Following the launch of Audio, Video, Disco, their epic follow up to 2007′s Grammy nominated †, and of the back of their World Tour, Justice get ready for the UK festival season by announcing their new single ‘Newlands’, released today on Ed Banger Records / Because Music.
‘Newlands’ is one of the many highlights from AVD, and one of the most nakedly rocking moments from the band yet - sure to set the festival stages ablaze this summer! The opening pinwheeling riffs, and pistoning drums are paired with the yearning vocals of Morgan Phalen of NYC’s Diamond Nights to unforgettable effect. The EP will be accompanied by a stunningly cinematic video directed by Canada that will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
Having defined an era with their Dantean live show for † which saw the duo creating an electronic storm from behind a wall of Marshall amps and their iconic glowing crucifix, these 2012 festival shows see Xavier and Gaspard once more return to the UK shores following their megalithic sold out Brixton Academy show.
Xavier explains: “The live show makes the two albums coexist as one big piece, AVD takes † into another dimension and vice versa – twice more songs, thrice more fun”.
