New And One single «Military Fashion Show» will out May 19th, 2006 via their new European label Out Of Line. The title track is an infernal mix of stomping EBM beats, weirdly beautiful synthesizer hooks and highly memorable melodies - addictive Body-Pop at its best! «Military Fashion Show» contains all the ingredients of a typical And One anthem and yet manages to sound fresh, dirty and new at the same time. The two other new tracks on the single do not fail to amaze either: «Beauty Clown» is one of those strange and provocative German electro pop songs with which Steve Naghavi always manages to take the crowds by storm. After that, «Computerstar» revs up the blistering beats to embark on a synthetic transfer from neuro transmitters to computer to dancefloor.Tracklisting:

When talking about future pop and melodic EBM, it is impossible to ignore Norway's Icon Of Coil - a band usually mentioned in the same breath as VNV Nation and Apoptygma Berzerk. Unfortunately, the first releases of the group based around Andy LaPlegua (Combichrist/Panzer AG) and Sebastian Komor (Monofader/Moonitor/Zombie Girl) long ago turned into hard-to-find and deleted rarities and have been out of print for many years. Now finally May 5th, 2006 sees the Out Of Line label releasing a complete anthology of Icon of Coil's early years on three seperate compact discs : «I» will contain the debut single «Shallow Nation» and the first full-length album «Serenity Is The Devil». «II» encompasses the two first EPs - «One Nation Under Beat» and the «Seren E.P.», while «III» features the second album «The Soul is in the Software» and the «Access and Amplify» EP. Finally all of the bands storming club anthems from the Tatra years, such as «Regret», «Disconnect», «Floorkiller» and «Shallow Nation» (the single that turned Icon of Coil into one of the most popular acts in the scene virtually over night), are available again on CD. Icon of Coil combine the synthetic melodies of electro pop, the aggressive beats of EBM and the club-compatibility of techno like no other act in the underground scene. «I», «II» and «III» are timeless and essential collections.Tracklistings:
