Tricks (stylized as TrickS) is the fifth studio album by electro-industrial band ohGr. The album was funded via a PledgeMusic campaign and was released on June 18, 2018 after a number of delays.[1]

Background[edit]

Work on Tricks began as early as 2011, directly after the release of the band's fourth album, UnDeveloped,[2] and continued through 2018.[3] The album was officially announced on May 13, 2017[4][5] and was originally intended for release in October, 2017.[6] When it became clear that the album still needed post-production refinement and would not be ready for October, Ohgr announced a tour co-headlining with fellow industrial band KMFDM.[7] Ultimately, the album was released digitally on June 18, 2018.[1] It was immediately followed by the announcement of a full North American tour with Lead into Gold as the opening act.[8]
