NSW industrial punk project Schkeuditzer Kreuz are premiering their new single Ratchet via HEAVY this Monday, capitalising on the momentum built from previous releases Joy and Second Life.

All three tracks are taken from Schkeuditzer Kreuz’s album No Life Left, which came out in the last part of 2023, with Ratchet being the most diverse and eclectic representation of an album full of moods and atmospherics.

Kieren Hills, the creative force behind Schkeuditzer Kreuz, joined HEAVY this afternoon to chat about the new music.

“It’s probably the most upbeat and poppier kind of songs, which is not really saying much,” he smiled when asked about Ratchet. “It’s all heavily distorted synth of various different kinds with industrial percussion and drumbeats. Lyrically, it’s another song about how fucked in the head I am, basically (laughs).

In the full interview, Kieren runs us through Ratchet in greater detail, talks about the creepy but awesome music video, how Ratchet differs to the previous two singles, how they represent No Life Left musically, the term Industrial Synth Crust and what it translates to, upcoming shows and more.
