    Industrial pioneers My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult have announced a 2023 US tour, featuring support from electronic duo ADULT. and underground pop artist KANGA.

    The initial spring leg of the outing, dubbed the “Evil Eye Tour,” will focus on the Western half of the States, kicking off May 14th in Mesa, Arizona, and running through a June 3rd show in San Diego, California. Fans can pick up tickets via StubHub or individual venue links listed at the band’s website.

    Update, March 8th: A second fall leg has also been announced, running from October 19th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, through November 4th in Chicago. These dates will mostly hit markets in the Midwest and across the East Coast. A Live Nation pre-sale begins Thursday (March 9th) via Ticketmaster using the code OPENER.


    The shows will focus heavily on My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult’s Wax Trax and Interscope years (1987-1997), highlighting the group’s transition from industrial rock to electronic dance music. The band still features original members Groovie Mann and Buzz McCoy, who founded the Chicago outfit in 1987.

    In the early ’90s, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult scored Billboard Dance Club hits with such songs as “Sexplosion!,” “Sex on Wheelz” and “Blue Buddha.”
