After 28 years and 13 albums Eat Static are back with a new album – ‘Last Ship To Paradise‘, which sees founder member Merv joins forces with original Eat Static member Steve Everitt. This is the first Eat Static release that’s been done entirely with modular synthesizers. Merv and Steve embrace the burgeoning underground modular movement and combined their studios with a view to pushing boundaries and exploring total creativity and control over their own sounds. They wanted to go past the normal limitations of regular analogue hardware, let alone presets and widely available plug-ins. As Merv says, “there’s no sound until you patch it up…”
Two bonus tracks are being released for free in the run up to the album release. On the pre-order the tracks you can download are 45 second previews – Merv wants to save the whole album experience for the release date.
