Drum & Bass supergroup Pendulum have been absent from the music scene for the past decade, but one of the few silver linings of 2020 has been their glorious return with new music and a forthcoming live show.
Over the past few weeks, Pendulum have teased new music including comeback single "Driver" and the follow-up "Nothing For Free". Fans have been praying that these singles are the vanguard of a new full-length album, and it seems that their prayers may well be answered.
Taking to Twitter this week, the band announced a unique new live show. Taking place this Friday, 2nd October, the band will perform live from Spitbank Fort, an ex-military base in the middle of the English Channel.
The performance is heavily rumoured to act as a preview for a new sonic direction from the band, bridging the gap between 2010s Immersion and the Pendulum of 2020. Speaking to The Metro, frontman Rob Swire said of the concert;
“We left to make house music for a long time. That was a very different experience—making that music there’s going to be no one in 10 years saying, ‘God, you remember that track they made?’ As a genre, it’s very of the moment. That was refreshing because you could just make something and if it didn’t work, no one cared. A year later, you make something else and it’s just there, whereas Pendulum has always been a bit more considered. Getting back into that flow is kind of a process.” - Rob Swire
The show will air on Pendulum's Official YouTube Channel.
