Failure Announce ‘In The Future’ EP
Failure has announced the March 30 release of a new four song EP titled In The Future. The EP is one of four planned releases the band will unveil this year, including two more extended play efforts and a full-length album arriving in the fall.
Guitarist and bassist Greg Edwards explains the concept of the group's forthcoming efforts dissect how society is on a downward spiral due to technological advances. “Living inside a screen seems like absolute freedom sometimes, but it’s more like a kind of psychic decapitation,” says Edwards. “We have made aliens of our bodies. We exist in an era where the most primitive structures in our brains are being rewarded and controlled, almost constantly, by extremely sophisticated, interconnected, and self-perpetuating technologies. There seems to be no imaginable way, or real desire, to moderate this.”
Edwards continues, “Artificial Intelligence may be creating itself right beneath our noses and using our bodies as unaware hosts. Everything is talking to everything else but there’s no communication anymore. Only divisions and their promotion. The surrogate reality of the internet sucks us out of our own bodies and puts us in a space where we can imagine we have less and less resemblance to the creatures we actually are. The forthcoming three EPs and full-length album, explore the ambivalence inspired by this dislocation.”
In The Future was produced by the band and mixed by Ken Andrews. It marks the Los Angeles rockers' first new music since their 2015 album The Heart Is A Monster. Fans can pre-order the effort in various bundles here.
