Pendulum swing back in to action
PENDULUM made one of the biggest breakthroughs of recent years with their hit album In Silico. Having sold over 1 million records worldwide, the band completed a sell-out Academy tour in 2008 and went on to smash the international festival circuit last summer with killer appearances at Glastonbury, Download, V and Global Gathering to name a few. Both Pendulum studio albums to date – In Silico and the band’s debut Hold Your Colour – have gone Platinum.
Now they’re back with their most visceral and enthralling work with the album Immersion that’s set for release on May 24th. The first taster of the album will be the single ‘Watercolour’ that’s due for release on May 3rd.
‘Watercolour’ heralds a glorious evolution in the Pendulum sound. Now utilising a richer sonic tapestry than ever before, the sublime ‘Watercolour’ finds Rob Swire’s vocals alternating between eerie distortion and full-blooded energy amidst flourishes of horns and an atmospheric, tension building breakdown. The track’s progressive structure highlight’s Pendulum’s growing strength in constructing contrasting dynamics.
Already one of the most anticipated albums of 2010, the excitement building around Immersion escalated following Pendulum’s exclusive album preview DJ set at their EAR STORM night at London’s Matter in January. The set was streamed live to an audience of 200,000, with a total of 350,000 people interacting with the content on the day.
