Fuck Buttons have announced that they will release a new album titled 'Slow Focus' this July.

The electronic duo of Andrew Hung and Ben Power have confirmed that they will release the follow-up to their last studio album, 2009's 'Tarot Sport', on July 22.

Speaking about the record, which is their first self-produced effort, Power said: "'Slow Focus' seemed like a very apt title when considering the sentiments of the music. It almost feels like the moment your eyes take to readjust when waking, and realising you in a very unusual and not a particularly welcoming place. We like to think that we create our own new landscapes, and with this it's a very alien one."

Hung added: "We've used producers as safety nets in the past, but we've always had a very specific idea of what our music should sound like and so it became about following the logical path."

The tracklisting for 'Slow Focus' is as follows:

'Brainfreeze'
'Year Of The Dog'
'The Red Wing'
'Sentients'
'Prince's Price'
'Stalker'
'Hidden XS'


Fuck Buttons are also set to play a series of festival dates throughout Europe this summer, including slots at Glastonbury and Green Man in the UK and both the Barcelona and Porto line-ups of this year's Primavera. The duo received mainstream exposure last year when they were featured as part of Danny Boyle's four-hour Olympic Opening Ceremony extravaganza, with the track 'Surf Solar' played at the start of the event and a remix of 'Olympians' used during the athlete's parade.
