The remix package sees the Bangor three-piece enlist Chicago house music pioneer Derrick Carter, Manchester DJ Ruf Dug and prolific Welsh producer High Contrast, each reworking highlights from the band’s critically acclaimed third UK Top 5 album, ‘False Alarm’, out now via Prolifica Inc [PIAS].
Following a landmark headline performance in front of 35,000 people at London’s Community Festival last summer, the 2019 festival season has seen Two Door Cinema Club complete outstanding performances at Radio 1’s Big Weekend and on Glastonbury’s Other Stage. Elsewhere, headline slots at Tramlines, Victorious, Rock en Seine, Deichbrand, Rock Wrechter, and Truck Festival saw DIY Magazine confirm, “they’ve had the crowd-pleasing hits for years, but now the trio have the stage craft and the sparkle, too”.
Marking the band’s first album to be released in full collaboration with Prolifica Inc, new album ‘False Alarm’ sees Two Door Cinema Club at their creative peak. Recorded in sessions between London and LA with producer Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, The Killers), it’s an LP that takes the familiar and twists it to startling and stimulating effect. A wide-eyed, culture-encompassing leap forward for the band with a record liable to break, ruin and remould pop in 2019.
