My Life With Thrill Kill Kult release new single, The Chains of Fame and tour dates!

January 5, 2019

  My Life With Thrill Kill Kult are set to release their new album, In The House Of Strange Affairs on Februarty 14, 2019. They have released their new single, The Chains of Fame which is off the upcoming album. Matt Matasci comments about the track, “A dynamic song, “The Chains of the Fame” feels like a much shorter song than its four minute run-time. Cinematic strings and unexpected audio samples during the bridge of the song lead to a futuristic bridge that make the long-running and mega-influential band sound as relevant as ever.”  Check out the new track: You can catch My Life With Thrill Kill Kult out on tour. They will be heading out on tour with Curse Mackey for the Strange Affairs Tour.
