How do I look?
Visions from June.
Grand ending of the tour at Fusion Festival. Thank you to all who came, we'll see you soon.
Thoughts on a new album and a show in Paris. The show in Paris is tonight, the new album comes later.
Last night, Violent won EIGHT Leo Awards: Best Motion Picture, Best Musical Score, Best Screenwriting, Best Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects, and Best Casting!
This is a win for all filmmakers who circumvent conventional means when chasing an idea. You don’t need $$ and you don’t need the system.
This is also for all who were involved. They gave everything to make VIOLENT a reality: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3243772/fullcredits
Tonight in Rostock and a big night tomorrow in Berlin.
Thank you, Seewiesenfest. Tonight, Leipzig, then Rostock, Berlin, Jena, Brussels, Aachen, London, Paris + beyond.

Music To Confront Your Mortality To
A playlist we did for i-D Magazine
For extra effect, I recommend pairing these songs with this writing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_the_far_future
Listen, I realize this might not be a popular topic, but sometimes, sometimes, it needs to be said. We are all going to die. I think about this from time to time, the thoughts “one of these days my body will cease to exist” and “I will know exactly what it’s like to die”. There are memories that stir these thoughts, there are films too, but the most effective will always be music. There is peace here, to confront these thoughts with the comfort of others, musicians who are unknowingly standing with me, pushing me along, keeping me company.
Much like the unpopularity of our collective fates, I understand that sentimentality sometimes can also be unpopular. But sentimentality and sentimental music has its time and place, wouldn’t you agree? While I can never get enough of Death Grips and Whitehouse and many like them, my favourite songs are the quiet ones. I don’t imagine the end being very noisy.
Meet me at the food court.
