Today, The Presets announced their new album, ‘Pacifica,’ will be released in September via Casablanca. Featuring 10 tracks, ‘Pacifica’ was produced by the band – Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes – and mixed in LA with Tony Hoffer.
It has been more than 4 years since The Presets released their sophomore album, ‘Apocalypso,’ which spawned 5 hit singles and exceeded Triple Platinum sales in their native Australia. The Presets received out 6 ARIA and ARIA artisan awards (including Album of The Year, Best Group, and Best Dance Release) at the 2008 ARIA Awards, and ‘Apocalypso’ also received Triple J’s ‘J Award’ for Album of The Year.
A mysterious video and webpage (youthintrouble.com) have recently surfaced which has been retweeted by label Modular People so it is rumoured that it may be a teaser for the band’s new single. There have also been rumours online relating to the posted video that the Presets have gone dubstep but Modular has firmly denied this is the case (luckily). There is also a code 0900290612 on the website that may represent the full video release details of 9 am on 29th June 2012.
You can now order a limited-edition version of the album featuring CD / Vinyl / digital download code coupled with a hardcover book filled with expanded artwork plus a limited edition lithograph that is numbered and signed by the band. All this is housed in a 12″ case with a lenticular cover. Pre-order it here.
In support of the album, The Presets will be playing some dates later this year.
