Pendulum Ready to Swing Towards North America; Australian Bass Rockers Announce U.S. Live Debut at Upcoming Coachella Festival; Internationally Acclaimed Band Unleash New Single, “Propane Nightmares,”
NEW YORK, NY–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – Ear Storm/Atlantic Records has announced the
upcoming release of “IN SILICO,” the North American debut album from
Pendulum. Already a sensation in the UK and the band’s native Australia,
the album — highlighted by the single, “Propane Nightmares” — arrives on
these shores on May 13th.
The Perth-based outfit has been hailed for its hard-edged amalgamation of
drum ‘n’ bass beats, massive guitars, and powerhouse hooks. American
audiences will get their first sample of Pendulum’s brave new rock ‘n’ roll
when the band makes its U.S. live debut at the Coachella Valley Music and
Arts Festival on Friday, April 25th. Additional North American concert
dates will be announced shortly.
Pendulum’s new single, “Propane Nightmares,” will be available at all
digital retailers beginning on April 14th. The track’s companion video
clip has been named a MySpace Featured Video Exclusive, and can be viewed
at the band’s own www.myspace.com/officialpendulum page. The clip is
already featured as “Spanking New” across all MTV Networks in the UK.
A major UK tour is slated for May, with most dates already sold out.
Pendulum will then spend the summer rocking festivals all over the world,
including DJ sets at a variety of dance-oriented gatherings and full-band
extravaganzas at such internationally known festies as the UK’s annual
Reading & Leeds 2008, Download, Bestival and more (check www.pendulum.com
for complete tour information).
Since its formation in 2002, Pendulum has caused quite the stir in both the
hard rock and dance music communities around the world. The band’s 2005
debut, “HOLD YOUR COLOUR,” was an international breakout success, with UK
sales alone in excess of 225,000. Pendulum’s innovative sonic approach has
earned the band comparisons to such visionary artists as Led Zeppelin,
Queens of the Stone Age, and Tool.
“Granite,” a featured track on “IN SILICO,” proved a true sensation upon
its release as a single last November. Fueled by major BBC Radio airplay,
the track topped the UK’s Dance chart while also reaching the top 30 on the
overall Singles tally.
Pendulum also earned a barrage of critical approbation. “Pendulum are only
expressing what lies at the heart of many a fan of harder dance music — a
secret love, past or present, of heavy rock,” noted DJ Magazine, while the
Sun praised the band as “the Prodigy for the Noughties.” Q Magazine
agreed, declaring, “There’s a strong whiff of vintage Prodigy about this
bullish Aussie dance crew with a serious guitar fetish.” No less an
authority than the venerable Kerrang! summed it up: “Pendulum have that
intriguing cross-over appeal that will make them superstars.”
