Blending influences from the alternative 1980’s new wave movement with current electro sounds, RAZORFADE is reinterpreting alternative electronic music for those with a darker side. Featuring ex-members of SUSPIRIA and IKON, RAZORFADE reveals a dark electronic sound approach whilst still incorporating atmospheric guitar and vocals reminiscent of the pair’s previous projects. Sombre, catchy and danceable anthems share similarities with bands like VNV NATION, CLAN OF XYMOX or yet ASSEMBLAGE 23.
After several years out of the limelight, Mark Tansley returns to form with RAZORFADE - his latest project to date. A pioneer of UK electronic alternative music in the 1990’s, Mark Tansley is best known as the creative brain behind legendary underground band SUSPIRIA and the later side project INTRAVENUS. Spending his time between the UK and Australia, Mark Tansley has paired up with vocalist Clifford Ennis to create RAZORFADE. Best known as the singer for successful 1990’s Australian bands SUBTERFUGE and JERUSALEM SYNDROME, Clifford Ennis is also the former guitarist for internationally acclaimed band IKON. Between them, Mark Tansley and Clifford Ennis have toured extensively, having performed at some of Europe’s largest alternative music festivals, as well as playing at hundreds of venues across Europe, the USA and Australia.
Since forming in 2008, RAZORFADE have released the highly praised 6 track “Liberation” EP, and are currently mixing their forthcoming debut album, to be released on Alfa Matrix, a CD on which the electronic energy of THE PRESETS meets the dark sensibilities of the SISTERS OF MERCY.
