KMFDM Announce Two New Releases + Fall 2017 U.S. Tour
German industrial outfit KMFDM have announced two new releases -- an EP and a full-length album -- as well as a fall 2017 U.S. tour.
"Please sit down, as I've got news to share that's going to literally melt your face!" KMFDM leader Sascha Konietzko says in a Facebook post. "I'm happy to say that you are the first to learn about our upcoming 'KMFDM Hell Yeah! 2017 Tour' and two new releases! That's right ladies and gentlemen, we'll be releasing YEAH!, a 5-track EP of new songs and remixes on June 23rd, followed by a full-length album in August."
YEAH! features two new songs, "Hell Yeah" and "Freak Flag," and a remix of each song, with the former done by German rock band Lord of the Lost. KMFDM is also revisiting the title track to their 2002 album Attak on "Attak 2017." The artwork for the EP, which can been seen below, is part of a larger piece by longtime KMFDM collaborator Aidan Hughes (aka Brute) that will be revealed in full when the LP comes out in August.
The U.S. tour will be supported by ohGr (featuring Nivek Ogre of fellow industrialists Skinny Puppy) and Lord of the Lost. See the dates below.
