Kunst is the eighteenth album by industrial band KMFDM. It was released on February 26, 2013, on Metropolis Records.[1][2]

Background[edit]

Kunst features contributions from guest musician William Wilson and Swedish band Morlocks.[3] The album cover was designed by longtime KMFDM cover artist Aidan "Brute!" Hughes.[4] He said the album cover, a "chainsaw-wielding amazon", which Facebook removed from KMFDM's page, was created to support Russian punk rock group Pussy Riot and Ukrainian protest group FEMEN.[4] The song "Pussy Riot" was also written in support of the former.[3] The word "Kunst" is the German word for "art".[3]

Release[edit]

Kunst was released on February 26, 2013 on Metropolis Records.[3] The title track was made available on Soundcloud on November 21, 2012.[5]
