65daysofstatic Escape From New York

    Last year, Sheffield, England instrumental math rockers 65daysofstatic played a pair of shows at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall to conclude a tour opening for The Cure. There’s something about playing back-to-back sold out shows at those venues that tends to bring out the best in performers. Luckily for us, 65dos documented the shows.

    The final result is a CD/DVD combo aptly titled Escape From New York. The CD comes in at 10 tracks and 45 minutes and is a great representation of their unique blend of electronic and live drumming. The DVD shot by Casper Newbolt is an entertaining look at the seven week long North American tour that consisted of 50+ shows.

    Although the combo has been available in the UK since earlier this year, it’s just now getting a stateside release via Monotreme Records. The quartet is currently in the studio writing their 4th album which is the follow up to The Destruction of Small Ideas which was released in 2007.


    Be sure to take a listen to “Retreat! Retreat!” before you run out to pick up the release which is available now.
