Industrial meets post punk meets noise rock trio Pop. 1280 are back with a new album, «Museum on the Horizon», “an industrial opus that epitomizes Pop. 1280’s drive to push themselves into new artistic territories, and to inspire each other to be bold and hold nothing back.” The excellence of the approach can be immediately gauged by the album’s second song, «Noncompliant».
The upcoming album will mark Pop. 1280’s fifth full-length and the first since 2019’s «Way Station». Upon their start in 2008, theirs was a “vision of rebelling against the music of the day and making their own soundtrack for the end times. Initially a noise rock outfit,” over time they incorporated “diverse influences of industrial, EBM, techno, and post-punk into their signature sound.” Ahead of the release of «Museum on the Horizon», the band has also released a video for «Not Too Deep», directed by founding member Chris Bug.
«Museum On The Horizon» is set for release on September 27 through Profound Lore on cd, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders can be found here (cd and digital) and here (vinyl).
