Groove Armada launch their eagerly awaited return with the release of their explosive new track “Warsaw” – a sneak preview from their hotly anticipated new album ‘Black Light’ (Due Feb 2010) and illuminate the live scene with 6 UK ‘Black Light’ shows and parties in October.
“Warsaw” is available immediately after Pete Tong pushes the button for its worldwide premiere on Radio One, from 7pm, Friday, September 4, 2009 as a free download for TWO WEEKS ONLY from www.groovearmada.com. The following day Groove Armada play one of their legendary live sets at Warsaw Peace Festival to a 70,000 strong crowd.
Produced by Groove Armada (Andy Cato and Tom Findlay) and co-written by Groove Armada and Nick Littlemore from PNAU & Empire Of The Sun, the free download is a breathtaking taster from their new record set for release in February 2010, their first on GA Recordings in a worldwide partnership with Cooking Vinyl.
“Free of all major label agendas, we have made the record we wanted to make, says Andy. “We got that same combination of live band and electronics going in the studio that have made GA live special. We found vocalists that would keep working with us until it was right. There have been some difficult months, but maybe that’s why they are the best songs we have written. If we had to choose one record for the time capsule, this is it.”
Next month, Groove Armada return to the UK to unveil their all-new 6-date ‘Black Light’ tour with a series of exclusive shows and parties in the UK’s most captivating and arresting venues. It will be the first chance to hear tracks off the new album in the live arena and a special opportunity to see Groove Armada in such a unique environment. It’s their first UK shows since the band’s highly energised headline performance at their very own creation, Lovebox Festival, in July.
