Review Tuesday: KMFDM - YEAH !


KMFDM
YEAH !

So KMFDM has TWO new releases coming out this year...
KMFDM’s “YEAH!”, a 5-track EP of brand-new songs, remixes and edits will be released on June 23rd, 2017 on earMUSIC as a CD digipak and Digital.

The EP is followed by the band’s new studio album in August.

“YEAH !” features two brand new songs:
“HELL YEAH” an instant KMFDM “classic” with its ultra-heavy beat and Sascha Konietzko’s trademark cynical lyrics and the anthemic Lucia Cifarelli-fronted “FREAK FLAG”, which is included in an edit on this EP. It is a distinctive hymn for outlaws, freaks, mavericks – and all of us indeed.

KMFDM also revisited 2002’s ATTAK/RELOAD and created “ATTAK 2017”, a high-octane remixed version of the song. German rock band Lord Of The Lost’s remix of “Hell Yeah” takes the original to a wholly new and surprising direction.

TRACKLIST
1. HELL YEAH (Album Version)*
2. FREAK FLAG (Edit)*
3. HELL YEAH (Lord Of The Lost Version)
4. ATTAK 2017 (KMFDM Remix)**
5. HELL YEAH (Edit)

* TAKEN FROM THE FORTHCOMING STUDIO ALBUM "HELL YEAH".
** PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED AND ONLY AVAILABLE ON THIS EP.
Someone seems to have gone wrong with the release date of this record because it only arrived about a week ago. Nonetheless, it's a fine EP. Consisting of remixes of two tracks from the forthcoming album HELL YEAH, it serves as a tantalizing appetizer for the full meal coming out later this summer. 

The disc is very good and I look forward to the full album. If you're not a hardcore fan, you might not need this, but I am so I DID! I have tixx to see them later this year...
