Spectral Sound launched the first installment of a new multi-city residency, Death Is Nothing To Fear, on the West Coast this weekend. The bi-monthly events should keep the label’s artists busy as they take turns performing at a series of venues in many major US cities.

Audion (a.k.a. Matthew Dear), who provides Spectral with some of its dirtiest and heaviest 4/4 bangers, kicks things off with a handful of DJ sets set for Part One of the residency. Bodycode then takes over for Part Two with a live PA set. It’s also likely the residency will go overseas sometime in the future.

The tour coincides with the label’s upcoming 12″ series of the same name, which features tracks by new and established Spectral producers. Check record stores (the physical and digital ones!) at the end of this month for “Death Is Nothing To Fear 1,” out February 20 and featuring new, exclusive goods from Audion, Bodycode, and Pär Grindvik.
