Victor Love is stepping out of cyberpunk rock act Dope Stars Inc. to release a solo album and he's teamed up with Loudwire to bring you the exclusive premiere of the new song "Bitchcraft," featuring a guest appearance by KMFDM's Sascha Konietzko and Lucia Cifarelli.

Starting with a growing electronic beat, the track builds into a more fuzzed out, industrial rock sound with plenty of aggression. The song is indicative of Love's exploration of different styles that can be heard on his upcoming album, Technomancy.

Love tells Loudwire, "In a virtual reality where technology has become indistinguishable from magic and values are being distorted or either imposed by digital algorithms we see a society still chasing material values. A social system fed by desperation and giving the illusion we will draw the right card because we are destined for something special as long as we follow the imposed rules and sell ourselves to worship conformity without a fight."

He adds, "The song is a critique to this model but more in general the whole album Technomancy is a 'collection of spellware to break the firewall of conformity cast through the digital media.' A ritual to exorcise the absurd I've seen happening in the dark sides of the web and beyond."

In addition to KMFDM, you'll find guest turns from Deathstars, Spiritual Front, Army of the Universe, Aborym & ZU, Deflore, The Enigma TNG and Hate Inc. & Orax on the disc. The Technomancy album, which includes striking artwork by Valenberg, is due May 6 via Metropolis Records, with the "Bitchcraft" digital single arriving April 15. Go ahead and get your orders in now via the Metropolis online store.
