I don’t know much of anything about the acid house or techno genres, but I’ve been to enough parties to know that Lords of Acid are an incredibly energetic and sexually charged group with intoxicating and infectious tunes. I’ve listened to all of their previously released albums, but I’m most familiar with Voodoo-U, and I actually go back to listen to it every once in a while.
So, it’s with a little bit of nostalgic pride to announce that Lords of Acid will release their new album, Pretty in Kink, on May 18th, via Metropolis Records. Check out the teaser tracks, “So Goddamn Good” and “Goldfinger” here and here and let us know what you think in our comments section below.

About Lords of Acid:
From his first single, “I Sit On Acid,” released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the Lords of Acid to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release Lust to the electro-thrash of 2012’s Deep Chills, Lords of Acid has redefined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for 30 years. Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases.
