On Friday 6th November rave-royalty Altern 8 will release a 4-track mix EP 'Hard Crew' - their first new music in 27 years!
Arriving nearly 3 decades after 1993's beautifully melancholic 'Everybody', the 4-track mix EP will be released on Bandcamp alongside remixes by Samurai Breaks, Denham Audio and Mechanizm & Kin You can preview all 4 mixes as a mash-up on the band's Soundcloud.
'Hard Crew' is a blistering amen-infused breakbeat track in true Altern 8 style, bringing the infectious stabs and earth-shaking bass you'd expect from the band that produced Frequency and Armageddon.
The news has been rapturously received on social media with many requesting a vinyl release in addition to digital. The band have been pretty clear that any future vinyl pressing hinges entirely on the success of the digital release.
[UPDATE: 'Hard Crew' is now available on vinyl and can be ordered here.]
Fans of the band are well-positioned to send a loud and clear message that there is an appetite for new Altern 8 material - something the band haven't ruled out if 'Hard Crew' is a success.
A portion of the proceeds from the release of 'Hard Crew' will go towards supporting #WeAreViable - a movement that aims to unite all corners of the entertainment industry to help safeguard its future and deliver a safe return to normal.
To get your (virtual) hands on a copy of 'Hard Crew' while simultaneously making a vinyl release more likely and supporting the entertainment industry get back on its feet, head to Bandcamp on the 6th November!
