A Christmas message from Klaxons
2010 saw Klaxons release their long awaited second album, and terrify those of a nervous disposition, mainly staff at Youtube, with that slimy video. Now, having successfully asserted themselves as the leading Jake and Dinos Chapman-esque exhibitionists of post-nu-rave, they’re giving their fans a free EP on Christmas Day!
A statement from the band explains:
“There are periods of time that we have spent together as a band that the only suitable word that comes close to describing them is "Magical".
The three nocturnal weeks spent at Black Box studio in 2008 under the loving guidance of James Ford was undeniably the point where the magic was peaking.
Tales of "Talking Dogs", "A Rotten Apple named Mr Tabernacle", "The Grid", "Numerous Synchronic and Celestial Moments" and "Rejection" followed but what has remained hidden until this day is the music.
Sometimes the only way to let a story release it's full power and potential is to offer it up to the universe - so here it is – ‘Landmarks of Lunacy’.
It's time to let the music do the talking.
The 2008 material may, or may not, throw some light on what was going on in the gap between albums, but will certainly be a welcome alternative to the Queen’s speech for Klaxons fans. The download will be available on Christmas Day via Klaxons.net
The "Landmarks of Lunacy EP" track listing is as follows:
1. The Pale Blue Dot
2. Silver Forest
3. Ivy Leaves
5. Marble Field
