Hailing from Regina SK, Canada, comes The Rabid Whole. Creating a hybrid of electronic, rock and industrial sounds and armed with a cutting-edge live performance, the band is ready to unleash its arsenal on audiences around the globe.
Having met as strangers in 2007, TRW combines the talents of vocalist/guitarist Andreas Weiss, keyboardist Sheenah Ko, lead guitarist George Radutu and drummer Alex Ready and fuses them into a powerful unit. After a year of writing, playing shows and recording, The Rabid Whole self-released their first full-length album, Autraumaton (produced by Karl Schubach of Misery Signals). The success of Autraumaton grabbed the attention of many labels, but the band felt they were best suited with the Vancouver-based label, Synthetic Sounds (SNFU, Left Spine Down). Since signing with Synthetic, TRW has been busy with the release of a mastered version of Autraumaton in 2009 with the help of Shaun Thingvold (Skinny Puppy/Strapping Young Lad/k-os) and the album has since been distributed across Canada and the USA (Sonic Unyon) and Europe (Danse Macabre). From the industrial, machine-gun-chug of Selfish Nature to the symphonic dirge of Distant Blue Skies, Autraumaton's catchy vocal melodies, high energy guitar riffs, screaming synthesizers and contagious beats continuously reward the listener with TRW's electronic rock resonance. Autraumaton spawned the singles All The Same and Evidence of the Fall, which were released to major rock stations in Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia. A music video for All the Same was produced and aired for the first time on Much Music (Canada) in 2009.
In coordination with their debut album, TRW completed a successful launch tour across Canada performing in major cities from as far west as Vancouver and as far east as Montreal, sharing the stage with international acts ranging from Ayria, Apoptygma Berzerk, Hinder and Left Spine Down. Not happy with limiting their live show to just an aural experience, The Rabid Whole ambitiously sets out to create a compelling stage presence, including colourful, electronic-induced visuals and pulsating lights, creating a sensory assault.
With incessant touring, an unstoppable momentum and plans for their sophomore album underway, The Rabid Whole is poised to transmit its sound to the masses.
