“We are putting together one hell of a playlist for this tour with lots of fresh material from WTF?! as well as some killer classics and maybe even a surprise or two,” Sascha shared.

Joining KMFDM on the *WTF?!* tour are Army of the Universe, 16Volt (Aug. 3 to 14 only) and Human Factors Lab. Army of the Universe, an Italian industrial duo, recently released their debut album *Mother Ignorance* on Metropolis Records. The band features renowned European DJ Albert Vorne aka Trebla. Chris Vrenna (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM), will join Army of the Universe for a handful of dates (noted below). 16Volt released *Beating Dead Horses*, the Portland band’s seventh studio album, in May. Human Factors Lab will be debuting their new EP *We All Fall Down* on the tour.

William Wilson of Legion Within is performing with the current KMFDM line-up of Sascha, Lucia Cifarelli (vocals, keyboards), Jules Hodgson (guitars), Andy Selway (drums) and Steve White (guitars).

KMFDM also recently released a collection of their best known tracks in a single disc version titled *Würst* and a double disc edition called *Greatest Shit*. Both releases feature songs from their time spent on WaxTrax! and Metropolis/KMFDM Records.
