Hot off a European stadium tour with Depeche Mode, MOTOR returns to the US for a headlining club tour. Dethlab is pleased to bring Mr. Black and Mr. No back to Detroit - this time around at The Works, with extra sound provided by Source Audio.
MOTOR's new album Metal Machine and monstrous industrial-strength acid workout "Death Rave" are out on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label in the US and T. Raumschmiere & Apparat's Shitkatapult label in Europe.
As the title suggests, Motor’s new album ‘Metal Machine’ is abrasive metallic music, combining tough techno beats and raw rock riffs, underscored by ‘relentless mechanical grooves that spit blood’
All ten new album tracks retain Motor’s trademark industrial/ rock elements previously showcased on albums 'Klunk' and 'Unhuman', though this time round the emphasis is firmly on the dance-floor.
“We wanted it to carry on the spirit of those first two records, but at the same time we had to break new ground and we knew after producing just a few rough demos that the new record was going to be seriously raw and off the wall,” says the band, “We wanted to get back into the clubs with a fresh sound.”
Dethlab has steadfastly been promoting and providing hard, dark electro bangers and "Satan Techno" since 2005. Dethlab has toured with Solvent and Lowfish, DJ'd at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and recently opened for The Prodigy at the official Movement '09 kick-off party. Dethlab has brought the likes of Vitalic, Motor and Fixmer/McCarthy to Detroit for the first time and co-produced 2008's No Way Back/Too Far Gone loft party with dear friends and frequent partners Interdimensional Transmissions. Dethlab sets often include comedic theatrics (such as fake blood loaded penis-shaped squirt guns at Theatre Bizarre,) and innovative media (such as the custom reactive/interactive video projected on weather balloons at the Prodigy show.)
