Get your healthy breakfast of German electro related news right here. Moderat, the collaborative project of Modeselektor and Apparat respectively, have teamed up and hit the studio again to record the follow up to 2010’s much lauded self titled debut. A statement has been released on their official website today:
After spending 6 quite intense months in the studio we just finished our 2nd album.
It‘s simply called „Moderat II“ and we aged about 10 years while making it. We still think it was worth the trouble.
Not seeing any sunshine or daylight for a long time, we can‘t wait to go on tour in August and play the new stuff live.
Once more, we cooperated with our friends from Pfadfinderei to create the new live show and the artwork.
To follow the cover design of the debut album and create a design series, we asked Siriusmo, who had already been drawing the punching woman of the first Moderat album.
„II“ will be released worldwide on Monkeytown Records. For the US & Canada we are proudly partnering with the legendary independent label Mute Records: “Mute is thrilled to be working with Moderat. Having released Apparat‘s latest album we’re already huge fans. II is a strong step forward for these collaborators!”
The record is released on August 2nd, you can pre-order via the official website here. 20 euros for a coloured 2xLP isn’t too shabby right?
