IAMX – Fractures Tour 2024

Chris Corner’s process of becoming IAMX has been theatrical, communal, androgynous, and visceral. Fueling electronic experimentation with punk energy and confessional lyricism, Corner’s dark sound, fashion, performances, videos, and persona are larger than life, iconoclastic, and at the same time shockingly intimate.Just as the X in mathematics signifies the variable and unpredictable, Corner’s identity and artistry evolves through experimentation and fierce independence. As a result, his work continues to deepen with his ever-expanding catalogue of projects.From the days as the co-founder of world-renowned trip-hop outfit Sneaker Pimps, to his ongoing solo project IAMX, Corner has metamorphosed from small-town kid, to international pop star, to the creator of transcendent, raw art that disrupts gender and genre.After releasing the IAMX debut album ‘Kiss + Swallow’ in 2004, Corner moved from his native UK to Berlin, Germany in 2005. There, he released six additional IAMX albums over the following eight years. Until, in the midst of the 2013 world tour, Corner was diagnosed with depression and chronic insomnia. This prompted a move to Los Angeles and yielded the album ‘Metanoia’ in 2015.An intensely cathartic body of work, ‘Metanoia’ represented a comeback and a turning point in Corner’s life, and allowed him to explore themes of mental health which eventually led to partnerships with organizations like the You Rock Foundation, as well as the creation of his own mental health podcast, HEADNOISE.

Since then, Corner has released several more IAMX studio albums, a tour documentary, two experimental electronica albums and a 2020 acoustic album, ‘Echo Echo’, which was co[1]produced by David Bottrill. (Peter Gabriel, David Sylvian, Tool)
His latest album ‘Fault Lines¹’ was released in May 2023, with grandiose, provocative production and lyrics. It’s companion, ‘Fault Lines²’ is expected in 2024.
Corner is a heavily licensed artist, with 16 IAMX tracks on ABC’s ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ alone. Plus, multiple songs on CBS’ ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ and Amazon’s ‘Tin Star’, amongst many other top shows globally and numerous soundtrack and commercial contributions as Sneaker Pimps.Corner is also a video artist in his own right. Filming, directing, and editing stunning live visuals and music videos for IAMX, Sneaker Pimps, and other acts such as close friend and colleague Gary Numan.
