Boards Of Canada's 'Live Album Transmission' crashes official website
Fans could only listen to 'Tomorrow's Harvest' via the live YouTube feed posted on Facebook.
The live album transmission of 'Tomorrow's Harvest', their first full-length record in eight years, was greeted with phenomenal demand, causing an error message to appear on boardsofcanada.com. However, fans could still hear the album via the live YouTube feed, which was posted on their official Facebook.
Twitter also unusually went down minutes into the transmission, which began at 9pm (BST), prompting the duo's label, Warp Records, to ask: "Did @boctransmission break twitter? #tomorrowsharvest."
The duo, who recently hosted an unusual album playback for the album involving two speakers in the middle of the desert, previously debuted new track 'Cold Earth' at Detroit's Movement Festival last Monday (May 26) and also played a brand new song titled 'Reach For The Dead' on a wall projection in Japan. The Neil Krug-directed film that accompanies the music was first broadcast in Shibuya, Tokyo, projected against the side of a building to a large crowd.
'Tomorrow's Harvest' will be officially released on June 10 via Warp Records. The album will consist of 17 tracks. The full tracklisting is:
'Reach For The Dead'
'Split Your Infinities'
'Nothing Is Real'
'Come To Dust'
