17/05/2019: Some new news added to the Band News page. I have had to rely on someone for the recent content on the Band News page, due to me having a hard time funding things at the moment. The site is over a year old and I have to renew it's cost, I have had to spend nearly £200 on tyres for my Toyota Aygo and it's MOT is next week - another £40. Oh, and my wiper needed changing too! All fun! So, if you want more in-depth news and updates, be sure to subscribe to Chris' IAMX Patreon, I am sure it is worth it. For now, apologies that I cannot share much more. I am working on a YouTube channel for this site where I am slowly but surely cleaning and backing up all video content on YouTube. Halfway there! If you have any VHS tapes you want converting, let me know as I have the equipment to do so. Have a great week!
