Formed in 2008 by main band member and Vocalist Chris Bollinger but went on break due to an every changing line up of people. Varicella reformed in 2012 with the addition of Chris Pasquarelli on guitar.

Varicella is on a mission to bring back the sound of the old school 80’s style industrial of such acts like Ministry, Godflesh, and KMFDM. Along with the older experimental anything goes attitude from acts like Skinny Puppy and Coil to today’s modern heavy dance beat industrial / EBM music.

Varicella’s debut full length album “Dead is Better” is currently being mixed and mastered with a tentative release date of spring 2018.
