Washington, DC based electro/industrial group Technophobia will celebrate the release of a new full-length album, Flicker Out, on July 17th with a launch party at The Black Cat. Flicker Out is, according to band members Katie and Stephen Petix, “a unique sonic brew of synthesizers, sampling, layers, and sound manipulation alongside themes of isolation, existential thought, and loss.” A supporting tour is slated for fall 2016.
In addition, the duo has partnered with Working Order Records, a non-profit label whose releases are limited run vinyl pressings, with proceeds going directly to the charity of the artist’s choice. All profits from the album and its first single, Negative Space, will go to DC non-profit Life Pieces to Masterpieces, which “uses artistic expression to develop character and leadership, unlock potential, and prepare African American boys and young men to transform their lives and community.”
Negative Space is now available via Bandcamp, featuring remixes by hERETICS iN tHE lAB, Void Vision, and Alter Der Ruine. Flicker Out is available for pre-order now at the label’s website.
