02.23.10 | Brief news for 2010. Less brief news coming shortly.
First, in case anyone didn’t already know, we’ve been signed to ProNoize for Europe. They’ll be putting out an introductory album to our work called “This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”. It compiles songs from our first three albums into a greatest hits package for those who may not be too familiar with us.
1. Pain Killer
2. When Machines Cry
3. Achtung! Bitches ?
4. Elevator Noize
6. Coppin’ It Sweet
7. State Of The ruin
8. Morning Sobriety
9. Demon Missile
11. Relax And Ride It
1. Relax and Ride It (AESTHETIC PERFECTION Remix)
2. Coppin’It Sweet (NOISUF-X Remix)
3. State of Ruin (HAUJOBB Remix)
4. State of Ruin (ASSEMBLAGE 23 Remix)
Here is the official statement about this:
“ProNoize is known for their aggressive sound and Alter der Ruine are not a band to compromise that foundation. Mixing elements of industrial, techno, hardcore, IDM and house, Alter der Ruine have become known for their viscous blending of genres and intense energy. Now, after 3 albums, 3 EPs, numerous remix appearances and over 100 live shows, Alter der Ruine and ProNoize are ready to show Europe what they can do.
America’s flagship in terms of Industrial has finally made it across the Atlantic. “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” contains their best songs which were only available in USA yet. Merciless, loud, quirky, a bit gaga and refreshingly different. The limited edition includes a bonus CD with mixes from Aesthetic Perfection, Haujobb, Noisuf-X and Assemblage 23.”
Second, we jazzed up one of our live promo videos a little.
