65daysofstatic release ‘The Destruction Of Small Ideas’ deluxe edition and Australian tour tickets on sale

UK electro-post-rock legends 65daysofstatic have followed the recent announcement of their first ever Australian tour with the news that their 2007 album The Destruction of Small Ideas will be released as a deluxe package, featuring a second disc of rarities and B-sides.

The album follows the recent release of the band’s latest record We Were Exploding Anyway/Heavy Sky and will be followed by deluxe releases of their earlier albums One Time For All Time and The Fall of Math in celebration of their first Australian tour.

65daysofstatic formed in 2001 and soon became known for their fearsome sound – a blend of live electronics, drum and bass beats and the pummelling build and dynamics of post-rock. They have shared stages with the likes of The Cure, Battles, and Metallica, and featured at the world’s biggest festivals such as Summersonic and Sonisphere.

While their records showcase their genre-bending experimental rock, their live show is a dynamic force that has made them one of the most popular instrumental touring acts in the world.

The Destruction of Small Ideas features the band’s hybrid sound, crossing indie, post rock, metal, hardcore and electronica, including a guest appearance from Circle Takes the Square.

65daysofstatic announce first ever Australian tour

One of the world’s most popular instrumental groups 65DAYSOFSTATIC have announced their first ever visit to Australia, performing headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth as well as this year’s Peat’s Ridge Festival.  

 The tour follows the recent announcement of the release of their back catalogue in Australia, beginning with their latest ‘We Were Exploding Anyway / Heavy Sky’ featuring Robert Smith (The Cure), followed by deluxe editions of their first 3 albums.  

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 The Destruction of Small Ideas and We Were Exploding Anyway have seen the band shift into an electronic-based sound that has seen them compared to peers such as Battles and Aphex Twin. Straddling both rock and electronica, the band has created a hybrid sound that is truly unique.  

It’s the band’s live show however, that has made them one of the most popular instrumental touring acts in the world. Where their records show their ornate instrumentation and experimental sound manipulations, their live show is a rock and roll rave that has seen them share stages with the likes of Metallica and play huge festivals such as Sonisphere and Summersonic, as well as massive European dance parties.

The tour and releases will be followed by the band’s newest studio album, due in mid-2013. 

“Catch 65DOS live and you will see that every member puts as much perspiration into his playing as a road-worker into his shovel on a hot day.” – Rogue Mag

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.
