Austrian crossover legends KONTRUST are finally back after nine long years with their highly awaited new studio album, entitled „madworld“. The massively energetic full-length will be released on November 3rd, 2023. In 2022, the band once more showcased their eruptive live potential on the main stages of some of the biggest European festivals, such as Graspop Metal Meeting, Hellfest Open Air, Barcelona Rockfest and Resurrection Fest. After nearly a decade, KONTRUST make a stand with a revitalized line-up and groundbreaking fifth studio album.

On madworld, KONTRUST stick to their lively, playful and experimental signature style, ready to entertain old and new audiences alike. Without a shadow of a doubt, KONTRUST are one of the most extravagant and exciting acts in the scene, and have enthralled fans and critics alike with an inimitable sense of fusing various genres like reggae, pop and dance with heavy hard rock and metal riffs, spliced with their very own way of representing the roots of their home country. This synthesis of styles has brought them not only notable chart entries for several releases, but also high recognition in the form of the “AMADEUS Austrian Music Award”.

Their colorful style, impressive combination of genres and unique fun factor made the band an attention grabbing veteran on the biggest international stages. Among many others, they played the Przystanek Woodstock festival in Poland in front of over 300.000 people and set a new record for the largest audience ever played by an Austrian artist.

Throughout their two decade-spanning career, the Austrian based outfit has gained millions and millions of YouTube views on their exciting music videos, with over 15 million views on the electrifying hits “Hey DJ!” and “Bomba” alone. With their new album, madworld, KONTRUST prove their standing as an unpredictable force in the scene – always hungry, wild and full of surprises, and ready to exceed everything they have achieved so far!
