My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, ‘The Way We Live Now’ – Exclusive Song Premiere
My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult have been pumping out their unique brand of industrial music for more than 25 years, and the Chicago outfit is still going strong. In fact, the group is set to release ‘Spooky Tricks,’ its first studio album in five years, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere of the track ‘The Way We Live Now’ (listen below).
For those of you who less familiar with My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, the band has been churning out blasphemous yet infectious songs like ‘Kooler Than Jesus’ since the late ’80s, influencing acts like Marilyn Manson along the way.
Their latest disc, ‘Spooky Tricks,’ arrives May 6, and features a collection of new songs inspired by ’70s electronic dance and early ’80s new wave music. The track ‘The Way We Live Now’ is powered by a hard-driving riff and haunting vocals.
The group is still led by founding members Buzz McCoy and Groovie Mann, who along with musicians like Al Jourgensen (Ministry), Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and Sascha Konietzko (KMFDM), helped pioneer the industrial music movement.
Longtime fans of the band know that the biggest thrill of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult is their electrifying live shows. And you could catch the group out on tour this year, beginning May 28 in Ramona, Calif. See the full list of dates below.
