Christopher Anton is Best known for formerly being the vocalist of the Synthpop band Information Society, as well as the synth rock band Pseudocipher.

After the success of “Fade to Grey,” Anton released a solo album entitled “Destination: X”.
Christopher Anton founded the alternative synth-rock band Pseudocipher in 1998. The band initially began by recording a collage of electronic synth-pop and rock inspired pieces. This origin inevitably led the band to two releases. These were; “Pseudocipher (Self Titled) ” in 1998 and “Fragments of Empathy” in 2003. “Fragments of Empathy” (aka FOE) was produced by the French Brothers in Burbank, CA and was released on Gem Tree Records. For FOE, Anton was joined by Jon Siren (drums) and Natasha Cox (keys) of Mankind Is Obsolete. The success of Fragments of Empathy saw the band sharing the stage with acts such as, Berlin, Real Life, Daniel Ash (Bauhaus), and Anything Box.
Information Society, 2006-2008, 2009
In January 2006, Christopher auditioned for, and was selected as the new lead singer for the synth pop band Information Society (What’s on Your Mind – Pure Energy) (Think). Anton began recording with Paul Robb and James Cassidy (two of the band’s original members) in January 2006 with Anton co-writing several tracks along side Robb. The sessions lasted until Jan 2007 and the results were twofold; an EP entitled “Oscillator” and its counterpart, the full-length release “Synthesizer” both released in late 2007. The two releases marked the first new music from Information Society in 10 years. “Synthesizer” is a nod to the band’s electro-dance origins with tracks “Burning Bridges”, “Back in the Day” and “Baby Just Wants” and also reached the top 5 on Germany’s DAC album chart. During 2006-2007 Anton performed as front man for Information Society, which included shows for crowds in numbers up to 20,000 in Oregon, California, New York, New Jersey, and Brazil. In late 2007, Anton recorded and released the international dance track “I’m Lost in You” which was written and produced by electroclash pioneer Isaac Junkie from Mexico City.
