Press Release:

808 STATE

on Saturday 3rd August
New album - 7th October 2002
Outpost Transmission
Circus FYL012

808 State drew a crowd of 40,000 people to one of Europe's biggest free music events last weekend when they headlined a concert in Manchester to close the Commonwealth Games. This concert heralded the return to form of one of Manchester's most pivotal acts. Accompanied by a stunning light and laser display which lit up the night sky in Manchester's city centre, the band performed all their classic tracks along with previewing tunes from their amazing new album Outpost Transmission. 808 State were joined by members of Elbow and Simian. As the band came on stage the crowd erupted and the police had to seal off the centre to stop overcrowding and beg the local radio station to stop advertising the event.

The new album was recorded earlier this year at Testa Rossa Studios in Manchester and features collaborations with Elbow vocalist Guy Garvey on the atmospheric 'Lemonsoul', Simon Lord the singer from Simian on the angular '606' and The Reverend D.Wayne Love and Larry Love the vocalists from Alabama 3 on the brooding 'Crossword'. The Full track listing is: 606 / Chopsumwong Wheatstraw / Boogieman I Fat German / Lemonsoul / Roundbum Mary / Dissadis / Bent / Box 0 Cream / Crossword / Afrodark / Slowboat / Yoyo.

808 State were formed in 1988 by Graham Massey, Martin Price and Gerald Simpson. They recorded the legendary Newbuild for their own label Creed that is often sited as one of the greatest dance albums of all time. The line-up changed to Massey, Andy Barker and Darren Partington who went onto enjoy huge global success with albums like Excel, 808:90 and Gorgeous. They were recently cited by the two leading UK music publications Q and NME as being one of the five most important bands from Manchester. They are without doubt one of the most influential UK dance acts ever and their legendary tracks 'Pacific State' and 'C├╝bik' are ground breaking musical landmarks that have inspired a legion of acolytes.

This album consolidates all their musical strengths and is a reminder of how important this group's influence has been on the UK music scene. 808 State will be putting together a full UK tour for November.
