Mesh are back in Europe from their 20-date tour with DE/Vision and Iris through the United States, which was a great success.
Most fans assure that Mesh has blown all away. Even without all the stage production from the Euro tour, they still rock better than almost anyone else out there. Liz Ohanesian from West Coast Sounds wrote "Despite a history dating back to the mid-1990s, British band Mesh hadn't toured the U.S. before now. Their sound is a little harder than one might expect from a synthpop group, a little closer to the EBM side of the electronic music. The combination of the anticipation surrounding the performance and the band's heavy-hitting dance beats brought the already great energy in the room up another notch."
Now, only two weeks to go till “An Alternative Solution”, the new Mesh release will hit the shelves.
Fans and collectors shall look for the limited first pressing, also containing a bonus CD with additional remixes and rare tracks.
Here you can listen to xl-audio-snippets from “An Alternative Solution” in advance.
Here you already can pre-order your copy of the limited edition of "An Alternative Solution".

"WTF?!" was conducted, as always, by KMFDM founder, leader and vocalist Sascha K. who believes this is his most powerful and dominate sonic statement to date.
The Blackvector Magazine writes "... a great album with a strong vocal performance and production. For all die hard KMFDM fans this maybe is yet another masterpiece from the band ...", the COMA Music Magazine praises "this album is breathtaking" and Reflections Of Darkness writes "`WTF?!’ is a sure must-have not only because it’s from the mainstays of Industrial scene, but because it’s fucking great!"
But form your own opinion – Here you can listen to long snippets of all 11 tracks and here you can easily get your own copy of the CD album.
