KMFDM Announce New Album "Paradise"

July 8, 2019

 

 

With 2019 marking 35 years of conceptual continuity, KMFDM is showing no signs of
slowing down or mellowing out – on the contrary, the Ultra Heavy Beat is as fired up
and as energized as ever with the release of the band’s 21 st album, PARADISE!
Long revered for their innovative blend of virtually all forms of music into a monolithic
juggernaut of industrial/rock, topped off with scathing and confrontational lyrics that
challenge the social and political zeitgeist, KMFDM is at the top of their game as this
latest album hosts some of the band’s most diverse material. From the abrasive hip-hop
stylings of “K-M-F,” to the dark alt. rock ambience of “Oh My Goth,” the dub-meets-
electro/metal assault of “PARADISE” and “No God,” and the mechanized
industrial/dance energy of “Automaton,” “Disturb the Peace,” and “Megalo” (a new
rendition of the band’s classic “Megalomaniac”) – KMFDM leaves no stone unturned as
the album calls for revolution against a world overrun by fascism, authoritarianism, and
violence.
Helmed by founder and frontman Sascha “Käpt'n K” Konietzko and Lucia Cifarelli,
delivering their searing and brutal vocal performances like liquid daggers, and backed
by the percussive fury of Andy Selway, KMFDM is joined by Black Sugar
Transmission’s Andee Blacksugar lending his angular guitars to give the seething bite of
PARADISE just that extra shot of venom. Of course, what would a KMFDM album be
without a few guest performances? For PARADISE hosts some of the most impressive
in the band’s history. Doug Wimbish (TACKHEAD, Living Colour) returns for another
round to lend his electrified funk bass skills to “Piggy.” Longtime alumni Cheryl Wilson
brings her soul mama vocals to the disco-infused “WDYWB,” while rapper Andrew
“Ocelot” Lindslay delivering an all-out verbal assault on “K-M-F.” But if that weren’t
enough, fans will undoubtedly be overjoyed as “Binge Boil & Blow” finds the Lord of
Lard himself, Raymond “PIG” Watts returning to the KMFDM fold for the first time in 16
years!
Fascism is in fashion again, and the planet is a paradise for assholes… and KMFDM
will have none of it! KMFDM’s message is as relevant as ever, and PARADISE may be
the band’s most powerful outing yet, demanding that you live with no regret, don’t look
back, find your destiny, destroy what destroys you, and rip the system!
