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. 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. Its 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 cant wait to go on tour in August and play the new stuff live. II will be released worldwide on Monkeytown Records. For the US & Canada Monkeytown Records are proudly partnering with the legendary independent label Mute Records.As the first upfront single Moderat have chosen the enchanting Bad Kingdom, a song that perfectly unites the 2 main musical elements of the project: Pop & Club.
