MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE – the ski mask-wearing techno/rap/punk crew releases a new song called “Ruder than Croc,” which also features LOS FASTIDIOS and their frontwoman Elisa Dixan. This is the second single for the band’s upcoming 4th studio album “Radio Hope”. The album will be released on vinyl, CD and digitally in fall 2023 via Fire and Flames Music (Germany) and Rebel Sound Records (USA).
The new track marks the first time that MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE have incorporated female vocals into their music. Elisa Dixan’s clear vocals balance out the MDB MCs’ usual aggressive rap flow. As befits many of MDB and LOS FASTIDIOS’s anthems, the track also features powerful chants and singalongs performed by both crews, including LF frontman Enrico – something that live show-goers look forward to and that they should sing along! Musically, the track falls within the rave, synthpop and disco categories, marking a departure from the EDM and big beat sounds of the previous single.
On August 31, 2023, MDB released a video from the first release of the new album, “Bass of Doom” feat. Hoya Roc by MADBALL.
“Ruder than Croc” streaming:
The upcoming album “Radio Hope” will feature 10 tracks that double down on the electronic sound and aggressive rapping the band is known for. However, the band makes up for this with more melodic themes and the use of acoustic guitars in the mixes, while also adding powerful female vocals to bring the whole thing together. For the first time, MDB are bringing a variety of artists onto their tracks. From New York hardcore legend Hoya Roc (formerly MADBALL), to Elisa Dixan (LOS FASTIDIOS) and others.
The first part of the album release tour (Destiny Tourbooking) in autumn 2023 will bring the MDB sound to 16 concerts, primarily in Germany, with further dates announced for 2024.
