“...they have done what they've always done -- thrown the rulebook out the window and grown organically. With such clinical conviction 65DOS are utterly peerless...” -- Razio Rauf, Kerrang Magazine.
“65daysofstatic have made their masterpiece... The Destruction of Small Ideas is a weight, a tower of babel, a journey, learnings, understandings, communication, evolution.” -- Stylus Magazine.
In the first week of its release, 65daysofstatic's new album The Destruction of Small Ideas sold out the entire 10,000 discs of the first pressing, forcing its label Monotreme Records to scramble to meet the overwhelming demand. The British post-rock quartet's exponentially growing popularity in the UK, Europe and Japan is poised to spread across the U.S. with its upcoming summer 2007 tour with Fear Before the March of Flames.
This is the first stateside jaunt for the group, which normally plays for crowds of thousands overseas. 65daysofstatic made its American live debut to an enthusiastic audience at the SXSW festival this past March. The summer tour supporting its third album The Destruction of Small Ideas begins July 18th, running throughout the U.S. until August 10th. See complete dates below.
The Destruction of Small Ideas is the highly-anticipated follow-up to 65daysofstatic’s massively popular sophomore album One Time For All Time which was released in the US for the first time last fall. The three-song single “Don't Go Down To Sorrow” (MP3 | VIDEO) preceded the album on April 9th, building upon the critical and commercial success of One Time For All Time in the UK, Europe and Japan, which catapulted the band to festival stages and the pages of the NME, The Wire, Rock Sound and others since its release there in 2005.
The futuristic tone of The Destruction of Small Ideas is a refreshing gene-splice of electronic glitch and guitar girth, making for what amounts to a seductive score for an unwritten sci-fi epic, melding cutting guitars with sampled beats, live drums and glitch. Where IDM culture cuts out in the low end however, 65daysofstatic delivers a thunderous wall of guitars that's reportedly still shaking UK festival grounds since last summer's performances. The American press has begun to pick up on the band too, with forthcoming coverage in Magnet, Paste and Harp magazines.
