Happy Halloween Wax Trax! People!
Just a quick note to let you all know what’s been going on at Wax Trax! HQ.
In addition to the phenomenal response we have had since offering INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT on AppleTV, Amazon Prime & Google Play/YouTube, we have also been busy re-stocking the online store with items other than just the Wax Trax! documentary.
In prepping for the holidays, over the next month we will be picking through the Wax Trax! vault and will be replenishing as well as adding new items to waxtrax.com.
To kick off the season, we have started by offering a new TKK shirt and some new Front 242 items. We have also read your emails regarding any extra Record Store Day editions of the soundtrack that we might have laying around. Well – We do have a handful that were held back and now are offering them to you until they are gone. Since the purchase will be through our Wax Trax! mail order, this will be the first time this edition has been offered outside North America.
Just a heads up to all you Ministry fans. As some of you may have heard, Mr. Jourgensen has teamed up with Melodic Virtue to create a new book about his influential band. This fully authorized visual history clocks in at 248 pages and is filled with rare and previously unseen content and commentary that spans Ministry’s entire career. You never know – You might even find one or two Wax Trax! treasures in there.
As a special roll out, Al Jourgensen & Aaron Tanner from Melodic Virtue will be in Chicago on December 13, 2019 for a very special book signing. The event will take place at Asrai Garden in the West Loop (inside the Ace Hotel).
200 copies of the book, including a deluxe edition that includes a 7” of the studio version “(Every Day is) Halloween (Acoustic)” featuring Dave Navarro, will be available for purchase at this event.
That’s not all Al & Company have up their sleeves. Special promotional products and events will be happening at other Chicago locations including Kuma’s Corner, Asrai Garden and a secret party DJ’d by Chicago legend Scary Lady Sarah.

THE DAYS OF TOURS & ROSES
As we mentioned last time, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult are finishing up the second leg of their “In The House Of Strange Affairs” tour. The show is the best they’ve sounded in years and if you happen to be at one of the Chicago dates on Nov. 7 & Nov. 9 , yours truly and the Wax Trax! crew will be helping out Groovie & Buzz by slingin’ shirts in the merch booth. Stop by and say hi!!
THE BIRTHDAY PARTY
Lastly – 2020 will be a big year for Wax Trax! Records. For those keeping count, the label will officially turn 40 next year. Quite a milestone for a company who’s past, present and future story continues to be much stranger than fiction. Hmm, maybe Wax Trax! should do something kind of special and limited to mark the anniversary. – Just sayin’
That’s it for now. As always, visit waxtrax.com for all things Wax Trax! and be sure to join the conversation at our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
