MACHINES’ EP AVAILABLE NOW EXCLUSIVELY

ON BEATPORT HERE

With just three weeks until the release of their second album LONDON ROAD (Max Records/INgrooves), MODESTEP have just released their brand new video for the album’s first single “Machines.” Watch here.

 

Perforated with mechanised samples, warped synths and the heavy bass that electronic fusion act MODESTEP have made their own, “Machines” proves that the U.K. band — brothers Josh (vocals, keyboards) and Tony Friend (DJ, guitar), Pat Lundy (drums) and Kyle Deek (lead guitar) — is not content to stay within the fold.

 

The video for “Machines,” co-produced and co-directed by MODESTEP, sees the guys in a traditional rock band set-up with white zombie-eyes in front of an enormous TV screen–echoing the single’s man vs tech themes with frontman Josh Friend plugged into an IV drip. Masterfully shot by Tony and Josh’s brother Sam Friend, the video is everything you’d expect from the group.

 

By seamlessly melding rock with electro influences MODESTEP have crafted their own sound that defies definition by genre and “Machines” is just a taste of what’s to come from the album due for release on May 26.

About Modestep:

‘London Road,’ the new album from Modestep due out May 26, say brothers Josh and Tony Friend, is the real deal, an accurate representation of the four-piece they’ve become, and a passionate tribute to their home city.  The success of Modstep’s debut album ‘Evolution Theory’ launched them into the A League after dabbling in music their whole lives. Tony came more from the DJ side of things, getting his first decks aged 13, while Josh was into practicing the musical aspect, learning piano from age ten and in bands forever. Just before things kicked off Josh worked in the Apple Store and Tony was at university.  Indeed their debut show was at the Download Festival. They’ve developed a fierce live reputation since evolving into an four –piece outfit who punch hard but also have versatility. They can fit on a bill at Reading, Ultra, Download or Coachella but are equally at home beside electronic names they were listening to in the run-up to the album  – Noisia, Squarepusher, Black Sun Empire, Neosignal, Nero, Justice, Amon Tobin and the like. And they can’t wait to take it back onto the stage, to globally show off an album they’re immensely proud of.  Modestep are back, they’re loud and they’re filled with fire. Watch out, world.
