Sometimes an idea is presented to artists they just can't pass up, and this happened with Distancing. Distancing is Klack "Weird Al-ing" their track "Discipline" on the coronavirus tip. Originally written and performed at their CD release performance at Crucible in Madison, WI on March 14th, it was intended as a one-off.
However, upon thinking on it they decided to record an official version, with all proceeds going to the staff at Crucible to help offset (even in some small way) their losses with all of America's venues being shut down for the foreseeable future.
This album, like most all Klack albums, is pay what you want, but know that if you're able to toss us a buck or two for the album you'll be helping out the people that help put on our shows, dance nights, and are all around good people. We're not taking a cent on it.
We're all in this together, so please help if you can. If anything we wanted to provide a gesture to let them know we're thinking of them, just as a lot of us are as fans of live and club music around the world.

Inspired by something silly said by John Freriks.
I don’t know why this just occurred to me, but if I have to live with the knowledge then so do you:
Caustic is not The Clash of industrial...
Caustic is the Chuck Tingle of industrial.
Search your feelings. You know this to be true.
What you do with that pearl of wisdom is your business. Kat Powell
Dark Dance is the best description I can come up with. While driving and thumping, it is not fake-happy as typical dance music. Minor keys and quiet yet clear vocals make this album a treat throughout. It permits both easy background listening, but has plenty to offer for dedicated listening sessions. Vore Aurora has a similar signature, both from LA. oberoniaomnia
