RECORDS released SEXPLOSION encapsulates all of that gawdy, industrial madness, with the hit single “Sex on Wheelz” characterized as a “compressed and propulsive a celebration of fornication and driving as anything else America has ever come up with.” (Ned Raggett, Allmusic). Often described as the Gothic-Disco legends’ best work, both critically and commercially, SEXPLOSION celebrates 30 years of manic debauchery with a remastered reissue on limited edition vinyl On June 17 via Wax Trax!, featuring the never before heard track “Any Way Ya Wanna” from the original studio session,Continue reading MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT Celebrate ‘SEXPLOSION’ 30th Anniversary

Spearfish, SD based electronic alternative rock act Blacklite District has announced that they will be joining FLAW as direct support on their North American tour run. Launching Valentine’s Day in Colorado Springs, the tour winds through the Midwest and West Coast, winding up in Omaha on March 3rd.
We are excited to join FLAW and THE CROWNED on this upcoming tour. We’re going to be debuting a brand new show and it’s going to be our biggest production to date. We thrive on making sure what we do is different and something that stands out from the pack. In terms of rock music, there is no other show on the planet like a BLD show, and that’s not me just saying something cliche. There’s a reason we’re the kings of new age, and we hope you’ll come see why. – Blacklite District
Berlin-based electronic-rock duo Bullet Height, featuring Jon Courtney and Sammi Doll, have announced the release of their debut album ‘No Atonement’ for 19th May 2017 via Superball Music / Sony Music. Featuring the band’s previous two singles ‘Bastion’ & ‘Hold Together’, the album features 10 tracks of dark, primal conviction, pulped with the avant-garde, fusing industrialised electronica, heavy guitars and heartbreakingly sweet melodies.
The band comments: “Making ‘No Atonement’ was both a challenge and an adventure – there were highs & lows, battles & triumphs – but we came out intact. We’re extremely proud of the body of work & can’t wait to get it out there.”
I left London, moved to Berlin, rented a dirt cheap room in an old DDR building and started battering out the music that would go on to become Bullet Height,” says Jon Courtney, speaking about the dispersal of his former band Pure Reason Revolution. “I wanted to produce something darker and heavier than I’d ever created.”
Watch the videos for the first two singles below:
The album is now available to pre-order on CD & limited green vinyl LP, including a signed art-card while stocks last, here:https://bulletheight.tmstor.es/
“I left Los Angeles and moved to Berlin,” Sammi Doll explains. “It was to join IAMX on tour. But when the singer, Chris Corner fell ill, it was cancelled. Which was when I met Jon. Without a direction in a new city, recording this album
granted me the headspace to channel a lot of personal demons into something simultaneously positive, dark and alluring.”
A recording contract with Superball Music (part of the Sony Music group of labels) followed suit and whilst putting the finishing touches to the album, Bullet Height began gigging to an enthusiastic Berlin underground.
“It’s been quite the journey since we’ve completed the album,”comments Sammi Doll. “Everything from the mixes to the forming the live element. It’s shaped into something much bigger than we both expected.” And Courtney concurs. “Now that we’re playing shows it all feels real. We’re excited at the prospect of expanding out from the Berlin scene and getting out there.”
Like the best of artists, fear is the only thing they fear. Free living and creating on their own terms is the fuel in both their tanks. Together they’ve reached Bullet Height. A product of ex-patriot London, set in dissident Berlin. Circa 2017.
