Nitzer Ebb Returns!

Industrial-electro pioneers Nitzer Ebb are returning from a 15-year hiatus with a new album that renews their unique take on industrial. Nitzer Ebb has a way of meshing a variety of different genres into a musical melting pot of powerful rhythms, minimal sequencer bass and hooklines and fierce, chanted vocals.

After originally reforming in 2006, the band’s increasingly active profile included 2010 European tour activities with Depeche Mode and at major festival shows, as well as embracing the challenge of returning to the studio. The result is a piece of work that sounds fresh and modern but without denying their past: the new album, Industrial Complex, is slated for release in North America on November 9th, 2010 thru Artists’ Addiction Records.

Industrial Complex is a musically and vocally diverse work that illustrates the band’s skill at getting to the essence of each track, making it as perfect on the dance floor as it is at home on headphones. Judging by the single, "Promises," it's as if the band never went on hiatus to begin with. In fact it's as if it were 1989 all over again, and Nitzer Ebb had stormed the studio(Yeah I know that a Meat Beat record) and taken it over. "Promises," sounds like the Chemical Brothers before the Chemical Brothers and is pretty much guaranteed to slaughter the dance floor at every goth night between here and Timbuktu.

Welcome back guys.
