We are a musical alchemy, fingering the rabbit hole of performance art. With their toys and voices in and out they create a death- folk, texture-core, organic industrial experience.
The band formed, members Walter Sickert and Edrie say, from the "turmoil and loss" that came after their spouses took a road trip together and never returned. Both Sickert and Edrie have been active in the New England scene for several years, performing in various electronic, goth, metal and experimental bands. Comparing their music to the melodies of Rasputina with the performances of Marilyn Manson and the presence of Johnny Cash, Walter Sickert's shows can range from loud with theatrical visuals to stripped-down acoustic sets. Framing the "violent forests" of their songs around love, betrayal and heartbreak, the band says their music is for anyone who has ever been broken. Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys are touring throughout the world. Their music has appeared on international and American radio as well as in independent films and on television.
"We take the listener on a journey through the horrible, through mountains of noise and seas of emotion we take them to see the wiretooth creatures that live in the forests of love, betrayal, longing and hate and the audience can relate every step of the way"-W.S
