Klaxons leak their classified footage of extraterrestrial life as the video for 'Show me A Miracle', beamed down by directors Alex Lee and Kyle Wightman (Iggy Azalea, Ta-Ku, Foster The People, Angel Haze). After watching this, we'll definitely be listing The Church of Klaxons as our religious affiliation in the next census.
Modular release 'Love Frequency', Klaxon's 3rd album produced with James Murphy, Erol Alkan, Gorgon City and Chemical Brothers' Tom Rowlands, on Friday 13 June.
British rave revivalists Klaxons unveil their subversive album art, tracklist and pumped up new track Atom To Atom, as we edge closer to the release of album #3 Love Frequency.
It's easy to forget that Klaxons have been charming hearts and minds since 2007 when they erupted into the cosmos with a then pioneering dance/indie hybrid that led to awards, glory and a trail of ravaged venues the world over. They turned darker with 2010's Surfing The Void, and the new swagger of Love Frequency tasters (BBC Radio 1's A-listed There Is No Other Time, plus Children of the Sun) shows a further evolution.
The June-released album features production from Gorgon City, the Chemical Brothers' Tom Rowlands, Erol Alkan, and James Murphy, and was recorded throughout 2013. See the tracklisting below.
Klaxons released a new single earlier this year, the Radio 1 play-listed There Is No Other Time, and we just got the fancy new video for it. Georgia Hudson (Midlake, MØ) stepped up to the director's spot to create the nightclub meets scenic dream-scape clip! We like it.
After sharing their new singles There Is No Other Time and the accompanying A-side track, Children Of The Sun, Klaxons have this week let the world know their third studio album, Love Frequency, will be released this 30 May (Aus).
The follow-up to 2010's Surfing the Void features production from Gordon City, the Chemical Brothers' Tow Rowlands, Erol Alkan, and James Murphy, and was recorded throughout 2013.
Klaxons are awakening. After a stint out of the spotlight they've returned with two new tracks - the clipped disco-tinged 'There is No Other Time' and the widescreen swagger of 'Children of the Sun'. And of course, they were just announced as one of the first headliners for this year's blissful island escape in Croatia, FOR Festival - taking place on Hvar island in Croatia from June 19th-22nd.
They've also provided us with some choice mixes over the past few years, including the 'Klaxons Acid Disko Mix', 33 minutes of audio primer for the best Summer of our lives.
You can pick up tickets to see Klaxons, DARKSIDE, Mark Ronson (DJ set), Erol Alkan, Factory Floor, Kelela and many more at FOR Festival here.
The new Klaxons album will be out later this year via Modular.
Following Klaxons big reentrance with 'There Is No Other Time', the band reveal the single's flipside 'Children of the Sun', a calling produced by Chemical Brother Tom Rowlands. Both tracks will be released together next month, paving the way for Klaxons' third studio album due to drop mid-year.
Klaxons new single 'There Is No Other Time' premiered in a worldwide exclusive play just hours ago via BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe. Here it is in case you snoozed...
Not only is 'There Is No Other Time' classic Klaxons at their best, it's also a collaboration with Gorgon City, the English electronic music production duo currently making serious waves. Excitingly, the track offers a new sound for the Mercury Prize & multiple NME Award winners.
This first taste of new music from the British indie rockers since their 2010 released 'Surfing The Void' album, signals a big 2014 for Klaxons, a year which includes a forthcoming new album due for a mid-year release. The album also sees the band work with Tom Rowlands of the Chemical Brothers, Erol Alkan and James Murphy.
Further news of the new album & live shows for 2014 will follow shortly.
