Nitzer Ebb founder and electronic music pioneer Douglas J. McCarthy is prepping to release his debut solo album Kill Your Friends and is letting you preview it before it drops February 18th. While McCarthy has been quite busy balancing tour life with his personal life, he still managed to create perhaps the most comprehensive debut album I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. When asked about the influences behind Kill Your Friends McCarthy said it, “represents a cross section of my musical history from my teens till now.” Right he is as the sounds and lyrics take you from the beginnings of electronic music to today. Preview Kill Your Friends above then be sure to pre-order your copy of the album from iTunes. Enjoy!
