Zwaremachine & I Ya Toyah ‘Code Blue’ Tour Announcement!
Artist – Zwaremachine & I Ya Toyah
Bonus Single – Smile That Killed A Country
Tour – Code Blue
Rousing news from Minneapolis, industrial-based trio, Zwaremachine as they announce, ‘Code Blue’ a co-headliner tour with Polish, electronic/industrialist, I Ya Toyah, which means the dual outfits are set to hit the road March 1st touring America’s mid-west. Zwaremachine is currently engaging in Spring/Summer bookings in the U.S and are also working on fixing more dates in Europe before the end of the year. D.I.Y based, I Ya Toyah is a powerful solo force who is currently based in the city of Chicago, her debut, full-length album titled ‘Code Blue’, which is currently set for tour alongside Zwaremachine, was released back in October 2018 and demonstrates a cathartic intimate insight into inner darkness and self-struggle. The album was shaped by real-life traumatic events in I Ya Toyah’s life as she adroitly channels her story through arresting vocals and emotively haunting electronic synth, groove-laden beats and hypnotizing guitars. Artfully conjuring a moving concoction of submersible sound that creates an enigmatic atmosphere.
Eagerly, Zwaremachine has extracted the first single track ‘Code Blue’ from I Ya Toyah’s album and has focused on creating, in conjunction with the Code Blue tour a bonus single track featuring Mach Fox and I Ya Toyah, titled “Smile That Killed A Country”. This track will be officially released on February 18th, 2019 over on Bandcamp and will also include an extended remix, with the single track being exclusively performed on their tour dates. Zware Bassist D-Bot has worked on the current remix and will be joining them on the road to add that extra dynamic to their already impactful sound. Check out a taster of their tour sounds below.
Zwaremachine’s most recent release was a cranky noise cyber darkwave track titled “Remain Unseen” and can be found on the following link – https://zwaremachine.bandcamp.com This was a single released as a “name your price” item over on Bandcamp on December 10th, 2018; prior to that Zwaremachine’s full-length ‘Be a Light’ album was released on April 11, 2018, which I highly recommend you lock into. In regard to European dates Zware have just confirmed, LIEGE NEW WAVE FESTIVAL in Belgium for September 21st, 2019 and will book more dates in that region also.

Stay attentive and keep up to date with future tour date announcements for the U.S.A & Europe and also the latest music releases from both Zware and I Ya Toyha. Let’s hope they make the UK sometime soon!
In many senses, I am still discovering myself through the complex tapestry in which life continues to weave, gaining unique physical experience in order to aid the progression of my precious spirit, this will continue for the rest of my fated days and my understanding of who I am shall be determined through how I learn to react, act and adapt towards the circumstances I face. I do sincerely hope the span of this life is enough to fully come to terms with the potential of my unique existence, through deep-rooted understanding, compassion, and love, and that I may fully acknowledge the absolute full potential of my existence through the network of others.
Thus far the core of my being has learned through unique experience and individual perspective that I am most certainly a creative soul who takes solace in the truth & liberty of artistic expression. Freedom lays behind the eyes within the evocative realm of one's imagination, transforming originality through individual perspective, this is when my art becomes yours. Inspiring, motivating different modes of expression to overall influence and shape a better world, to help elevate to a higher consciousness. We are part of the great web of life and in this way each and every one of us are interconnected, to create a major shift in consciousness. We must wholeheartedly start to believe in what can be created for the greater good of this world, in my view it is most certainly the power of thought and intention which connect us, no matter how near or how far.
Being understood has always been of paramount importance to me, self-expression is something I have been aware of from a very young age. From my point of view, artistic expression has always been the most liberating and uniting mode. When I am not caught up in life's cogs I love to write poetry, short stories, and shoot photographs. I adore and feed off music, so I highly enjoy capturing the live music scene in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. I also enjoy writing for Uk Entertainments website, Louder than War, as well as run my own music blog www.Revel Rousers.org, Amalgamating my love of music, writing, as well as photographic expression (Music, Landscape, Street, Wedding), which gives me a great sense of creative release, therefore forging a strong sense of purpose in the way of documenting life's remarkable moments.
I find working with creatives within the music industry is wholly inspiring even though at times it can be quite challenging, after all, the greatest realizations and lessons learned are born out of challenges. I figured, seeing as I have a platform for my music reviews, interviews and photography I thought it would be time to create a platform for my creative writing and poetry.....It takes courage to expose oneself through the intimacy of poetry, However, that is how we truly unite and grow in compassion and understanding of each other's true essence.
I am a deep thinker, I understand the power of words and their meanings. I also understand how empowering artistic expression can be. There is a raw truth buried within each original idea combined with a power to help change the world. Artistic expression is forever transforming through interpretation, that is what I mean when I say "When My Art Becomes Yours"
My philosophy is to understand more, in order to love more.......
