Always pushing the imagery envelope and driving musical innovation, leave it to Ladytron to release a ‘trailer’ for their upcoming new record, Gravity The Seducer. This one is the band’s fifth LP release. The trailer is a sneak peak, including snippets of all 12 tracks. For me, one listen reveals two things. (1) This is totally Ladytron; yes! (2) This is completely different from everything previously Ladytron, yes!
“People will always either want you to change completely or repeat over and over,” says Ladytron’s Daniel Hunt. “But, we are at the point where we don’t really have to make any concessions to what people think we should be.”
The band retreated to the Kent countryside in the summer of last year to record the album with co-producer Barny Barnicott, who also worked with them on Witching Hour in 2004. Gravity The Seducer is set for release in the U.S. on September 13. The band is currently prepping for their North American Tour, with Sonoio, VHS or Beta and Geographer.
