The Presets have announced their first album in four years – and we now have another contender for worst cover of the year.
Following the wildly successful Apocalypso, which appeared on the worst covers list of 2008, third album Pacifica will be out September 14 through Modular Recordings. The album was produced by the duo of Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes, and mixed in Los Angeles by Tony Hoffer (The Thrills, M83, The Temper Trap). It’s been described as featuring “10 prismatic, synth-laced songs … [that] sees The Presets boldly venture into new, uncharted musical territories”.
Pacifica will be available as a deluxe version, which is limited to 1500 copies worldwide. It includes the album in three formats – CD, vinyl and download – as well as a hard cover book and a lithograph signed by the band. Pre-orders here.
Along with labelmates Tame Impala, The Presets have just been confirmed for this year’s Parklife, which will take place in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide in September.
