Kraftwerk to release a "3D album" later this year

Oh, damn it! Well, this just FIGURES!

Like, literally no freakin’ sooner do I finish selling my Blu-ray player and vast, vast (VAST) collection of Darkwing Duck, Ducktales, Gummy Bears, TaleSpin, Goof Troop, and Bonkers DVDs so I can afford a ticket to their “3D” tour of North America this fall (which will feature all sorts of surround-sound gimmicks and 3D imagery all synced-up to the music and shit) than my BROS in the rad and up-and-coming Beach-tronica band Kraftwerk announce (via Rolling Stone) that they’ve “translated [their] performances to 3D, and in surround sound, kind of like 3D sound” and have been “working on a Blu-Ray to make this available” for the fall.

Oh, cruel fate! I’m SO being driving MAD by the HEAVY IRONY of all this! Seriously, though. Kinda blows. Here’s the full text of what sole-surviving original Krafwerkian Ralf Hütter had to say:

We’ve been doing this and working on a Blu-ray to make this available. It should be coming out in the late fall. We’ve put a lot of work into all the images, transforming from our Kling Klang archives into 3D format and arranging it synchronized with the music, so it’s quite a lot of production. We’re quite a small team of musicians, technicians, computer programmers here at Kling Klang Studios; we do everything ourselves. That’s what we’ve been working in, and still are. When we travel to America, we’ll hopefully be finished with this work.

No more details at the moment, but LUCKY YOU if you didn’t already spend an emphatically NON-ROBOTIC arm and a leg on tickets to this heretofore-unique concert experience. Oh well… I guess I’d better start selling some shit now to save for the Blu-ray.

Hmm… let’s see… Anyone here wanna buy a Kraftwerk ticket??
