MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS – THE CRYSTAL AXIS
The Crystal Axis – Track Listing:
This New Technology
Lara Versus The Savage Pack
The Great Beyond
Winds of Fortune
Fade to Red
Featuring 12 tracks sparkling with a new kind of kaleidoscopic warped pop, including the bands first single ’This New Technology,’ and now ‘Vital Signs,’ The Crystal Axis is a 50-minute symphony of synth-rock invention. Veering from percussive, hypnotic grooves to luxuriant jams, walls of sound, and 70s AM melodic forks, The Crystal Axis, the bands’ sophomore release will be available as a limited edition, seven track bonus disc from May 28th on Siberia Records via Inertia.
Never ones to curb their creative endeavors, the boys are offering fans for a limited time only, the chance to get their hands on a special edition Siberia/Acephale records 12” gatefold vinyl – only 1000 will be available worldwide this summer HERE from May 28th.
The band are also proud to announce a new deluxe ‘Crystal Axis’ package featuring the 2 CD (limited edition), an exclusive t-shirt designed by Jake Rolfe, and Midnight Juggernauts badge.
The band wanted the 5 and a half minute version of ‘Vital Signs’ to be the definitive version, not a radio edit – so they’ve decided to give it away, along with a B-Side called ‘Get Connected’ which was written and recorded while creating the album in a house in the middle of nowhere by the beach, before venturing to the studio.
The highly anticipated follow up to their worldwide, critically acclaimed debut album ‘Dystopia,’ was recorded between an isolated house in coastal Australia, and in their own studio this winter in Melbourne – and much like their first sonic offering to the universe ‘The Crystal Axis’ was produced by the band themselves and engineered by Chris Moore (TV on the Radio, Yeasayer, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars) after returning from their whirlwind worldwide tour in 2008.
