This special tribute compilation is titled “Love Notes to a Velvet Apocalypse” and will feature a wide range of various artists and genres from around the world, such as post-punk, industrial, ambient and experimental. It’s not the first time that Coitus Interruptus Productions has gone into tribute modus. The label released 3 tribute compilations already for artists such as Fad Gadget (released through Cleopatra Records), Cabaret Voltaire (released through Metropolis Records) and Klinik/Dive and ABC (released through Coitus Interruptus Productions). Auricle Media has been behind several large scale industrial music compilations as well, and is currently the marketing branch of the Crunch Pod Label based out of Los Angeles.
