Fans of cultivated EBM and industrial rock in mainland Europe have been rejoicing with the news that genre legends Front Line Assembly and Die Krupps will be back on the road together in August for ‘The Machinists Reunited Tour 2022’, a repeat offering of their summer 2018 series of co-headlining shows.
Audiences can expect updated set lists from both groups, as Front Line Assembly have released the studio albums ‘Wake Up The Coma’ (2019) and ‘Mechanical Soul’ (2021) since last touching down on European soil from their home in Vancouver, Canada, while Die Krupps have issued ‘Vision 2020 Vision’ (2019) and the recent covers collection ‘Songs From The Dark Side Of Heaven’ (2021).
As on the first Machinists United tour, Hamburg-based Tension Control will open each show with a trademark set of old-school EBM bangers.
Having just completed a set of US dates to promote ‘Mechanical Soul’, Front Line Assembly will also be performing at the M’era Luna Festival in Hildesheim, Germany on 7th August, immediately prior to the tour. A remix of the album song ‘Purge’ by Black Asteroid has recently been issued and can be heard HERE .
Having played guitar with Front Line Assembly in the US, the renowned Swedish musician/producer Tim Sköld (best known for his work with Marilyn Manson, KMFDM and Shotgun Messiah, plus his Not My God collaboration with Nero Bellum) will also accompany FLA on all European dates.
