Front Line Assembly - New Single EP exclusively on their forthcoming tour with mind.in.a.box!
If you followed the DAC of the summer, it is striking that while the successful Front Line Assembly album "Improvised Electronic Device" and it´s single "Shifting Through The Lens" defended the leading chart positions, another FLA Title again and again has been chosen by the DJs on the singles charts: "Angriff".
This track with the German sung chorus "Kampfbereit Kameraden .." ("Ready for combat comrades ...") has emerged to a club hit. So FLA will offer at their October's tour with mind.in.a.box an exclusive limited CD single EP that contains not less than five new versions of "Attack", two previously unreleased new songs plus a radio edit.
The remixers are PROJECT PITCHFORK, Tim Skold (Marilyn Manson / KMFDM), MINDLESS FAITH, the tour colleagues mind.in.a.box and FLA by theirself.
The 8-track EP will only be available at the merchandise stall on the forthcoming FLA tour.

mind.in.a.box are without a doubt the shooting stars of the domestic electro-industrial scene. While their 2004 debut „Lost Alone“ was well received by the international press, it was the follow-up „Dreamweb“ that marked the real breakthrough for the Austrian duo, showcasing an expert combination of electronic styles and influences from techno to EBM to trance and beyond.
While the following albums „Crossroads“ and „R.E.T.R.O“, along with the single „8 Bits“, all found deserved spots in the upper regions of the German Alternative Charts, the duo continued to refuse offers to perform live until last summer, when after a year of preparations, they appeared as a five-piece at the Arvika Festival to critical acclaim.
Since then the band has played live periodically, surfacing at the Norwegian Elektrostat Festival and Berlin’s E-Tropolis and garnering ever more postivie enthusiastic reviews. Now, we’re pleased to announce the band’s first full-length tour as support for the 19-show European leg of Front Line Assembly’s current world tour.
It may be a cliche, but seriously: you don’t want to miss this!

One thing is clear: the fans are ready and waiting! And rightly so: „Pins and Needles“ is in our opinion the band’s best release to date and will soon be the standard against which all others in the genre will be measured against.
