Industrial Complex is a studio album from British EBM group Nitzer Ebb.[5][6] It was released by Major Records on 22 January 2010 (2010-01-22) in Europe, fifteen years after the band's last studio album. It is the band's first release after parting company with Mute Records following its 2006 retrospective, Body of Work.

The Belgian edition (from Alfa Matrix) includes various bonus tracks.[7]
