Autechre have announced details surrounding their tenth full-length album, Oversteps.
As was the case with their previous nine efforts, Rob Brown and Sean Booth will follow up 2008’s Quaristice by releasing through their long term label home Warp. Although we’re in the dark at this stage as to how the record is sounding, if its predecessor is anything to go by, expect it to surprise and frustrate in equal measures. What we are sure of, though, is that the lads from Rochdale will embark on an extensive tour of the UK and Europe in support of the LP. Starting out at Manchester’s Pure venue on March 11th, the party will swing by—among many others—Minehead (for Bloc), Glasgow, Paris, Ljubljana, Copenhagen and Amsterdam, before ending up at an as yet unannounced London venue on April 10th.
Those who still dabble in the black arts will be pleased to learn that the album will be made available as a deluxe vinyl edition, which means 180 gram discs, housed in a debossed rigid slipcase, with a 900mm x 600mm double-sided poster also thrown in for good measure.
Rochdale’s bleep and squeak merchants Autechre have announced details of their beautifully packaged 10th studio album. Released via Warp, their long term home, there is plenty to say about Oversteps as long as it involves the packaging and the pressing of super high quality 180gm vinyls.
Housed in a special slip case, and with each record having it’s own dedicated cardboard sleeve, Oversteps sounds like an IDM pervert’s wet dream. Also included is a poster of the album art printed on Offenbach paper, an mp3 version of the album and the choice of two WAV versions of the album – 24 or 48 bit resolution.
Absolutely no word on the music however, though I would hazard a guess that it will be challenging, electronic and please as many people as it alienates.
Autechre will be performing at various shows and festivals in support of Oversteps through in March and April, including the Bloc Weekend in Minehead, Copenhagen, Paris and Glasgow, before finishing up with a secret show somewhere in London.
