Boundaries-barging Sheffield crew 65daysofstatic are putting the final touches on a new, sixth studio album – and the four-piece has shared a special first trailer for the LP, exclusively with Clash.
Speaking about a new deal with Superball Music, the label behind the latest LP (excluding Australia and Japan), the band has stated:
“As the music industry slowly crumbles around our very ears, it’s comforting to have found a new home with Superball Music, who we intend to use as a solid base from which to launch our surprise attack on the entrenched mainstream that is modern-day alternative music. There is a lot of danger out there, ok?”

What does it tell us? September 2013, for one thing. Stay tuned, as we’ve more of these trailers to come.
The group, whose material has long pushed through the extremities of rock into glitches-rich electro territories, and took a distinct turn for more clubland designs with fourth album ‘We Were Exploding Anyway’, is also touring extensively this autumn, across the UK and Europe.
Ahead of the band’s September and October dates, 65dos call at Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival for a truly special show. They are presenting Sleepwalk City, a cutting-edge audio-visual installation/performance in the city’s Millennium Gallery, featuring new music as well as experimental live performances and video.
