23042014 | ***Silent Running Flash Sale***

Hey!

The Silent Running digital download plus bonus e.p is just £3.50 until next week in celebration of coming live shows on Sunday. That’s a ton of weird sci-fi music, right there.

You can get it RIGHT HERE.

Because we self-released this, all of this money goes direct to us, which makes a change, huh? Be great if you help us out/share this around.

Cheers!

14042014 | European Show Creep 2014

65_tourThe greatest thing to happen to us last week was finding out that we’re gonna be playing either directly before or after the incendiary Atari Teenage Riot at Sonisphere this year. That’s gonna be amazing.

The greatest thing to happen to us this week is that we are going on tour again, but the second greatest thing is probably that we get to announce more shows we have coming up, including our first ever shows in Slovakia and Romania.

The newly announced ones are below, but you can find all the other shows and ticket links RIGHT HERE.

And so, like a less nefarious NATO, we venture East… 65z.

24032014 | Taipei / Drone Not Drones Redux

Hi again!

The next single from Wild Light, Taipei, is out now. You can buy it here, which we would recommend, if possible, because it comes with a brand new b-side, called ‘Drone Not Drones’.

65_taipei_500px

We wrote DroneNotDrones last year, shortly after finishing Wild Light. In the interim, it turns out that somebody took this idea and ran much further with it, which we feel we ought to acknowledge. The idea, after all, is a bit more important than a sloganeering song title: dronenotdrones.com.

Again, we don’t pretend to be in any way connected with this project, but it seems like something worth supporting to us. Drone is great; drones are murderous. Here’s the song:

There has been some debate behind the scenes about whether streaming a whole track makes people more or less likely to buy it. We’ve been fighting a lonely battle out of 65HQ – we maintain that in this crazy world of infinite free music, getting people to spend even just 79p on a song they haven’t heard is harder than getting them to spend 79p on a song that they *have* heard (assuming they like it).

So for this song, if you can spare the 79p to buy it on iTunes or 7digital or probably some other places (?) it would be really appreciated by the four of us here in 65.

1 | Taipei Single / Drone Not Drones

Good day.

The next single from Wild Light will be the Taipei, a song we first conceived in the city it’s named after. It’ll be released on 23rd March via Superball Records, coupled with the b-side ‘DroneNotDrones’.

The single will be available in digital format only, so don’t go legging it to your nearest independent record store to get a copy. There’s apparently no link to a pre-order though, which is weird. It’s almost as if… no. Never mind. We’re able to stream Drone Not Drones from next week though, so let’s meet back here then, yeah?

2 | About to go on tour again

Right, so, there’s a bunch of dates coming. The *only* UK Fall of Math show (this is where we are playing two sets, the first being our debut album in its entirety), is the Koko show, London. This is sold out, so apologies for that. There’s a few European FOM shows though. So you can always come to them instead. Also, there is a very good chance that we will be airing some of the rarer tracks off that record during the shows either side of this.

Remember, Thought Forms are main support for all shows (UK and Europe), with the exception of Koko, where support comes from the equally-excellent Nathan Fake, Brighton, where support comes from Phoria, and the two Silent Running Live Soundtrack performances, which are part of the Convergence Festival. So these spring dates are now looking like this:

1 | Silent Running Redux

It’s been a while since we last played mournful synthesisers over Bruce Dern playing poker with some robots, so we figured it might be about time to bring the project back to life.

After all, loads of people bought the soundtrack record but only a few people (relatively) can have ever seen the whole thing performed in context, right? So we’re doing TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY at Convergence Festival, in London, both on 27th April. It’s not a big room, so we don’t know how long tickets will be available for this.

More info HERE. Line-up also includes Fuck Buttons and Ben Frost. Nice.

The record is still available digitally through our digital store HERE. Who knows, if this goes well we might re-press an edition of the vinyl. Listen to ‘Burial Scene’ from the soundtrack below:

2 | The Fall of Math on Vinyl

In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of our debut album and the now sold-out Fall of Math show at Koko this March, Monotreme Records is making the record available on sweet, pure, heavyweight vinyl, in a limited pressing of one thousand.


This is available to pre-order right now through the Monotreme Records Webstore and comes with a CD copy of the record and download codes for the associated Hole EP and Retreat Retreat b-sides and video, as well as a poster. A very generous package as we’re sure you’ll agree.

We hope to have these available at all regular and anniversary shows this spring, but the pre-order is going fast so it might be worth not waiting around to find out if it sells out or not.

3 | March/April UK/Europe shows

Right, so, there’s a bunch of spring dates in March/April around the UK and Europe. We need to stress that the *only* UK Fall of Math show (this is where we are playing two sets, the first being our debut album in its entirety), is the Koko show, London. This is sold out, so apologies for that. HOWEVER, there is a very good chance that we will be airing some of the rarer tracks off that record during the shows either side of this.

We’re very happy to announce that the excellent Thought Forms are main support for all shows (UK and Europe), with the exception of Koko, where support comes from the equally-excellent Nathan Fake. These spring dates in full look like this:

If that wasn’t enough 65, there’s new t-shirt designs up in our online store for those of you who like wearing t-shirts. There’s other stuff as well, like Wild Light on clear vinyl, for those of you who don’t. Here’s one of the new designs with a satellite on that we particularly like:

More news to come. We’re not done with Wild Light yet. 65daysofstatic x
