808 State are an English electronic music outfit hailing from Manchester. Formed in 1987, the group currently consists of Graham Massey and Andrew Barker, though Martin Price, Gerald Simpson, and Darren Partington are all former members.
Pioneers of the acid house genre, and mainstays in all things electronic, 808 State would release six studio albums in their time, most famously with 1991's Top 5 hit 'ex:el'. Their debut, 'Newbuild', is also considered one of the most influential LPs in electronica, with Aphex Twin and Autechre amongst those inspired by it.
808 State have announced a 30th anniversary tour for autumn 2018. The set will also feature new material from the band's upcoming sixth album, 'Transmission Suite' - their latest since 2016's 'Outpost Transmission'.
