Icarus – Fake Fish Distribution release date in 2012

Our forthcoming album, ‘Fake Fish Distribution’, will be available on January 30th 6th February 2012 (N.B change of date!). It is our first full studio album since 2005’s ‘I Tweet the Birdy Electric‘ and was composed using parametric techniques, embedded into Ableton Live using the Max for Live add-on, allowing us to mutate the record so that each version that you download will be different from everyone else’s. More on this can be found via the dedicated FFD page and on the STEIM project blog.

We’re putting the final touches to the record now and are getting ready for the release. It has taken quite a long time to get this far, with a lot of help from some very helpful people, but it will be something a bit special. A short tour in Europe in January and February is being put together to promote the record. Dates coming shortly … for news on pre-orders, gigs and more, follow us on Twitter @birdy_electric or sign up to the Not-Applicable mailing list here (we promise this is ultra-low traffic). In the mean time, here’s a sample of FFD version 500:
