MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT Reveal New Single, “The Chains of Fame” Off Upcoming LP

Single

“America’s Most Dangerous Kult” has released their newest single, “The Chains of Fame.” Originally premiered on MXDWN, “The Chains Of Fame” is the debut track off of their upcoming LP, In The House Of Strange Affairs

“A dynamic song, “The Chains of the Fame” feels like a much shorter song than its four minute run-time. Cinematic strings and unexpected audio samples during the bridge of the song lead to a futuristic bridge that make the long-running and mega-influential band sound as relevant as ever.” MATT MATASCI

Hailing from Chicago’s renowned Wax Trax! Records stable of recording artists, MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT have been conjuring up sonic tales of sex, blasphemy and kitschy horror since 1987. Along with label mates such as Front 242, KMFDM and Ministry, TKK (as often abbreviated), helped develop the industrial music genre, but they themselves continued to evolve, creating one of the most diverse repertoires in modern day music. Their sound can be described as electronic rock, heavily influenced by both disco and funk. One of their most distinctive characteristics is the use of spoken-word samples lifted from B-movies laced throughout their songs. Since debuting, they have released 13 studio albums, and their music has been featured in a variety of films, television/cable shows and soundtracks, all the while making a reputation for themselves as one of the most notorious and controversial cult bands of their generation.

Artist Franke Nardiello and musician Marston Daley, two Chicago neighbors who enjoyed late night burritos while watching foreign horror movies on VHS rented from the corner store, began conspiring to make a trashy B movie (in the style of Russ Meyer and John Waters) to be called “My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult”. While the film itself never came to fruition, they also wrote some music to be the accompanying soundtrack. Both worked at Wax Trax! Records in Chicago, and when the label heard the tracks, they were intrigued and eager to release it.

The duo took the title of the film as the name for their band, and decided to focus on the musical group full time. Taking the stage names Groovie Mann (Nardiello) and Buzz McCoy (Daley), they worked on creating an occult-biker meets disco-rock influence look for the project, which included a bevy of voluptuous back-up singers and dancers known as the BOMB GANG GIRLZ. The New York Times wrote, “Sex, blasphemy, big beats and go-go dancing; they’re all in a day’s work for My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult ”. This attracted the attention of indie fans and the ire of religious groups in practically equal measure. They released their first album I See Good Spirits And I See Bad Spirits in 1988 followed up by the hard-hitting dance floor classics “Kooler Than Jesus” and “A Girl Doesn’t Get Killed By A Make-Believe Lover Cuz It’s Hot,” which featured no-wave chanteuse Lydia Lunch on vocals. By the time they released their second album, Confessions Of A Knife (1990), they were far and away one of the biggest selling acts on the label.

In 1991, the band embarked on the decadent “Sexplosion! Tour”, titled after their third album. Alternative Press reviewed the show as “Sin-sational!”. The tour was a success and the record sold so well that they signed a deal with Interscope Records shortly afterwards, and the single “Sex On Wheelz” became a sizeable radio hit.

Hollywood also embraced the group, recognizing the unique cinematic aspect of their sound. The band’s music has appeared in a slew of films and tv/cable shows including, director Ralph Bakshi’s “Cool World”, Paul Verhoven’s saucy “Showgirls”, MTV’s “Beavis And Butthead”, and the cult film classic “The Crow”, in which the ensemble make a cameo appearance performing their song “After The Flesh”. More recently the KULT was written into the story line of the 2014 film “Sexy Evil Genius” starring Seth Green.

THRILL KILL KULT continue to release new material via their own SleazeBox Records label (sleazebox.com) and tour extensively with a rotating cast of musicians and dubious characters, however the core of the project has always been Nardiello and Daley, both on record and in the live act. Their performances sizzle with sleaze and infectious grooves, as Melody Maker once described, “A red hot cabaret from Hell”.

They begin their 4th decade this year with the release of a new album, In The House Of Strange Affairs on February 14th, and a North American tour commencing May 5th in Las Vegas. The current line-up is Groovie Mann (vocals), Buzz McCoy (keys), Mimi Star (bass), Justin Thyme (drums), Arena Rock (Bomb Gang Girl).

Free Free Dom Dom Release ‘Be’ EP via Bishops Bloc Records

Berlin indie dance duo Free Free Dom Dom have crafted a swirling twirling future pop masterpiece that has you hitting repeat to no end. Lead singer Little Voice reminds us that nobody is telling this girl who or what she can “be” while partner Phil backs her up vocally and instrumentally in all the right places. Midway through the song things take a darker turn and this is exactly where Fear The Priest’s industrial tinged gothic techno remix takes off. Start your day off with the original and start your night off with the remix because this release has moods for all occasions.

Download / Stream Online:
iTunes | Beatport

 

Free Free Dom Dom is a Berlin-based duet formed by Little Voice and Philippe Duval, 2 years ago. Their indie dance distills pure melodic energy with a strong message. “We are free to be whoever we want to be.” Their new track “Be” offers an interesting perspective on the subject. Why should we follow all the rules dictated by society when we can sense those rules are not good for us ? “Be” states we shouldn’t let anyone tell us “what to be”.
Little Voice is also known as Laetitia Duveau, the art curator who runs the online platform Curated By Girls, giving a voice to visual arts related to diversity, equality and softness.

Pelussje, a.k.a. James Nayler & Chiara Benelli are two Italian bass music producers and DJs born in 2004 in flaming walls of sound, burning screams and fiery stage divings. After a period of circuit bending and underground live based shows, they decided to bring back to the ring their deep love of mixer and turntables.

In the ensuing years their productions turned to more sophisticated and club-oriented mood, colored by massive basslines and the full flavor of their musical roots. Their music evolved into a more refined and mature sound, reflecting the deep upstream artistic growth that brought them to catch the attention of one of the most important tastemakers in the industry like Owsla.

Pelussje built a significant global reputation through touring Europe, North America, South Africa, Taiwan, South Korea, Mexico and Brazil, sharing the stage with such major acts as Skrillex, Crookers, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, Congorock, Boys Noize, SebastiAn, and Zomboy.

Their dynamic and eclectic music has been released with many of the most important, international labels including ULTRA, Universal, Sony, EMI, and Nest / Owsla, receiving support from such big names as Skrillex, The Bloody Beetroots, Steve Aoki, Benny Benassi, Congorock, Joachim Garraud and many more.

Pelussje’s consistently visually stunning videos conquered the YouTube world, presenting diverse imagery, particularly with their latest videos “Salsoul Nugget If U Wanna” and “Love Is You”, off of their Salsoul & West End Remixed Vol.5 EP on ULTRA, which received high praise from not only the internet community, but Rolling Stone and MTV Clubland. They’ve been also nominated for Best New Generation Electro at the prestigious MTV Digital Days 2014 (Italy).

Figure is back with his 7th annual Monsters release, seven brand new songs including guest appearances by Bare, Dack Janiels, & Code Pandorum. Following up his 2015, 66-track digital box set Monsters 6.66 this album is straight to the point, heavy bass and classic, monsters-inspired sound that Figure has crafted over the years. Having toured extensively throughout his career, you can hear the desired intent for his music to be heard in clubs and on large festival stages across the globe. Monsters 7 ranges from Dubstep & Drumstep all the way to heavy metal influenced sounds with live instruments played by Figure himself.

Figure started 2016 on the Paradox Tour with Excision, running through over 60 cities in just under three months playing for sold out crowds across North America, making solo trips to Europe and Australia in the spring and is now on tour again across North America headlining the Outta This World Tour withProtohype ( #OTWTour ).
