Laibach Plots Rare U.S. Appearances
- Words: Maverick Newberry
Slovenian industrial outfit Laibach has made a career of revealing militant social commentary through art and attire, and for the band's Volk release last year, the members looked to various nations' national anthems and crafted a dark album of geopolitical commentary (For further indication of how sinister this album is, check the track "America," which opens with abrupt gunshot noises).
The avant-garde group will bring its controversial songs Stateside this fall, with a very brief and very rare set of tour dates around North America. Cross your fingers that mysterious visa issues don't arise beforehand, as they so often do in cases like these.
