Studio Recordings


Schedule IV is despair, recovery, anger, and heartbreak. Coming from each of the four corners of Metro-Detroit, the quintet is an energetic construction of post-punk and industrial guitar, drums, and synth, with melancholic and disaffected lyrical work.


  • Steph Strange (formerly of Strangeling and Venereal Injection)
  • Mike Phipps (Pulse State, The Disaffect, and ex-D:Konstruct)
  • Don Gransden (formerly of DeLIEN and Siegemachine)
  • Joshua McAllister (formerly of function13 and DeLIEN)
  • Jervon Molloy

Schedule IV is contemporary goth rock cut from the cracking concrete of a city that’s finding its shape again.


Detroit has a thing. There is something about the art that comes from there that bleeds desperation. The kind that makes me feel very cold inside. I made a few ‘clicks’ recently that connected me to members of this band Schedule IV. When I finally listened, I instantly felt choked up. Their music has a quality I’m totally into, even if I can’t put a finger on it. There is amazing talent out there. Find it.

– Steven Siebold of Hate Dept., MUET

Friday night’s band, Schedule IV, is a creature of the Goth Scene in Detroit with a penchant leaning toward rock & the siren songs similar to Depeche Mode & The Cure. Dark and sad but with the post-punk rally-call of self-worth and pulling oneself up by your own bootstraps, the Music touches all sides of your feelings while listening. This 5-piece goth rock band is also known as a reliable and talented Detroit-area opener for bands like Swedish-based “Covenant,” Canadian darkwave darlings “ACTORS,” and the New York’s Post-Punk group, “Bootblacks.”
