Aphasia, Riveting, Fiend and Riot are proud to present the return of the head mistress of Fetish affair, Gen of THE GENITORTURERS, with her hard hitting Industrial side-project act GEN-XX. The difference from the Genitorturers you ask? It’s the same domineering Frontwoman, performing with her band stripped down, churning out a near identical set to that which the full genitorture contingent would’ve torn through your ears. Strictly R18, this will be one of the biggest Fetish events of the year mixing crushing beats with theatrical foreplay. Their tour downunder barely even fits in before the Genitorturers play at the biggest Industrial and Gothic event on Earth, the Wave Gotik Treffen… having already toured heavily in the US this year, including Gen singing onstage as part of COMBICHRIST after lending her vocals to the new album “Today we are all Demons”. Gen’s past tours have also seen her play alongside the all-so-familiar HANZEL UND GRETYL and with the likes of KMFDM, 16VOLT, MORTIIS & BELLA MORTE. This will be a must gig for fans of RAMMSTEIN, MINISTRY and SKINNY PUPPY.
This will be a massive event mixing Burlesque, Suspension and Metal acts from around the country with sexually charged Industrial. The night includes the extreme suspension artistry of SKINDEPENDENT (Chch.) after only just having had their wounds heal after their latest bout of Skinfarming down South. The world-renown Burlesque of EVA STRANGELOVE (Well.), who like Gen, has performed onstage with the likes of Combichrist. The fiery and stunning body paint artistry of MISS ANTHROPY. Opening for the Genitoruers is the continuing return of CRIPPLE MR ONION, back from time off spent rebuilding and grinding up the gear for another destructive crack at the New Zealand metal scene. Not to mention, this tour is also supported by Riot Entertainment, one of the main Metal distributors in Australia…
About the Genitorturers:
The Genitorturers are one of the most recognised and genre defying groups of the music underground. Their stage show, known for its piercingly explicit theatrical overtones and a pastiche of fetishes from all dispositions, has become a thing of fringe rock legend. What surprises many is how influential this group is, hardcore fans even tattoo the pin-up image of Gen, the band's singer and master of ceremonies, on their bodies. With a lineup featuring members of Morbid Angel and past collaborations with members of Combichrist, KMFDM & Skinny Puppy, the group maintains a steady touring schedule in the US and abroad.
Described as the world’s sexiest rock band, the Genitorturers cut their teeth, honed their music and live show in the early 90’s Florida “Hardcore” music scene. The vision of front woman Gen, the sound of the Genitorturers combined hardcore punk and metal with industrial electronic elements, and with live shows that became legendary and infamous.
In the wake of the 1993 debut “120 Days of Genitorture” and successive releases, the band has been the subject of over 5,000 pages of articles, and appeared in television features on VH1, Fox News, Hard Copy, HBO’s Real Sex and Playboy TV’s Sexcetera. Gen herself has even been the subject of a British release feature film “Preaching to the Perverted”, a fictional account exploring her life and exploits.

Thanks to everyone who's helped out so far! Joseph, Russ, Az, Leila, Rene, Kate, Bryan, Amber, Sarah, Gareth and of course, Gen and the guys. I would like also like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the change of the Genitorturers into Gen-xx, this was caused as a result of difficulty at the band’s end.
