'65 Love Affair

Ten weeks after captivating the Cuba Cafe, 65DaysOfStatic
link return to Manchester, headlining a bill containing likeminded Mancunian sonic revolutionaries Day For Airstrikes, as part of their Rock Sound-sponsored tour for debut album 'The Fall of Math'. Released last September on Monotreme Records, 'The Fall of Math' became one of the most acclaimed debuts of last year. Topping many critics lists and gaining a sizeable and rapidly-growing set of devotees, it received praise across the board from the likes of Radio 1 and NME to Kerrang and Rock Sound. As well as being Radio 1 single of the week in November for Zane Lowe's Evening Session (for 'Retreat! Retreat!'), the band were also a favorite of the late John Peel, belatedly recording a session for his show towards the end of last year.

The 65DaysOfStatic sound is certainly difficult to categorize; indeed, few
bands can claim adoration from such a wide range of sources. It's a sound where guitars as ear-meltingly loud as they are soothing stand alongside a percussive force of live and computerized D n' B-esque beats. A sound encompassing every instrument from strings to glockenspiels to electronic samples; a marriage of post-rock and electronica that is ambitious and unique but never pretentious or inaccessible. It's seen the band compared to acts as disparate as Mogwai, Kraftwerk, Radiohead and Aphex Twin, all revered artists at opposite poles of the music spectrum.

In a musical climate obsessed with the past, here's a band that look more toward a future of infinite possibilities. 65DaysOfStatic don't want to be the sound of now or 30 years ago, they're too excited about what's ahead to think about staying still, 65hardcorerules.

“65DaysOfStatic, however, genuinely seem intent on gatecrashing a genre and redefining its boundaries. Their knack of infusing levitating Mogwai-esque ambience with skittish breakbeats is truly without precedent. 'The Fall of Math' is a cold, compelling, carefully crafted nightmare of a record that has the potential to turn your blood to vodka if you listen to it on a bad day” Kerrang KKKK

“It took Radiohead three albums to become this adventurous. Instead of
sounding like some scrappy, mix-genre soundclash, 65DaysOfStatic take your preconceptions and smash them into a million pieces. Go home, take your safe indie-punk records and burn them. 65DaysOfStatic have their heads in 2007 and everyone else is thirty years behind… Magnificent. It's clear that 'The Fall of Math' was created to worship the beauty of music.” Simon Smerdon- Playlouder

” 65DaysOfStatic have won tonight's 'Fresh Meat' with a phenomenal
response!!… truly deserved. This band are gonna be massive and we're proud to be there along side them.” Zane Lowe, Radio One Evening Session

“A big, brooding piece of work…” Steve Lamacq- Radio One Lamacq Live

“We've got to the point now where we can confidently say if the music is
coming at you, then just stop what you're doing, go without food, walk barefoot over glass and just move heaven and earth to get it. Now we were expecting good things (we've told you about 65Days before) and it comes as no surprise that 'The Fall of Math' is THRILLINGLY BRILLIANT….. I'm not sure if we were expecting so much warmth, depth and sheer emotion. So much restrained emotional all encompassing power here, they'll install a beak in your heart.” – Organ – Album Of The Week
