Long-running German metallers Atrocity will release a new two-song download single on 11 January, and according to vocalist Alex Krull, "Smalltown Boy turned out to be hymn-like, catchy and melodic whereas Relax has become a real monster song!"

"Smalltown Boy" and "Relax" come off Atrocity's long-awaited new album, "Werk 80 II", which is scheduled for release on 29 February 2008. Like the first "Werk 80" release, which came out in 1997, "Werk 80 II" features Atrocity's interpretations of hit songs from the '80s.

"Werk 80 II" tracklisting:

01. People Are People (Depeche Mode)
02. Smalltown Boy (Bronski Beat)
03. Relax (Frankie Goes To Hollywood)
04. Don't You (Forget About Me) (Simple Minds)
05. The Sun Always Shines on TV (A-Ha)
06. Hey Little Girl (Icehouse)
07. Fade To Grey (Visage)
08. Such A Shame (Talk Talk)
09. Keine Heimat (Ideal)
10. Here Comes The Rain Again (Eurythmics)
11. Forever Young (Alphaville)
12. Feels Like Heaven (Fiction Factory) [Limited Edition bonus]

Fans will get a chance to preview the songs on "Werk 80 II" one track at a time everyday on Atrocity's homepage beginning on 1 January 2008 and ending on the single's release date.

World-famous burlesque dancer and Marilyn Manson's estranged wife Dita Von Teese is the cover model on "Werk 80 II".

It sounds quite interesting, though I'm not a cover-album lover...

There's a bunch of songs I'm not familiar with, but the ones I do know, I'm curious to see Atrocity's take on it. Particularly "Here Comes The Rain Again."

Sounds really interesting. Wait and see...

Haha, it's always a surprise to see how they cover these 80's pop songs. I'm waiting for it.
