American synthpop duo Iris will release its return album Radiant, its first album since 2010, at the end of October through Dependent Records. According to the official release, “On the succeeding [Blacklight] US tour… Andrew Sega and singer Reagan Jones fell out with each other, so the project was put on hold – actually forever. At one point though, a small spark was ignited when Reagan Jones sent Sega sketches for three songs. This spark rapidly grew when the two decided to work on another studio album yet again. With Radiant, Iris has been reborn, so to say…”
The album will also be available in a 2CD+2LP format, limited to 500 copies. Additionally, Iris has streamed the track “Don’t Cry” through its SoundCloud and offered a download of the track “Wayseer” through the Dependent website.
Iris was formed in 1993 by Reagan Jones and Mat Morris; Morris was replaced by Andrew Sega following the release of the band’s 1999 debut album, Disconnect.
