[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” av-medium-font-size=” av-small-font-size=” av-mini-font-size=” admin_preview_bg=”] Pendulum, have today announced the release of the next instalment from their upcoming remix album – with Bristol duo Icarus remix taking on their their legendary production ‘Tarantula’.
The release follows on from previous Noisia and Knife Party remixes and further teases what fans can expect from the album. The band marked their return for 2018 with a recent headline performance at London’s iconic Printworks venue – their first headline show in 7 years. Set to headline the BBC Radio 1 Stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals in August, the band have also announced a series of live shows across Australia in June and July – their first in 8 years.
Available today,the Icarus remix of ‘Tarantula’ sees the original (16 million Spotify streams)’s reggae-tinged chords replaced by a more rumbling tech-house feel, and follows the Bristolian duo’s huge hits ‘King Kong’ and ‘Trouble’ – which were both named as BBC Radio 1’s ‘Record of the Week’ following support from Annie Mac, Danny Howard, and Pete Tong.
Taken from the upcoming album‘The Reworks’; a project unlike any other released by the band before – Pendulum tap into some of the most innovative talents from over the past few years to deliver dynamic and refreshing interpretations of their biggest hits and some of their personal favourites.
This release follows Noisia’s explosive cut of ‘Hold Your Colour’ and precedes the 29th June release of ‘The Reworks’, which also contains interpretations from the likes of Skrillex, Moby, DJ Seinfeld and Matrix & Futurebound. ‘The Reworks’ album will be available in both CD and vinyl formats from the 29th June, and there will also be a very special limited run of the ‘Complete Works Deluxe’ packages. The Deluxe will be presented in a holographic laser cut box featuring the bands logo and include the 4 albums on vinyl alongside a 4 CD photo booklet focusing on the bands key moments and memories; from the history of their inception, highlights of their decade-plus spanning career, right through to the present day.
The box set will see Pendulum’s first three studio albums completely remastered – the first time the albums will be available in this format, as fans will remember that ‘Hold Your Colour’ was originally a 6 track album of non-singles, whilst In Silico was originally a 4 track EP, making these boxes incredibly rare.
This exciting announcement marks the beginning of a new era for Pendulum, who have long been considered one of electronic music’s most important and pioneering acts, famed for their no-holds-barred live shows. With more huge festival dates TBA across the summer and new originals on the horizon, 2018 marks the an exciting chapter in Pendulum’s already lengthy career.
