Orbital – The regeneration continues…
The regeneration continues…..
2017 saw a welcome return for the groundbreaking British dance music duo Orbital – creators of classic electronic symphonies and timeless dancefloor bangers, originators of live dance music as a must-see ecstatic live experience.
After a five-year hiatus, brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll reunited in 2017 to bring the acclaimed Orbital live show, which has been described by both The Guardian and Q Magazine as among the greatest gigs of all time, to a new generation. Having headlined a busy summer of major festivals across continents including, Bluedot , Standon Calling and Beyond the Tracks in the UK, WAM Festival in Spain, Forbidden Fruit in Eire, Sonicmania in Japan and Brussels Summer Festival and more, Orbital are looking forward to their very own two indoor UK shows to end the year.
They play the Manchester O2 Apollo on Friday 1st December and Hammersmith Evenim Apollo, London on Sat 2nd December.
Recording for their new album is currently underway at their own studio in Brighton. It will be the duo’s first new album since the much-acclaimed ‘Wonky,’ which came out way back in 2012. As quoted from The Skinny then, “Their ability to absorb new influences within their own distinct universe is peerless.” Thisneatly sums up the uncanny knack Orbital have for staying close to their fans and connecting with a new listening audience. The album is expected to land in 2018.
Orbital found time in between shows to record new track ‘Copenhagen,’ which they have been showcasing live this year. It is currently available to stream.
A few tickets are still available from the following outlets:
FRIDAY 1ST DECEMBER – MANCHESTER O2 APOLLO
SATURDAY 2ND DECEMBER – HAMMERSMITH EVENTIM APOLLO
