New material, new performance production, new album…
Monday March 18: a whole tonne of Pendulum news dropped via London’s South West Four festival as Pendulum were confirmed as new headliners in light of The Prodigy cancelling all live shows following Keith Flint’s tragic passing earlier this month.
Perhaps the only band big and influential enough to fill such big shoes, the Australian trio will mark the occasion with the official debut of their Trinity concept. Bringing the band’s original trio Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and El Hornet together on stage for the first time years, Trinity promises new material and will be toured worldwide. Here’s what it says on the SW4 site…
The original Pendulum TRINITY of Rob Swire (Anscenic), Gareth McGrillen (Speed) and Paul Harding (El Hornet) will perform together outside of Australia FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TEN YEARS at SW4! You will get to hear them play brand new Pendulum music from their forthcoming EP series and album, which fans have been waiting for with baited breath, with the trio surrounded by the kind of breath-taking production you have come to expect from these pioneers of electronic music. Plus some live vocals from Rob Swire and special guests!
Pendulum’s Trinity World Tour will be taking in performances across the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia in 2019 & 2020 with SW4 this Summer being the OFFICIAL DEBUT of this exciting new chapter in the Pendulum history books.
Pendulum will play at South West Four on Sunday August 25 alongside the likes of Andy C, Noisia, SaSaSaS, Kings Of The Rollers, Friction, My Nu Leng and many more. This follows a prominent 2018 for the band as they toured their live show and released their Reworks album with remixes from some of the biggest names in electronic music (and beyond) Besides sharing the festival’s announcement, the band have yet to comment. We’ll keep you posted on any developments.
