An emboldened and emotive return, Bad Kingdom the first single from the new album Moderat II.
Hardly anybody has brought electronic music from Berlin to the farthest flung corners of the world with more passion and enthusiasm than Modeselektor and Apparat. Individually or united as Moderat, they have continuously toured the world, grew a loyal and dedicated fan base and have continued to amaze with quality releases all the way.
A the strictly limited 10inch edition is an exclusive tour merchandise item, available on the road and in limited quantities at the Monkeytown Records Web shop:
Earlier this year the band has announced the new Moderat album "II" in a short personal statement:
"After spending 6 quite intense months in the studio we just finished our 2nd album. It's simply called Moderat 'II' and we aged about 10 years while making it. We still think it was worth the trouble. Not seeing any sunshine or daylight for a long time, we can't wait to go on tour in August and play the new stuff live."
