DEATHTRIPPERS was formed by the very talented Sasha Raoul in Leeds, UK, 2015. His influences being classic 80s’ gothic rock / psych / electronica / 80s’ indie and shoegaze are evident in their releases to date, the ‘Unity Of Light EP’ (2017) and ‘Disintegrate’ (2018. They have also contributed a couple of tracks to compilations in 2020. Each song is a dancefloor smasher in its own style.

Their latest album ‘Passion & Fire‘ (2022) is a collection of new tracks in a classic UK-style goth rock which is not really a surprise as they hail from Leeds, a city renowned for its gothic music scene in the 80s with bands like The March Violets, The Three Johns, Salvation, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, and The Sisters of Mercy.
