Hamburg-based industrial rock pioneers KMFDM revealed their second single “Airhead” from the forthcoming album LET GO on the 26th January. The band delivers a unique gem that lyrically harks back to growing up in America during the 70s and 80s. Co-vocalist Lucia Cifarelli delivers the opening lines:“Born the year of the Chia pet – Blondes were in, but I’m brunette – Vietnam and Donkey Kong – I was busy getting high with Cheech & Chong.”
The single’s accompanying video has been made by 210 Media. It takes us on a trip down memory lane through the eyes of a child and from a bygone era of American life.
In celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary, LET GO marks their 23rd studio album, with the core line-up of Sascha ‘Käpt’n K’ Konietzko, Lucia Cifarelli, Andy Selway and Andee Blacksugar. The group continue to bridge the gaps between genres, coalescing into what we know and love as the Ultra Heavy Beat! “Never let them know your next move,” states the Käpt’n.
LET GO is available on LP, CD and digital format.
