New from Grrr Records, Photoside Cafe bursts onto the music scene with their debut album The Beauty of Innocence Remains. Photoside Cafe blends violin and acoustic guitar with driving rock rhythms and edgy electric guitar creating a unique and aggressive sound with lyrics that celebrate hope and faith in the midst of the gritty reality of life.


Leper’s music is old-school romantic goth rock, yet bandmaster Skot Shaw takes an eclectic approach to song writing that is not bound by genre definition. While generally exuding the shadowy, emotional spookiness that defines a goth band, Leper’s creativity and inspiration are drawn from many different influences, from dark new wave to industrial.
