“Blood, brains, massacre.” With these gentle words, hard-hitting electronic innovator Tommi Stumpff resumed the journey he had embarked upon in the early 1980s. Adding metallic guitars to the mix and assembling an all-star backing crew, the infamous Düsseldorf legend is on the warpath once again. Edgy and uncompromising as ever, the former KFC frontman hit the stage in 2015 for the first time in 22 years to herald in the re-release of his increasingly hard-to-find classic albums.

Having achieved cult status in the 80s and 90s with seven studio albums and dancefloor hits like “13 Minuten Massaker,” Stumpff bade farewell to the music scene back in 1993. Now, after 22 long years, during which time his output only grew in popularity, he’s back with a brand-new twist: ELECTRO-METAL. Slinging on his Flying V and teaming up with Rüdiger Schuster, himself a renowned artist on the German industrial scene, Stumpff’s stage performance is heavier than ever before. Having already made a big splash since his return in 2015, Stumpff is ready with never-heard-before material alongside new versions of classic tracks to titillate his broad existing fanbase – and pick up some new supporters along the way.
