our cinematic influences first, then pull from our musical influences. I wanted the record to sound like a soundtrack to movies like “The Crow” or “The Dark Knight.” The bands we were listening to at the time that also helped influence us were Innerpartysystem, Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Justice, 30 Seconds to Mars, Filter and The Faint.”

SLEEPWALKER was produced by Brandon, Chris Lietz and Jurgen Engler, founder of Die Krupps, the groundbreaking German industrial rock band. He connected with The Anix at SXSW 2010, and that resulted in a darker, more layer sound which included programmed drums on top of live drums, and additional sampling. Brandon also recorded keyboards in Stephan Groth’s “analog synthesizer laboratory” in Norway.

    @Nordschein: That's because Last.fm's artist/band uploaded pictures overrule the other ones, even if the voting is low for that picture.. not very democratic. :)

    Does anyone have the real cover images of the demo albums "Double Zero", "Prototype", "A Division Of You" and "Digital Rock"? I have the artwork for "Digital Rock" and "A Division Of You" But the quality is so low it looks lame in itunes.

    best songs were from the early days anyways. sad that they have a whole legion of new fans that dont even know songs like illusion of time or sometimes. etc. and everyone only knows of the dumbed down versions of this game and other greats. sad.

    wow didnt expect a remix to be the top played track. i guess that just shows how dubstep infected the whole music scene is. btw im not saying that i dont like the remix but they deserve way more credit for their music!! at least it gets their name out there..

    эксперт в треде? расскажи-ка нам побольше об этом) особенно о том как чертовски "непохожи" последние 2 альбома на 30СТМ. блин да они сами говорили в интервью что джаред сотоварищи были одним из основных источников вдохновения. ты так это воспринимаешь, как-будто это плохо. они же не плагиатят, просто пару фишек переняли

    народ слишком мало музла переслушал, раз сравнивают их с 30STM разные группы, разная музыка, разные вокалы, имхо бэнд очень хорош^^
