After 2 years of working their hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan, The Rabid Whole relocated to Toronto in 2011 where they have quickly become a local band to watch by opening for recognized acts Econoline Crush, The Birthday Massacre, Crooked Valentine.
In 2012 the band will see the release of a new CD (April), a North American tour in the spring with a follow up tour in the fall. Two singles with videos will be released.
Credits on the new CD include music industry heavy-hitters Dave 'Rave' Ogilvie (Jakalope, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), Noah Mintz (Broken Social Scene, Death From Above 1979, Danko Jones) and Karl Schubach (Misery Signals).
The Rabid Whole’s debut CD, 'Autraumaton' (produced by Karl Schubach), was released through Vancouver-based industrial and alt-rock label Synthetic Sounds, with distribution in North America (Sonic Unyon) and in Europe (Danse Macabre). 'Autraumaton' spawned the singles "All The Same" and "Evidence of the Fall," which were released to rock stations in Saskatchewan and Quebec. A music video for "All the Same" made the rounds at MuchLoud.
The Rabid Whole later released a remix album, 'Autraumaton Remixed', featuring the likes of mind.in.a.box, Assemblage 23, Angelspit, 16volt, Left Spine Down, Kevvy Mental (Fake Shark-Real Zombie!) and more along with The Rabid Whole's cover of Annie Lennox's "Love Song For a Vampire." Within a week of release, 'Autraumaton Remixed' started to show up on college radio charts throughout Canada.
