Orbital Split Once More, Paul Hartnoll Debuts New Music


After a successful reunion in 2008, the brothers Hartnoll have once more decided to call time on Orbital. Paul Hartnoll has followed up by immediately announcing his new 8:58 project. "Orbital had stopped working properly." he writes "We had a great four years since getting back together in 2008, but it was time to move on."

Today the first 8:58 track became available – and whilst it has retained the skittering percussion Orbital have utilised so effectivly, it also nods to the sentimental soundtrack classics of Ryuichi Sakamoto. The forthcoming 8:58 album is available for pre-sale, and a tour has been planned, running over the following dates:
