There’s no denying that, almost 40 years into their career, the Industrial juggernaut known as KMFDM is still a force to be reckoned with on the scene. They’ve survived a constantly changing music industry, line up changes, and most recently, a global pandemic to come back with what might be their greatest, and most “KMFDM”, release to date with HYENA which sees the light of day on September 9th through Metropolis Records. Recently we had the privilege of chatting with KMFDM singer/songwriter Lucia Cifarelli via email about the new record, the upcoming fall tour (Hitting Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on October 12th), her recent solo outing I Am Eye (Available via Bandcamp here) among other topics and it goes a little something like this:[Read more…]
Don’t call it a throwback, they’ve been here for years….okay, enough with the silliness. But to be fair, Toronto’s Phantom High IS something of a throwback with a sound that’s this modernized take on a notorious genre that’s seen an uptick by some young artists in recent years.
