S.C.U.M is set to release a new single, “Whitechapel” on September 27th, 2011 on Mute.
The new single “Whitechapel”, available digitally, is the second single from S.C.U.M’s eagerly awaited debut album Again Into Eyes, which will be released on October 4th.
The release comes backed with exclusive track “Blindness” and also features remixes by Light Asylum and Carter Tutti (Throbbing Gristle / Chris and Cosey).
The single is accompanied by a new video directed by acclaimed artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster. Gripping, darkly atmospheric and truly striking, the video features the gothic euphoria and shadow play that the band is known for.
Again Into Eyes is a genuinely triumphant arrival,featuringten stunning tracks that reel from glorious carnival-esque euphoria to a sound that occasionally flirts at melancholy and utter despair. Recorded in London with producers Ken and Jolyon Thomas the album sees the bands individual listening habits in psychedelia, space-rock, avant-garde, and ambient soundtracks collide to form a pop trip that neatly balances the innovative with the rapturously danceable to great effect.
The S.C.U.M. line up of Thomas Cohen (vocal), Bradley Baker (machines), Samuel Kilcoyne (moog), Melissa Rigby (drums) and Huw Webb (Bass), kick off the fourteen date NME tour with Wolf Gang in October, which also features Niki and the Dove and DZ Deathrays.
