THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE
After 20 years of outlier success in the music industry, The Birthday Massacre continues to grow their art and their fan base. Millions of streams attest to the legions of fans who are added to the Imaginary Monsters Army daily. From their earliest work, Nothing and Nowhere through their iconic Walking With Strangers,( which has been called the Sgt.

But that is because they came at their music from an Art College perspective and not as a band thing. The band was one way to express their art and it remains that way today.
