The album, produced by Korn and Slipknot producer Ross Robinson in Los Angeles, features 10 tracks -- including the officially leaked 'Flashover' -- and will be released on Aug. 23. It will be preceded by the single 'Echoes' on Aug. 16.
The announcement marks a year where momentum has finally started swinging Klaxons' way again. Before that, rumours of rejected recording sessions and canned albums abounded in the wake of 2007's hugely successful debut LP 'Myths of the Near Future.' The group's vocalist Jamie Reynolds even admitted to the NME in March last year that the band had been asked to record parts of the album again.
Since then the group have cited shamanism and voodoo as influences for 'Surfing the Void,' though direct evidence of that isn't immediately apparent in the already available 'Flashover.'
The group had already returned to the live scene last month, and still have sell-out club shows in Glasgow's King Tut's (July 13), Manchester's Ruby Lounge (July 14) and London's Village Underground (July 27) remaining. Also touring the European festival circuit, including Pohoda in Slovakia (July 8 to 10) and Spain's Benicassim (July 15 to 17,) the group will return to Britain to play Reading and Leeds festivals on the August Bank Holiday weekend.
The full tracklisting of the album is:
'Surfing the Void'
'Valley of the Calm Trees'
