ALARMIST :: Popular Demain Album Launch

Plus special guests Leo Drezden

If there was ever a band certain to make music capable of transcending the math rock niche and permeating into the mainstream, Dublin’s Alarmist are the candidates….Alarmist’s new album…will push electronic instrumental rock to its next evolutionary peak.Fecking Bahamas magazine

On Friday 6th November, Alarmist will mark the launch of their long-awaited debut full-length, Popular Demain, returning from their European tour to put on a very special show at Dublin’s Sugar Club with Ensemble Music.

Popular Demain is an almost orchestral expanse of colour and meandering lines, tightly wrought around Alarmist’s rhythmic core of double drums and guitars. A natural evolution from the sound established in their previous EPs, the album carries on the genre-defying fusion of influences that has gained the band a growing international following. Primitive Korgs, Casios and tape-degraded voice samples find themselves densely packed with an organic mass of winds, percussion and prepared piano, forming a soundworld that somehow finds common ground for jazz-infused math-rock, warped experimental pop melodies and brutalist slabs of pulsing electronics.

Popular Demain will be released on November 2nd 2015 via UK label Small Pond Recordings. 12” Vinyl and CDs of the new album will be available for purchase at the gig, and a number of sweet bundle deals with tickets are available.

Support comes from the supremely talented Leo Drezden, whose member Rian Trench is the recording maverick who engineered Popular Demain in his Co. Wicklow studio, The Meadow.

Dublin-based band Alarmist’s members have backgrounds in jazz, rock, electronica and even classical composition. The music that comes out of this indicates that the next generation of musicians will blow up the walls around the old established styles and genres.” Sveriges Radio
