The Computers are returning to London on 5 October, playing a headline show at The Borderline a week after releasing their third album, ‘Birth/Death’.
Tickets are available now.
The band recorded the new album earlier this year in a Devon studio on the edge of a cliff. Produced by Plan B collaborator David McEwan, the 12-track collection of “garage-soul” and “punk ‘n’ roll” anthems includes the single ‘This Ain’t Right’.
“The crippling gruel of discontent. The unnerving feeling of injustice. Just when you think things can’t get much worse…they do. This is our sentiment with this song,” drummer Aidan Sinclair says of the track.
“When we originally started jamming the song it sounded like it could have been on a northern soul compilation. But due to our constant thirst for re-invention we decided to expand the tune sonically,” he explains. “We wanted to recreate the infectious feel of the soul breakbeat with the intense heaviness and weight of real life.
“The clouds are forming, the birds are silent, and no cars are passing by… this ain’t right.”
Formed in Exeter, Devon, the band recorded their debut album ‘This Is The Computers’, live to tape over four days at the home of former Rocket From The Crypt front man John “Speedo” Reis. Following the success of the song ‘Music Is Dead’, the band returned in 2013 with the 11-track ‘Love Triangles Hate Squares’ and its single ‘Disco Sucks’, recorded with producer Mark Neill.
‘Birth/Death’ is released on 30 September 2016.
