Wax Trax! is back in business and is set to release a 12" single from the Chris Connelly/Jason Novak project Cocksure in mid-June. The single "TKO Mindfuck" features guest vocals from Richard 23 (Front 242), and perhaps even another "special friend." The three track single will be released on vinyl and as a digital download, plus a limited edition colored vinyl version will also be available to pre-order exclusively from the Wax Trax! store in May. According to Wax Trax! website:
"Cocksure have managed to create a wonderful world smeared with dirt, piss, and the loving caress from an old “special friend”. These guys have successfully returned to the dark place that got us all addicted in the first place. If you have ever been a fan of these fine fellows, Cocksure won’t disappoint."
The label also announced that fans can expect more limited edition releases from new and established artists within the Wax Trax! family in the future, plus progress is being made on the long awaited Wax Trax! documentary which is "getting close to the end of our filming, then it's into the editing room."
