!!! Line Up July Release For New EP 'Certified Heavy Kats'

Wednesday, 08 July 2020 Written by Huw Baines

!!! will return later this month with a new EP.

‘Certified Heavy Kats’ follows up last year’s ‘Wallop’ album and it’s out on July 31 through Warp. Its lead single is an acid house throwback called Do the Dial Tone—head below to check out an animated video courtesy of Cheng-Hsu Chung. In a statement, the band said:

Sometimes it takes awhile to notice something you took for granted your whole life has been made obsolete and is gone. Like a dial tone. You’ll probably never hear one again. That’s fine. Technology is there to be made obsolete. There’s nothing there to be nostalgic about but as you recognize it’s extinction you think about your own relationship to the present… what you take for granted… what may be gone soon…. 

This is a song about being overwhelmed with opinions and recommendations but at the same time being in love with and celebrating the access to information. After all, a !!! tour isn’t a !!! tour until we’re looking on some producer's wikipedia page… but people also bask in the power of publicly judging everything from restaurants to hospital waiting rooms. And these opinions and platforms will go the way of the dial tone soon enough.

Did we steal this beat from a KLF cover band that Nic was in? Absolutely, we did. Isn't that what KLF would do? Absofuckinglutely, they would.
