65DaysofStatic Announce Deluxe Album Release with Bonus EP; featuring Robert Smith of The Cure
British electronic-infused post-rock faves 65DaysofStatic announce the North American release of their latest album, We Were Exploding Anyway in a special deluxe edition that also features the recent Heavy Sky EP. The expanded set will only be released in North America and hits stores on 2xCD, LP and digital download on October 25th,2011 via Monotreme Records.
Audacious, disregarding of former glories, We Were Exploding Anyway is 65days anew. This is not a rock band with a bit of glitch on the side, all guitars with the slightest semblance of
high-BPM beat-craft as underlay; it’s a not-so-distant dance party, the purest euphoria as earworms that dig deep and nestle tight. It’s an arms-aloft salute to the thrill of letting yourself go in the tide, and riding that rush ’til it leaves you breathless but so prepared to go around again.
We Were Exploding Anyway is a game-changer from a band that has only ever followed its own rules, and now they’re broken. Don’t pick up the pieces. Leave them. Dance over them. This time, and for all time.
The deluxe 2-CD edition includes bonus 7-track Heavy Sky CD EP. Vinyl edition is heavyweight 180 gm vinyl (dark blue and white versions) and includes a free copy of the album CD, poster and digital download coupon for the Heavy Sky EP.
Rock Sound had this to say about the album: “Ever unafraid to shoot for the stars, 65’s fourth album retains the skyscraping elegance of their past work but infuses the familiar guitar-based noise with a heftier dose of electronica. ‘Come To Me’ features former tourbuddy Robert ‘The Cure’ Smith on vocals but chopped up as if it was just another sample – there aren’t many bands brave enough to do that and ever fewer who pull it off with so much style.”
