Event Details

Spawned in Paris, France on February 29, 1984, Kein Mehrheit Für Die Mitleid (which loosely translates into “no pity for the majority”) was initially an industrial-audio concept accompanying art-installations by Erste Hilfe, a group of painters and sculptors, enfant terrible of the mid-80’s German underground art-scene. In the following years, KMFDM began to pioneer the crossover between techno/dance and heavy metal with their signature sound. Relocating to Chicago in 1990, KMFDM was the pride of Wax Trax Records during the label’s peak.

Under the leadership of German-born music founder Sascha K. a/k/a Käpt’n K, the only permanent member throughout the band’s history, KMFDM is still going strong after over three decades of conceptual continuity, regularly recording and releasing albums and frequently touring the world over. Despite the fact that KMFDM consumed the majority of his time and efforts over the years, Käpt’n K still got involved in several side-projects (MDFMK, Excessive Force, Schwein, KGC, OK•ZTEIN•OK) and made a name for himself as a music producer as well as a remixer (Metallica, White Zombie, Front 242 and many more).

In the fall of 2014 KMFDM released their latest album OUR TIME WILL COME and in 2015 the remix EP SALVATION. Since their 2015 US Tour, KMFDM recorded their brand new upcoming studio album HELL YEAH, to be released this summer. Supported by Ohgr, Skinny Puppy's front-man and Hamburg's own Lord Of The Lost, KMFDM will hit the road again to begin yet another massive round of concert dates in the US this fall.
