Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan will release his second solo album «Hourglass» in late October. This release is the follow-up to his 2003 solo album «Paper Monsters», which marked his debut as a full-fledged songwriter.
Gahan recently returned to the studio to record an array of songs that would become «Hourglass». Created without the pressure of a deadline, Gahan wrote and produced all the songs in collaboration with Christian Eigner (drums) and Andrew Phillpott (guitars) of the Depeche Mode touring band. They worked at Gahan's 11th Floor Studios in his adopted hometown of NYC where he's lived for the past 10 years. Tony Hoffer, known for his work with Beck and Air, has been tapped to mix the album in July.
Gahan says «Hourglass» is more electronic-sounding than «Paper Monsters», «but we were very aware of the importance of keeping urgency in the sound and a feeling of spontaneity. We didn't want to get bogged down in trying to make everything sound perfect. You want to keep the rough edges.»
Gahan adds: «Christian plays drums and Andrew can easily find his way around bass and guitar - and then we're basically cutting all this stuff up and fucking with it by using ProTools, effects and all kinds of stuff. Accidents do happen, and they're good.»
With its themes of racing against - and running out of - time, the songs on «Hourglass» dig deeper into Gahan's psyche. «I'm still that teenager who's desperately trying to grow up, but in total fear of it really happening,» he says. The album's tracks include «Saw Something», «Use You», «Endless», «21 Days», «A Little Lie», «Deeper and Deeper», «Love Will Leave», «Down», «Miracles», «Tomorrow» and «Kingdom».
Stay tuned for more news!

New KMFDM album «Tohuvabohu» will out via KMFDM Records/Metropolis Records on August 21th.
KMFDM, now in their 23rd year, remain a musical entity to be reckoned with. Through relentless experimentation and reinvention they have continued to unleash a barrage of songs that allow their fans to dance with abandon, bang their heads or dissect the band’s cuttingly cunning lyrics – sometimes all at once!
KMFDM’s new album, «Tohuvabohu» is no exception. ‘Tohuvabohu’, an Old Testament word meaning «wild and chaotic», perfectly captures the spirit and energy behind the tracks contained therein. Sascha Konietzko, the band’s founder and leader, conducts his army of analog synths and wields his razor sharp lyrics and vocals. Chanteuse Lucia infuses her tracks with a fiercely powered urgency alternating with soft beauty. The KMFDM core remains solid as ever with Jules Hodgson, Andy Selway and Steve White providing the cranking guitars and forceful beats that KMFDM is known for.
While staying true to the Ultra Heavy Beat, «Tohuvabohu» also dares to venture into new territory, ultimately destroying everything in its path. The album offers up servings of dance («Looking For Strange»), metal («Saft Und Kraft») and industrial («Spit Or Swallow»), along with the somewhat unexpected elements of darkwave («Tohuvabohu»), sweeping epic («Bumaye») and even rock/pop («Fait Accompli»).
«Tohuvabohu» adds to the growing list of languages sung in the KMFDM catalog – Latin, Hebrew, Lingala (an African language) and Spanish can all be found within. The Spanish language cover of Liaisons Dangereuses’ dancefloor favorite «Los Niños Del Parque» provides a perfectly retro/electronic departure as one of the album’s most memorable tracks.
Continuing the band’s one of a kind relationship with their followers, Sascha K. invited the fans to participate in the creative process via the Fan Phone. For a couple of weeks fans from all over the world called in and recorded stories of what KMFDM means to them. Kapt’n K., as he is known to the devoted horde, wove their voices throughout the album’s opening track, «Superpower», demonstrating once again that KMFDM belongs to the people (and vice-versa).
KMFDM invites you to celebrate chaos with «Tohuvabohu». «Get ready, set, all systems go!»«Tohuvabohu»
