KMFDM are back with a new album. The twenty-first in their catalogue, Paradise, is a fierce, politically-charged reaction to the growing threat of authoritarianism.
Their press release doesn’t hold back:
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!
