Pendulum just announced their first new music since Immersion.
The wait is finally over… Pendulum, one of the most iconic electronic acts of all time, are now ready to reveal their first brand new music since the UK No. 1 album, Immersion. Landing as a double A-side, the two tracks include the massive halftime track, “Nothing For Free,” featuring classic vocals from frontman Rob Swire, and a mighty DnB anthem, “Driver.”
“We’ve been working on some new tracks for a while now and it’s great to finally get them out,” Rob Swire said. “We’d been playing exclusive previews of some of the new music at shows in Australia and New Zealand before lockdown, and we’ve been making tweaks along the way to make sure they’re right.”
While summer events are on hold this year, Pendulum have still managed to retain their headliner status across the globe, topping the bill at the prestigious SW4 festival in London in 2019, as well as Ultra Japan and New Zealand’s Electric Avenue with the awe-inspiring new Trinity production. “Trinity just seemed like the perfect touring model for us right now, it gives us the freedom to test out our new music on the road as we did in the early days, whilst still being able to headline the biggest events and bring a huge, bespoke new show to our audiences,” continues Swire.
The artwork, designed by Rob Swire also doubles up as a phenakistoscope, an animated design that turns the static images into moving pictures when played on a 45rpm record player and viewed through a phone camera at 25fps.
With fans counting down the days until release, a brand new era for Pendulum has officially begun.
