Crash Course In Science replaces The Cassandra Complex on BIMFEST 2017

Unfortunately, today we have some bad news for you ... :'(
But thankfully some of good news too! :P
 

Let's start with the bad news. Some days ago we received a message from The Cassandra Complex saying they have cancel their performance at BIMFEST 2017 due to the illness of one of their musicians. Sad, but health comes first so of course we wish him a lot of strength and a quick recovery! 
 

Now the the good news is ...
With a cancellation, there should always follow a new confirmation! And so, we are very pleased to announce that we have been able to convince the American Electro / Industrial pioneers CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE to replace The Cassandra Complex on our BIMFEST!

CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE is the band who’s responsible for one of the most played and acclaimed 12”’s of the 80's, Signals From Pier Thirteen, featuring dance floor-fillers such as Cardboard Lamb and Flying Turns.

CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE rebooted in 2009 with a stunning and thrilling come-back performance on BIMFEST2009. Since, this trio has been back on track and returned regular with an European tour. In 2015, for example, they also played at a sold out night at De Casino with (A Split-Second and Simi Nah). So if you want see them this time, you better order your tickets right now!

New single by Kirlian Camera featuring Covenant singer Eskil Simonsson!

New single by Kirlian Camera featuring Covenant singer Eskil Simonsson!

"Sky Collapse" is the overture of a storm to come. Not only it's the first single from the Kirlian Camera new album "Hologram Moon", but also a dark song about worrying skies and disquieting scenarios. Moreover, it marks the collaboration between two of the most distinguished names in the dark electronic world, in fact Kirlian Camera are at work for the first time with Swedish electronic icon Eskil Simonsson of Covenant on the opening version of the track, which is a duet between singers Elena Alice Fossi and Eskil Simonsson. The song was written and produced by Elena Alice Fossi and Angelo Bergamini, mixed by legend producer John Fryer.

Kirlian Camera: “Sky Collapse” is memories from a recent hard period, when any possible light seemed to turn into deep darkness as if everything was definitely lost. The words of Reverend Jim Jones in the beginning of the song are a clear guidance to that disquieting world (Peoples Temple's leader Jim Jones committed suicide along with 1000 followers in Guyana, 1978: the biggest mass suicide in the recent history of America). 

The sky looked as if it were collapsed, exactly, when... an unexpected ray of hope started shining in a doomy evening. So we are here, today, to describe quite an ordeal with simple words and “dance on all those ruins”, whether they are the past we briefly mentioned above or a hard future we'll have to face. We always perceived a connection with Eskil Simonsson's Covenant, so... this meeting each other on these strange roads, today, is just a natural effect of such research in music and beyond."

Dependent: "Their collaboration culminates in one of the finest electronic singles we released in some time; that's why we bet so many DJs will play this EP's A-side in heavy rotation, so due to the force of the song, the wonderful remix and the B-Side titles, this item is going to be an outstanding presence in every dark electronic record collection. And this is just the overture to KCs forthcoming album "Hologram Moon" to be released this year as well!"

The 4 track EP/Single will be released on October 20th 2017.

Kirlian Camera cooperate with Covenant and announce new album

The Italian cult electronic outfit KIRLIAN CAMERA is putting finishing touches on their new studio album “Hologram Moon”, which promises to an exceptional piece of work. In advance, there will be a single titled "Sky Collapse", a collaborative effort with COVENANT frontman Eskil Simonsson, who also took to the microphone for one of the two club versions.

The Swedes and the Italians had already shared a stage earlier on and created quite a stir in doing so (Scroll down to watch the video).

We are curious about how this joint venture will sound. "Sky Collapse" comes out in October, and collector can look forward to a limited vinyl edition.

Kirliam Camera is headlining our BIMFEST 2017 on Friday 15th December!

New Blancmange album 'Unfurnished Rooms' due for 29th September!

New Blancmange album 'Unfurnished Rooms' due for 29th September!

On 29th September, Blancmange are set to release a new album written and recorded by Neil Arthur and co-produced by Benge (Wrangler/John Foxx & The Maths and Gazelle Twin co-producer). They say it’s been a fantastically creative period for both of them, releasing their debut album as a new electronic duo – Fader’s 'First Light' - in June 2017 and then the final sessions for Unfurnished Rooms followed immediately in the summer. 

For the new Blancmange album, all the songs were written by Arthur while Benge added percussion and layers of analogue synth, with the pair then mixing the record together in the latter’s Memetune studios in Cornwall. 'Don't Get Me Wrong' features John Grant on piano and backing vocals. It’s said to be a fantastic closing track on a record which explores some solitary, introspective thoughts but always with humor and compassion.

Blancmange will play as our Saturday headliner on December 15th.
