Remember drum & bass legends Pendulum? Well, they're back!
After six years of silence, Pendulum's new album is not only confirmed, but it's also been given a name, reports Billboard. News is scant for now, and the band aren’t giving away much on their social media channels, but the official announcement states that the upcoming LP, Reworks “is a project unlike any other released by the band before,” so don't just go by the name and expect just a regular work of remixes or a look-back compilation. There might be more to it.
But that doesn't mean Pendulum isn't in a nostalgic mood. The band has also announced it will release The Complete Works box set and has also announced forthcoming show dates. The first headline show of the tour kicks off on April 14th and marks the band's first headline show since 2011 at London’s unique new space, Printworks. Although this show sold out in less than half-an-hour, fans can still catch Pendulum on stage at the UK's Reading and Leeds Festival in late August.
Along with performances at Reading and Leeds Festival, Pendulum will also be headlining the BBC Radio 1 stage - the same slot they graced the last time they played in 2010 - and the shows mark a welcome return for the Australian drum and bass / heavy metal crossover act in the UK.
While the Reworks release date looms so near in the distance, it wouldn't be a surprise if a single from the album drops soon, so stay tuned for more. You could also follow the band on Twitter for the most up to date information. This could very well be the beginning of what could be a very exciting year for Pendulum fans.
