July 27, 2011 — KMFDM, the legendary German electro-industrial outfit helmed by Sascha Konietzko, embark on their first North American tour since the April release of  WTF?! on Metropolis Records.
“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,” Sascha shared.
Joining KMFDM on the  WTF?! tour are Army of the Universe, 16Volt (Aug. 3 to 14 only) and Human Factors Lab.   Army of the Universe, an Italian industrial duo, recently released their debut album  Mother Ignorance on Metropolis Records.    The band features renowned European DJ Albert Vorne aka Trebla.   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.
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 calledGreatest Shit.   Both releases feature songs from their time spent on WaxTrax! and Metropolis/KMFDM Records.
