Skinny Puppy pride themselves on being the soundtrack to your nightmares. Since forming in Vancouver in 1982, the legendary band have gained and lost members (one of which was Bill Leeb, whose band Front Line Assembly have joined Skinny Puppy as a main supporting act on their current tour), as well as collaborated with renowned industrial artists such as Genesis P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV) and Al Jourgensen (Ministry). Through it all, though, they have maintained their status as a cutting-edge sonic leviathan.

While many people associate vocalist/lyricist Nivek Ogre (née Kevin Ogilvie) as the face of Skinny Puppy because of his grotesque and surreal performance antics, cEvin Key (born Kevin Crompton) has been behind the keyboards, guitars and drums in the studio and onstage for the past 30 years. In addition to performing with his numerous side projects, he composes music, is a sound designer and audio engineer, and tours the world as a DJ. Plus, he runs his own record label, Subconscious Records.
