Former Factory records band and one of the best post punk bands of the period Section 25 have got a new album called ‘Dark Light’ at the end of February.
Factory Benelux presentsÂ Dark Light, the brand new album by post-punk trailblazersÂ Section 25, Factory workers since 1979.
Recorded in 2012,Â Dark LightÂ is their first collection of new material since the tragic loss of co founder Larry Cassidy in 2010, and marks a return to the smooth electro and synth-pop textures first explored on their seminal 1984 albumÂ From the Hip. These echoes are amplified by the presence of co-vocalists Beth and Jo Cassidy, and a sublime cover image by iconic and celebrated graphic designer Peter Saville.
Much ofÂ Dark LightÂ was produced in collaboration with remixer Derek Miller (aka Outernationale), and includes new versions of recent single tracksÂ Colour MovementÂ Sex & ViolenceÂ andÂ Inner Drive. Other stand-out cuts include future pop classicÂ MyÂ Outrage, which will also be made available as a limited edition 7â single (7 FBN 62) to mark World Record Store Day in April 2013.
Section 25 in 2013 are: Vin Cassidy, Bethany Cassidy, Steve Stringer and Joanna Cassidy.Â âMetamorphosing from obdurate nihilists into progenitors of House, Blackpoolâs SXXV are, inevitably, one ofÂ thegroups of this very post-punk momentâÂ (Chris Bohn,Â The WireÂ magazine)
