65daysofstatic announce ‘Heavy Sky’ and release of back catalogue in Australia

One of the world’s most popular instrumental groups, 65daysofstatic, have announced the release of We Were Exploding Anyway / Heavy Sky, a 2 disc deluxe edition of their last studio album, featuring a guest appearance by Robert Smith (The Cure) as well as several previously unreleased tracks. It will be followed by the release of the band’s entire back catalogue in Australia, including their albums The Fall of Math, One Time For All Time and The Destruction of Small Ideas.

Formed in 2001 in Sheffield, 65daysofstatic quickly established themselves as one of the most influential post-rock exponents in the UK. Whilst their early EPs showed a band dabbling in electronica and dance-rock, the band was equally at home playing epic instrumentals and math-rock. The success of their 2004 debut LP The Fall of Math and the follow-up One Time For All Time earned the band a personal invitation to support The Cure on their 2007/08 arena tour around the world. Flowing into 2009, the band played to hundreds of thousands of people across the US, UK, Europe and Asia.

Their most recent records have seen the band shift into an electronic-based sound that has been compared to peers such as Battles and Aphex Twin. Straddling both rock and electronica, 65dos have created a hybrid sound that is truly unique. While their records showcase their ornate instrumentation and experimental sound manipulations, their live show is a rock and roll rave that has made them one of the most popular instrumental touring acts in the world.

Their latest, Heavy Sky, is a collection of tracks culled from the WWEA sessions, featuring previously unreleased material that again showcases their undefinable brand of danceable electro-post-rock. The presence of a remix contributed by Australian instrumental group sleepmakeswaves and the announcement that their entire back catalogue will be released in Oz, hints that the band is planning a long overdue trip Down Under…

“We Were Exploding Anyway/Heavy Sky” is out August 12th on Bird’s Robe Records.
