Synth pop darlings Ladytron are back! Their fifth studio album, Gravity Seducer, will be released on September 13 through Nettwerk Records. You can check out three tracks off the forthcoming album on Sound Cloud. One of the stellar songs, “White Elephant,” is even available for a free download.
On October 7, Ladytron will be playing The Paradise Rock Club in Boston. Joining them will be with VHS or Beta, Sonoio, and Cambridge’s own DJ Chris Ewen. Doors are at 8 PM for this 18+ show. Tickets can be purchased online through Ticketmaster or in person at the Paradise box office, which is open Monday through Saturday, 12 PM – 6 PM.
Opening act Sonoio is a cool solo project from former Nine Inch Nails keyboardist Alessandro Cortini. Four tracks are available to download for free on the Sonoio website. Also heavy on the synths, Sonoio recalls early Depeche Mode with a dense, modern edge.
Whet your appetite on Saturday, September 10, when club night “Heroes” at TT the Bear’s will be doing a special Ladytron CD Release party. DJ Chris Ewen will be giving away copies of the album and tickets to the Paradise show. The night starts at 10 PM. Tickets are only $7.
