After 3 albums, 3 EPs, numerous remix appearances and over 100 live shows up to date, Alter der Ruine and ProNoize are ready to show Europe what they can do. America’s flagship in terms of Industrial has finally made it across the Atlantic. “This Is Why We Can not Have Nice Things“ contains their best songs which were only available in USA yet. Merciless, loud, quirky, a bit gaga and refreshingly different. The limited edition includes a bonus CD with mixes from Aesthetic Perfection, Haujobb, Noisuf-X and Assemblage 23. Released on ProNoize and available April 1st, 2010.
