The Phantasy helped launch Nine Inch Nails, who redefined what was possible with a keyboard. Whitechapel's second live performance could mark the beginning of Cleveland's next technologically informed rock phenomenon. "We're a postmodern, '80s, New Order kind of band," says keyboardist Nate Tomasch, the trio's most recent addition. Singer-guitarist Ben Childs's vocals have been described as "Morrissey meets Danzig," and danceable songs that swing from 125 to 160 b.p.m. make every day like Friday.
