    Raymond Watts and Friends are back for another US round this summer with the "Prey and Obey Tour 2017"

    So far we have:
    6/28 - Detroit
    7/7 - Denver
    7/22 - Houston
    7/27 - Calgary
    8/6 - Boston

    I'm really praying for a Vancouver one on this run!!!! KMFDM are already shafting us this year, I don't want to miss this one too.

    Still waiting for that Vancouver date........ WTF!
    Calgary but no Vancouver? Get real.

    I'm not sure who's in charge of booking shows these days. Vancouver used to be a hot spot for shows, but we get the shaft every time now. Time to pack up and move somewhere else I guess...

    Well, lucky you... now you don't have to go to Toronto... Aug 8th in Montreal...
    I seriously don't know why Vancouver is getting the shaft. They have every single city in NA including fucking Calgary, and we're getting screwed... I don't get it!

    Yeah, I...can't say I understand. That really does seem like they're going out of their way to avoid the place. Sorry man

    Conversely, Piranha Bar is a really shitty little dive joint here. I'm kind of hoping ticket sales do better than expected so the show gets moved.

    Yeah, even I know the Piranha bar (walked by it a few times, my girlfriend lives in Montreal at the moment, moving here in June though), but when I saw where they were playing Piranha even I was shocked... that place is super tiny... I like their logo though, I almost bought a t-shirt from there, badass logo.

    Skold came though here last spring, played this super small-ass dive bar himself, was shocked at how small the venue was. Assumed Skold would have brought in more of a crowd, but he even said himself he's just a hired goon, he doesn't have household name status to support a big venue. He was thankful for everyone that came out, he came to sell his own Merch and meet everyone. Super cool dude.

    Pre-order P&O here https://metropolisrecords.bandcamp.com/album/prey-obey


    Wrecked can be bought on tour, or bought online in August (from Armalyte).

    Edit: Wrecked vinyl looks like it will contain international track listings, it mentions "No One Gets..." in the credits, and the bottom left has Book of Tequila lyrics.

    The Prey & Obey EP is out today.
    Can be streamed here: https://metropolisrecords.bandcamp.com/album/prey-obey

    I'm just starting up the 3rd song now. I really like what I hear so far. Watts has been on fire recently with his work. Good stuff!

    I listened to the EP once this morning and it's really good. I hope he keeps it coming. Debating on whether or not to go to the show in Delaware in August, it's a good 2 hours from my house, would be rough driving back that late at night. Will have to see what the setlists look like.

    Totally go! I would if I had a car and it was only a 2 hr drive away. That's why I'm so choked that Watts and friends are skipping me. I don't drive, and that makes traveling harder for me. I need to catch a bus/train/plane somewhere, and that also requires an overnight stay at a hotel, so it's not worth it for me. If I drove and the show was only 2 hrs away, I would make the drive in a heartbeat!

    Unless you've already seen the band that is. If you've seen them last fall already and are on the fence that it will be the same set, then I understand why you'd be hesitant in wanting to make the trek.

    Ha yeah I caught them at the same venue last fall, guess I should've said that in my post. We've gotten a dog since then so that complicates things. If the setlist is quite a bit different I'll probably end up going.

    Wrecked LP trailer. 500 copies of it will be available signed, on tour only. It was mentioned elsewhere that it'll also be available online, presumably not signed.

    Seems like Sascha is a bit butthurt that Raymond is getting so much love with the new stuff

    Enough to make a vague Facebook post about how everyone else is an imposter.

    "thank y'all for the good wishes, hopefully evry'thing is coming together and big karma payback will happen. Support your favorites - not the impostors trying to challenge the KMFDM name - I am KMFDM - your Käpt'n truly"

    The fact is, I only really liked KMFDM because of Pig and En
    Esch. Ever since neither of them have been involved, KMFDM albums have been so damn boring. Its seriously the same song over and over.

    Raymond and Each were definitely my favorites. No matter how much Sascha refuses to admit, Esch, Schulz, and Raymond contributed greatly to the success of kmfdm. You think Nihil would've been as successful?

    I know Jules only does guitar on one track off the new album, it's Sin Quirin on another, and i think the rest is Chris Harms from Lord of the Lost. Not sure how much Andy Selway's present either. Has become a dad according to this interview. I wouldn't be surprised if Sascha considers this KMFDM 3.0.

    Or 2.5. Steve and Andy never really contribute to the albums anyway. Maybe a song here and there. I'm sure they'll still tour. Jules sounds done though. They have their things going on outside of kmfdm as well.

    New interview (audio) with 2 of the music videos. Interview is split up before, between, and after them. I don't think I've heard him laugh before, I was laughing along with him about what he said.

    https://dotswaves.wistia.com/medias/xqts1kicib
    New YouTube link available:

    We have a new album coming. It's a written and mostly recorded, work resuming after the tour.

    I'm pretty fucking excited, and it sounds like he's having a blast (glad for that too).

    Went to the Pig show in Denver last night and they didn't disappoint! Great setlist and the band sounded amazing! The turnout for the show was pretty rough though, right around 100 people tops. But in spite of the low turnout, they put on an incredible show! Julien-K was great too. I'd totally recommend seeing this tour if it comes through your town.

    WOW! I saw Pig for the first time tonight and fucking loved it! I was reticent to go only knowing Sinsation and a couple other songs, but when I learned En Esch was playing with them and they were doing songs from Nihil, I was more interested. I don't know how many times Raymond clasped my hand or patted me on the head, but I was so happy to be up front rocking the fuck out with everyone. Pig instantly went from a band I wasn't sure I wanted to bother seeing to one I'll see whenever it's convenient.

    Also, I got there earlier than I wanted to, but that meant I was also up close for Julien K's performance, which I really enjoyed. I'll definitely be checking their stuff out.

    Anyway, anything interesting going on in the NIN world?

    Hey, I saw you there last night! You were standing closer to En Esch's side, correct? I was in the middle towards the back and it too was my first PIG show. I'm so glad I was able to finally see Raymond's band live and now I can say I've seen him perform PIG and KMFDM live (saw him perform with them back in 2003/4, I forget which year it was).

    I was also able to meet him briefly after the show near the merch booth. He signed my WRECKED LP and even drew a pig with a pitchfork on the cover (and he reminded me that the lyric sheet was also signed). I can't wait to catch these guys live again!

    That's fucking great. Did you download the tracks yet, is there a big difference (if the digital ones were fully remastered too) ? Also, are they just mp3s?

    Edit: and if you listened to the vinyl too, how is it?

    Guenter's had to leave the tour, apparently due to an illness in the family. En's guitarist Luke Dangler will be filling in.

    Fuck

    Backstage audio-only interview, with a few pictures. It's about 20 minutes, very candid and loose (yet informative), it's great.

    Hopefully they're allowed into Canada this time. Got turned away at the boarder trying to cross last weekend in Calgary.
    Watts didn't have proper documentation to cross. Claims it won' effect The Toronto and Montreal dates. Guess we'll see.

    Certainly glad I didn't plan to go to that. I was mulling that date over all spring when it was announced.

    That was apparently due to some people at the Terminus festival fucking up and not having the proper paperwork.
