Their original name being; Die Warzau Synfony.
They are an Industrial band who formed in 1987 by performance artists Jim Marcus and Van Christie.
Other contributors to the band at the time included Chris Vrenna and James Woolley, who were both members of Nine Inch Nails during the mid-1990s, also, audio visual artist Burle Avant, before he went on to co-create the MTV series "Amp".
"Engine", a 1995 release on Wax Trax!/TVT, was the last album the group released before going on hiatus for almost a decade, and included contributions from members of Sister Machine Gun. One of the songs written by Die Warzau during this time, "Hole In the Ground," ended up on the Sister Machine Gun album "Burn".
During this hiatus, Marcus and Christie were working on other projects. Jim Marcus founded the pure funk group Everplastic while Van Christie worked on another project called Eco-Hed.
In 2004, the duo re-united, together with new members Abel Garibaldi and Dan Evans, releasing Convenience on their Chicago-based label Pulseblack Records.
2008 saw the release of Vinyl 88, a collection of remixes and previously unreleased tracks including "Born Again" (for which a video was released) and "Hitler's Brain", a collaboration with Funk pioneer George Clinton. While some of the tracks had seen prior release, many of the remixes featured re-recorded elements.
2009 rolls around and Die Warzau create a number songs – many from the recent Convenience and Vinyl 88 releases.
Then 2011 arrives, and Die Warzau announced on their Facebook page that their performance at the WTII Minifest 2 on June 12 would be the band's last performance before breaking up. The live personnel included Jim Marcus, Dan Evans, Vince McAley, and Jay Ramirez.
In 2013, the band announced that they will reunite to play one show at the "Cold Waves II" festival held in Chicago in late September 2013.
