F*** Buttons Announce 2nd Single 'Brainfreeze' Due Out 7th October 2013

F*** Buttons Announce 2nd Single 'Brainfreeze' Due Out 7th October 2013

Following on from the brilliantly dystopian meanderings of their third album 'Slow Focus' (ATP Recordings) receiving widespread critical acclaim and justifiably beating out bigger names and bigger budgets to debut at No.36 in the Official UK Album Charts and No.1 in the Official Record Store Charts upon its release in July, F*** Buttons - the London-based mercurial electronic duo - release their latest single and live favourite, 'Brainfreeze', on Monday 7th October 2013.

As the opening track on the album, 'Brainfreeze'acts perfectly as a portal for the headlong rush into F*** Buttons' viciously seething mix of industrial beats and spitting electronics. It holds together on its own merits too, though; a rumbling, viscous brew that swarms over every space within its recording. 'Brainfreeze' hooks the listener in with its rolling groove and then buries them under a mass of sound akin to layers of 80's sci-fi music, piled on top of each other and then pulled apart in order to make a coherent pattern. 

'Brainfreeze' will be released on a limited edition clear-vinyl 12" single (2,000 copies worldwide, each including a download code) and as a 2-track Digital Download single, both of which will include the full 8-minute version of 'Brainfreeze' as well as a brand new additional track called 'Royal Flush'.

After a busy summer of UK and European festival shows, including rapturously-received headline slots on the Park Stage at Glastonbury, The Other Stage at Green Man, the ATP Stage at Primavera Sound (Spain) and at Route du Rock (France), F*** Buttons now set out to promote Slow Focus in full. They start their UK & Ireland tour in Birmingham on Sunday 8th September and finish with a sold-out show at London's Electric Ballroom on Tuesday 17th September before heading straight to Paris on Thursday 19th to commence further tours of continental Europe, North and South America, Australia and Scandinavia that will see them on the road until late November 2013. Support on the UK & Dublin dates will be The Haxan Cloak with additional support from Forrests in Dublin and London; in continental Europe, support comes from Eaux in Paris, with Zan Lyons supporting at several non-festival shows on the rest of the tour.

'Brainfreeze' is available on 7th October 2013 via ATP Recordings and will be available digitally and clear 12" vinyl.
