Schkeuditzer Kreuz + Holy Braille

14 September 2023 @ 8:00 pm 11:30 pm

New Zealand punk veteran Kieren Hills, now operating as New South Wales-based post-industrial solo project Schkeuditzer Kreuz brings the noise to the UK for the first time – right here in Gateshead at the Black Bull

The live energy of Schkeuditzer Kreuz’s one human and some machines performances is something not to be missed

Support comes from the magnificent HOLY BRAILLE

About Schkeuditzer Kreuz:

A veteran of the Australian and New Zealand punk scene, Kieren began his journey into underground music in New Zealand during the 1980s, before relocating to Australia with riotous Wellington, New Zealand punk rock group S.M.U.T. in 1993. Over the years, he has played in countless underground bands and projects, while based at different times between Australia, New Zealand, and Germany. His other main project for a little over a decade now has been as bassist with Sydney hardcore band Dark Horse, and he is also a member of occasional deathrock/gothic punk outfit Death Church.

Now living in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia, Kieren records as Schkeuditzer Kreuz in a cabin that he built in the woods. His album Isolated and Alone presents an often harrowingly bleak and raw response to the present global climate – dealing with themes around fear, mistrust, and paranoia; isolation and marginalisation; and (as with the album’s previous video single, Broken), mental illness and suicide. Originally scheduled for an October 2021 release, the first vinyl pressing of the Isolated and Alone LP at a plant in China was destroyed by local authorities, who deemed it unfit for export due to its alleged subversive content; forcing the release back to December while the album was re-pressed.


HOLY BRAILLE is a DarkWave soundtrack to Holy life.
Full of emotional turmoil, stark, dark and goth!
All tracks are random in electronic sounds and conquer whatever synths are at hand at the time of creation.
