Innerpartysystem, whose Never Be Content mini-album (Red Bull Records) hit #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart in the US earlier this year, have announced the release of their new single ‘Not Getting Any Better’. The release will coincide with the band’s just-announced performances at Sonisphere and Wakestock Festivals in July. They are currently in the US playing shows with electronic musician/producer Skrillex and will be at the Global Dance Festival on July 14th. One of the most exciting live bands in the electronic world, Innerpartysystem hand-manipulates loops and effects live on stage with such technical and improvisational prowess that each show is bound to be a mind-blowing pinnacle of electronic bliss. With live drums, live mixing and a mesmerizing light show, it’s a full-on dance party that you won’t want to miss. Drummer / programmer Jared Piccone is looking forward to what is set to be a blazing trip to the UK –
“We can’t believe it’s going to be our 3rd time back to the UK this year already. It’s our home away from home. Just to be sure we don’t wear out our welcome, we come baring gifts! We are very pleased to finally unleash a song that has been in the works for quite some time, “Not Getting Any Better”, along with remixes from some of our favourite producers.
We are also very pleased we get to be a part of a phenomenon that the UK is known for doing the best, the festival season! There’s nothing like playing in front of the amount of people you get to at a festival. We cannot wait to be a part of this year’s Sonisphere festival alongside so many great artists, as well as Wakestock and Slam Dunk.”
New single and electro gem ‘Not Getting Any Better’ has everything you could ever ask for in an electronic song – epic beats, a melody you can’t shake and a totally entrancing groove. Five genius remixes of the song from Sander Kleinenberg, Sidney Samson, Dave Audé, Treasure Fingers and Designer Drugs will be available as B-sides to the original track. The video for ‘Not Getting Any Better,’ directed by Christopher Mills (Interpol, Metric), will debut at the end of May. The ambitious, 8.5 minute animated short film follows the trippy adventures of a trolley car driver in his attempt to escape the mundane life he leads.
Innerpartysystem – Patrick Nissley (vocals), Jared Piccone (drums), and Kris Barman (synth, guitar) – has been moving full throttle ahead this year, inciting a dance frenzy at SXSW, touring the US with acclaimed Australian band Pendulum and selling out shows at the landmark club Madame JoJo’s UK and Corsica Studios in the London.
