Squarepusher Announces New Album <i>Damogen Furies</i>, Shares New Track

Since 2012’s Ufabulum, prolific English producer Squarepusher (Tom Jenkinson) has been relatively quiet. He released the Music for Robots EP last year, a composition written by Jenkinson and performed by three Z-Machine robots, but that didn’t quite sate the die-hard fans in the interim. Squarepusher has announced that he will be returning with a proper LP, titled Damogen Furies, on April 20 via Warp Records.

In addition to the exciting album announcement, Squarepusher has made the lead single “Rayc Fire 2” available as a free download on his website. The song continues in the direction of the Ufabulum material, with utterly mind-bending future sounds moving along at a frenetic and glitchy pace. It’s a jarring trip through technology, and hints that Damogen Furies will be an intense listening experience, to say the least.

You can pre-order Damogen Furies here, and download “Rayc Fire 2” here.
