Information Society to release covers albumVeteran electronic/synthpop act Information Society has announced its latest album, titled Orders of Magnitude, slated for release on March 11 on Hakatak Records. The album features reinterpretations of songs that the band credits as influential to the evolution of InSoc’s music, including a cover of “Heffalumps and Woozles” from Disney’s Winnie the Pooh, featuring a guest vocal performance by Ayria. Other tracks on the album include The Human League’s hit “Don’t You Want Me,” Heaven 17’s “(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang,” and “Capital I” from Sesame Street. Orders of Magnitude follows on the success of 2014’s _Hello World, which featured a reunion of the band’s founding members – Paul Robb, Kurt Harland Larson, and James Cassidy. Robb originally founded the Hakatak label in 1996 following the end of InSoc’s contract with Warner Bros. subsidiary Tommy Boy, releasing all Information Society material since Robb’s return to the band in 2006.
Pre-orders for Orders of Magnitude are now available via Amazon and Bandcamp.
