*LORDS OF ACID DEBUT VIDEO FOR TITLE TRACK FROM FORTHCOMING* *LITTLE MIGHTY RABBIT* *EP (SEPT. 27)* * * NSFW VIDEO PREVIEWS BAND’S FIRST NEW MUSIC IN OVER A DECADE; REMIXES FROM CHRISTOPHER LAWRENCE, CHRIS VRENNA AND KMFDM ON EP

Aug. 30, 2011 — Lords of Acid, who release their first new music in nearly a decade, the *Little Mighty Rabbit EP*, on Sept. 27 via Metropolis Records, unveil a NSFW video to accompany the EP’s title track (found here: )

The legendary electro-industrial band has always infused their art, music and live shows with a campy overture to sexuality and continue that theme not only with the EP name but also with the risqué video. DJ Mea lends vocals to “*Little Mighty Rabbit*,” while B-movie actress Natasha Talonz is featured throughout the video.

Praga Khan worked with longtime collaborator Erhan Kurkun on the music and arrangements for the *Little Mighty Rabbit EP*. Packaged with the three original tracks are nine remix treatments from a wide range of artists including DJ wizard Christopher Lawrence, frenetic hip-hop mash-up artist CX Kidtronik (Atari Teenage Riot) and industrial producer/musician Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson).

*Little Mighty Rabbit* track listing:

1. Little Mighty Rabbit 2. Little Mighty Rabbit (Smell-O Kitty Mix) – KMFDM 3. Little Mighty Rabbit (Bass To Mouth Mix) – AK 1200 & Bill Hamel 4. Little Mighty Rabbit (tweaker Mix) – Chris Vrenna & Jesse Hall 5. Drowning in Ecstacy 6. Little Mighty Rabbit (Christopher Lawrence Mix) – Christopher Lawrence 7. Little Mighty Rabbit (DJ Micro Mix) – DJ Micro 8. Little Mighty Rabbit (Radical G Mix) – Radical G 9. Sole Sucker 10. Little Mighty Rabbit (Krack Bunny Mix) – CX Kidtronik & Breaker 11. Little Mighty Rabbit (Suburban Secrets Mix) – 3KStatic 12. Little Mighty Rabbit (Dirty Dub D*ldo Mix) – DJ Hardware & Oscillator Z

Lords of Acid formed in 1988 with their biggest selling album being * Voodoo-U*, which was recently certified gold (sales in excess of 500,000 copies) in the U.S.

Just a few weeks ago we shared the experience of celebrating the 7th Amphi Festival together at the Tanzbrunnen Cologne. 16.000 attendants from all over the world turned that incredible weekend into THE event of the dark festival summer! Unfortunately this summer turned out to be much darker than usual, with almost no festival passing along without at least one major rainstorm. And the Amphi had not been spared though. Thanks to its solid pavement, the rain sheltered main stage, the additional programme at the Theater stage and the newly introduced festival café at the Staatenhaus, it had proven capable again to offer an uncompromised festival experience, even while St. Peter opened up his flood gates!

*AFTER THE AMPHI IS BEFORE THE AMPHI!*

Following the Amphi Festival´s overwhelming success throughout the last years (it has been sold out for the third time by now), you can expect nothing less than a major summer extravaganza for 2012. The 8th Amphi Festival will again take place at the Tanzbrunnen Cologne on 21. & 22. July 2012 and, even in this early stage, we are very happy to offer you an impressive line-up. Keen eyes will surely have spotted the banners, placed at the festival-ground, announcing the first 10 bands. *THE SISTERS OF MERCY * are headlining the Amphi Festival 2012. Also we have *CAMOUFLAGE, DAF, MONO INC., CORVUS CORAX, COPPELIUS, HAUJOBB, SEABOUND, TYSKE LUDDER* and *WHISPERS IN THE SHADOW*, writing the first chapter of a multi-layered programme of gothic-, medieval- and electronic sounds.

In this respect we would also like to thank you for your enormous positive feedback and band requests, we already received by the annual visitor poll. It is our utmost pleasure to announce, that we were able to implement some of your biggest favourites into the 2012 line-up directly:

*NEW BANDS AND 2nd HEADLINER CONFIRMED FOR AMPHI FESTIVAL 2012!*

It gets colder again in 2012! In the fifth year after their first Amphi Festival appearance (oh dear, how time flies…) *EISBRECHER* have ultimately rocked themselves into the heart of the audience. The loading deck packed with new songs of their upcoming album (to be released in spring 2012), Captain Alexx and Noel Pix are about to cast the anchor at the Rhein shore, as the second headliner of the Amphi Festival 2012. In addition to that four electronic highlights have joined our humble offerings!

On Friday 12th August *PROJECT PITCHFORK* released their latest album “Quantum Mechanics”. In tune with their latest works the Hamburg based electro-pioneers did not hesitate to confirm their appearance at the Amphi 2012 immediately. Also we welcome Amphi festival first-timers *[:SITD:]*from Bochum, whose steaming beats will set the floor on fire. Same goes for Sven Friedrich, who recently released “Frontiers”, the second album of his electronic project called* SOLAR FAKE,*. Finally, after their impressive opening act at this years Amphi Festival, there will be another encounter with the Cologne-based *[X]-RX*, aiming to bring down our Staatenhaus with a full blast of Cyber-Rave action!

Alongside 34 Acts on the main stages, Open Air and at the Staatenhaus, you can look forward to an attractive line-up of reading performances, talks and special concerts at the Theater stage. Our preparations are up and running, so watch out for first announcements very soon!

Dallas, TX: Frausun’s 6th album “aSHEs,” an 11 song LP blending DNB, Industrial and Ambient music styles, is now available.

Covering a variety of topics, from the magick of number theory and battle strategy to Ménage à trois’s and the Norse Gods, “aSHEs” blends numerous musical elements for a unique experience. Songs such as “A.S.S.A.U.L.T.,” a hard and fast industrial anthem about the glory of battle, give way to Ambient, introspective works like “The Garden Song,” where a poet watches as his two lover’s dance among the flowers he’s planted.

“I have no respect for bands that have one distinct sound or style. Playing ‘Chug-Chug-Chug’ on a guitar for an entire album and screaming incoherently gets old. I want people to buy my work never knowing what’s around the musical corner.” Kurtz

The rising and descending of beats from song to song hurl the listener to and fro in a frantic style of sounds, loops and dizzying effects.

“One moment, you are hypnotized by the tranquil harmony of birds and wind, the next, you awaken in a battlefield with sirens and gunfire all around. The listener becomes a spiritual time traveler, from the earth, to the sky and eventually to the gods.” Kurtz

Along with the new album, Frausun’s live shows have transformed dramatically in the past year, such as the use of live scarification.

“Every time we take stage, an offering to the Gods is made by drawing blood. By carving Runes into flesh, my Slave muse Paloma and I gladly accept the pain and wounds of battle, acknowledging our devotion to our faith.” Kurtz

The album “aSHEs” can be found at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ashes/id458110412
