COMING: WINTER 2014 on Mars Needs Music.

 

After 10 full-length studio albums and two decades of being called a "Gothic" musician, Aurelio Voltaire finally makes a Gothic album! 

"In truth, it's a tour of all of the kinds of music I loved growing up. There are songs on this album that are Gothrock, Deathrock, New Wave, New Romantic, Darkwave and Dark folk. It's the album I've always wanted to make. Some of the songs were written as far back as 1984 when I was 17 years-old!" Aurelio Voltaire
