Failure have announced that they will release a new EP titled “In The Future” on March 30. That effort will be the first in a series of three new EPs. A new full-length album will follow the series in the fall.
“Living inside a screen seems like absolute freedom sometimes, but It’s more like a kind of psychic decapitation. We have made aliens of our bodies. We exist in an era where the most primitive structures in our brains are being rewarded and controlled, almost constantly, by extremely sophisticated, interconnected, and self-perpetuating technologies.
There seems to be no imaginable way, or real desire, to moderate this. Artificial Intelligence may be creating itself right beneath our noses and using our bodies as unaware hosts. Everything is talking to everything else but there’s no communication anymore. Only divisions and their promotion.
The surrogate reality of the internet sucks us out of our own bodies and puts us in a space where we can imagine we have less and less resemblance to the creatures we actually are. The forthcoming three eps and full-length album, explore the ambivalence inspired by this dislocation.”
Failure have revealed that they recorded their “Fantastic Planet” 20th anniversary shows for a new live release, which is simply called “Fantastic Planet Live.” It will feature select songs from each show, and it can be preordered via PledgeMusic.
Failure will be performing their 1996 album “Fantastic Planet“ in its entirety on their upcoming tour to commemorate its 20th anniversary. Check out the dates for that trek below.
