PENDULUM – Video for new single ‘The Island’
aaamusic | On 02, Sep 2010
Pendulum’s hectic summer schedule has already included a hugely diverse range of major festival appearances such as Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Sonisphere and major outdoor shows with The Prodigy and Tiesto. They will follow their imminent NME / Radio 1 Stage headlining sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals with the release of the new single ‘The Island’ on September 20th on Earstorm / Warner Bros. Records.
Watch the video for The Island:
In keeping with ‘The Island’ theme, Pendulum will embark upon a whistlestop Balearic Islands tour in September. Supported by Sub Focus, Pendulum will play the inaugural Majorca Rocks on September 6th before returning for one of their now infamous Ibiza Rocks shows the following day.
The sprawling two-part, nine-minute centrepiece of their #1 album ‘Immersion’, ‘The Island’ flows from its atmospheric, cinematic introduction into a visceral attack of grinding beats and venomous synths. ‘The Island’ also represents an invigorating example of their prog & bass sound that has emerged from the band’s constant desire to expand their musical palette.
The single’s full nine-minute version will be released as an exclusive iTunes bundle, while a radio edit will also be available as well as a DJ edit of ‘Part II’. Remixes come courtesy of Tiesto and Dutch drum & bass producer Lenzman. The CD version will include the remixes, the original and radio edit.
Pendulum second major live experience in the UK this year follows their sold-out tour in May that included a landmark show at London’s Wembley Arena. The ‘Immersion’ tour, scheduled as below, sees Pendulum playing bigger dates than ever before and features special guests Hadouken!
