Klaxons have said that their upcoming third album is “classy and euphoric”.
Speaking inside this week’s NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now, Jamie Reynolds of the band said the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Surfing The Void’ features production from James Ford, The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands and James Murphy. The band features as part of a rundown of 100 albums to look forward to in 2014 containing exclusive studio reports and photos.
“It covers leftfield electronica and pop. It’s where we always said we were gonna place ourselves – it just took us a while to learn how to get there,” continued Reynolds. The album is set for release this spring.
Klaxons made their UK festival comeback at last May’s The Great Escape. The band had performed at Newquay’s Relentless Boardmasters festival in 2011 but since then only played a handful of shows in Europe and the US. Opening with ‘Atlantis To Interzone’, the new rave veterans tore through an 11-song set that included five new songs, plus fan favourites ‘Golden Skans’ and ‘Gravity’s Rainbow’. Actress Keira Knightley, who married keyboard player James Righton in a ceremony in France, was reportedly supporting her new husband from the crowd.
