The Presets announce their long-awaited return with their new album, Pacifica, to be released this September 14 on Modular Recordings.
Featuring ten prismatic, synth-laced songs, Pacifica sees The Presets boldly venture into new, uncharted musical territories. Traversing both light and shade in energy and emotion, the album was produced by the band – Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyes – and mixed in Los Angeles with Tony Hoffer.
It’s been over four years since The Presets captured the nation’s imagination with their blitzkrieg of an album, the sophomore Apocalypso. Spawning five hit singles and exceeding Triple Platinum sales, Apocalypso set dizzying new heights for dance music in Australia. The single My People stayed in the ARIA charts for over 75 weeks, making it the longest charting Australian single in ARIA chart history.
The Presets took out six ARIA and ARIA artisan awards (including Album of The Year – the first electronic band to do so, Best Group, and Best Dance Release) at the 2008 ARIA Awards, and Apocalypso also received Triple J’s ‘J Award’ for Album of The Year.
The following year The Presets were awarded Songwriters of The Year at the APRA Awards and again Best Dance release at the ARIAs that year for Talk Like That. Their last national tour saw them play to over 70,000 people, including three consecutive Hordern Pavilions in Sydney and three Festival Halls in Melbourne.
The Presets have also announced a Limited Edition Deluxe version of the new album Pacifica. Limited to only 1,500 copies worldwide, the Limited Edition Deluxe version comes housed in a 12″ case with a lenticular cover.
The album is included in three formats, CD, vinyl and MP3 Download. Inside you’ll find a hard cover book, which features expanded artwork and a limited edition lithograph, which is numbered and signed by the band.
