Pendulum will return with a new double A Side tomorrow (17 September), and launch their new concept Trinity.

‘Nothing for Free/Driver’ will be the first release by the drum and bass band and will mark their return from a 10 year hiatus.

The A Side will follow 2010’s Immersion which topped the album charts upon its release.

“We’ve been working on some new tracks for a while now and it’s great to finally get them out,” says frontman Rob Swire, adding that they have been introducing new music in Australia and New Zealand since before the lockdown, making necessary adjustments along the way in order to ensure that everything sounds right.

Pendulum’s Trinity concept is known to the fans already, after a series of successful appearances in festivals last year, including Ultra Japan and New Zealand’s Electric Avenue. The Trinity production consists of Pendulum’s original founding members, Rob Swire (Anscenic), Gareth McGrillen (Speed) and Paul Harding (El Hornet) who team up for the first time after 10 years.

The artwork, designed by Rob Swire also doubles up as a phenakistoscope, an animated design which turns the static images into moving pictures when played on a 45rpm record player and viewed through a phone camera at 25fps.

The band has already teased ‘Nothing for Free’ during their shows in Sydney and home town of Perth and have introduced a vocal performance of the track during the Rampage Takeover they hosted back in March. ‘Driver’, on the other hand, served as an intro to the band’s appearance in SW4 in London last year.

Swire said about Trinity, that it’s “the perfect touring model for us right now, it gives us the freedom to test out our new music on the road like we did in the early days, whilst still being able to headline the biggest events and bring a huge, bespoke new show to our audiences.”

Pendulum Trinity have already been booked to perform as headliners in major festivals next year, such as We Are FSTVL, Ultra Europe, Boomtown, Creamfields, EDC Vegas, Let It Roll, Lowlands and more.
