Bleak proudly presents:

Konstruktivists

Destiny Drive


out Feb. 2014 - red vinyl only - limited edition of 300- incl. booklet, fold-out poster, download code

All new material from the legendary Post-Industrial / Experimental / Electronic duo of Glenn Michael Wallis and Mahk Rumbae.

PREORDER STARTING SOON!

One of the longest active bands to emerge from the UK industrial scene of the late 70’s, Konstruktivists have spent more than three decades creating some of the most unique and challenging electronic music.

Founded in 1980 by Throbbing Gristle/Whitehouse associate Glenn Michael Wallis, the band has featured numerous musicians during the band’s existence, and has operated mainly as a duo for much of the past twenty years with Mahk Rumbae (Oppenheimer MkII / Ghost Actor).

‘Destiny Drive’ was written and recorded between 2013 and 2014, and is the fist Konstruktivists album to be released on vinyl since 1985’s ‘Glennascaul’.

The album contains seven completely new songs, exciting and enthralling, pulsating in darkness, combining abstract, rhythmic electronics with Glenn’s unique, surrealistic vocals and lyrics.

It is also the fist physical release on Bleak, a Vienna based label releasing experimental electronic music.

 

What a nice evening we spent at Vienna's Xi Bar.

Fetisch Park and Hiroshimabend were playing great sets, and a nice audience enjoyed them.

Our friends Klanggalerie are hosting the fantastic Fetisch Park in the beautiful Xi Bar in Vienna on Saturday Nov 29th. Ze Bleak will be taking care of the sound there, and most likely play a couple of superspecial tracks. You have been warned. Would be great to see you there, you shouldn't miss it. Support act is the great Hiroshimabend, very much looking forward to seeing both. Here's the facebook event link. And here's a video:
The Bleak / [aufnahme+wiedergabe] split reissue of the fantastic White Stained Covers tape is still on sale here, grab it while you can! Featuring parodies of Whitehouse tracks, this is undoubtedly one of the most arguable releases in the Power Electronics genre. Get it with three even more disputable buttons and a free download from the Bleak Store!
