Plaid announce new album on Warp and UK tour
Ahead of their 30th anniversary with Warp Records, Plaid have announced a new album and share single, ‘Perspex’.
The legendary duo, who’ve been active since the late 80s, will release their 11th studio album Feorm Falorx on 11th November via their longtime label affiliate.
The album concept sees the pair recreate a recent performance they did at Feorm Festival: “an intergalactic shindig held on the planet Falorx”.
Expanding on the idea behind the record, a press release reads: “In order to survive the Falorxian atmosphere they were converted into light so the traditional recording devices they’d taken on their spacecraft ‘The Campbell’ were not functional. Fortunately, having consulted Earth’s Space Agency, it was deemed safe to recreate the performance back in their London studio.”
Feorm Falorx is much lighter in contrast to their last LP, but it’s still full of depth and characterised by their intricate melodies, which have become a plaid signature.
Both the album artwork and press shots were made using AI technology, Image Synthesis and OpenAI’s DALL·E, and a video and graphic novel will soon follow that expand on the theme of AI/AR mechanisms.
In celebration of the release, Plaid will tour the UK at venues including The White Hotel, for the album launch party, Printworks for the Erased Tapes night, Birmingham’s The Hare and Hounds and several other cities.
