Crude Futures is released digitally on March 1st on Transgressive Records across Europe and available to Pre-Order on CD and strictly limited edition (300) 12" here, also as a bundle with their previous compilation album for only £15 (inc p+p).
Crude Futures' was recorded in New Zealand when the band took an eight month break from their relentless touring schedule. It coincides with a major exhibition (also titled ‘Crude Futures') by New Zealand documentary photographer John Lake which explores the burden of optimism in a constantly ‘apocalyptic' reality. The album also marks So So Modern's most complete body of work and represents a new era for the four-piece.
Formed in 2004, they have thoroughly acquainted themselves with the basement venues and clubs of the world. They have tirelessly toured throughout the USA, Europe and Australasia, leaving their audiences with lasting memories of their explosive and noisy live show.
With a maniacal sense of spontaneity, live is where the band really shine. So So Modern will return to the UK for an unrelenting assault on the live scene in January.
