With sixteen studio albums to their credit, Project Pitchfork are seasoned veterans of the dark electro scene. The German band first hit the scene in 1990, marking their territory with innovative, hard electronics, and last year’s Blood album found them refining the stuff nightmares are made of. We asked Peter Spilles to come into the light ahead of their show.

If you would do a cover, like right here, right now, which song would you choose – and why?
I wouldn’t do any cover song right now; but, if you’d force me to, I’d choose “Born to Lie” by Mesh.
If you were to do a collaboration on your next album, which would be your dream artist to collaborate with?
I fulfilled my dream collaborations with my project, IMATEM. Just wait for the next IMATEM album!
