KMFDM, the legendary German electro-industrial outfit helmed by Sascha Konietzko, embark on their first North American tour since the April release of their album WTF?! Via Metropolis Records.

Regarding the tour Sascha commented “We are putting together one hell of a playlist for this tour with lots of fresh material from WTF?! as well as some killer classics and maybe even a surprise or two“.

Joining KMFDM on the WTF?! tour are Army of the Universe, 16Volt (Aug. 3 to 14 only) and Human Factors Lab.

William Wilson of Legion Within is performing with the current KMFDM line-up of Sascha, Lucia Cifarelli (vocals, keyboards), Jules Hodgson (guitars), Andy Selway (drums), and Steve White (guitars).


KMFDM also recently released a collection of their best known tracks in a single disc version titled Würst and a double disc edition called Greatest Shit.  Both releases feature songs from their time spent on WaxTrax! and Metropolis/KMFDM Records.


Army of the Universe, an Italian industrial duo featuring renowned European DJ Albert Vorne aka Trebla, recently released their debut album Mother Ignorance on Metropolis Records. Chris Vrenna (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM), will join Army of the Universe for a handful of dates (noted below).

16Volt released Beating Dead Horses, the Portland band’s seventh studio album, in May.

Human Factors Lab will be debuting their new EP We All Fall Down on the tour.
