Stabbing Westward

Stabbing Westward is an industrial band composed of Christopher Hall[?], Walter Flakus[?], Stuart Zechman[?], Jim Sellers[?] and David Suycott[?]. They formed in 1985 (1985 in music) in Chicago and began recording in the 1990s. Their major label debut was Ungod[?]. Sales were sluggish but Stabbing Westward built a solid fanbase by relentless touring. In 1996, their Wither Blister Burn & Peel LP became a moderate success aided by the single "What Do I Have to Do" (see 1996 in music).

The follow-up was Darkest Days[?]. It failed to sell as well as its predecessor, and the band was dropped from Columbia Records. They signed to Koch Records[?], issuing Stabbing Westward[?]. Before their fifth LP could be released, Stabbing Westward broke up in 2002 (2002 in music).
