French label Bitume Productions has today unveiled a new compilation, titled Planète Magnifiée, paying tribute to American alternative post-grunge and art rock act Failure. Available now as a name-your-price item on Bandcamp, the collection features 19 artists across a broad range of styles – from industrial and alternative metal to synthwave to straightforward rock – with participating artists including dreDDup, Illusionaut, Ryan Schlotterbeck, AD79, Superchained, Feral Beast, Kaamosmasennus, Nick Hollow, and more. The compilation title translates in English to “Magnified Planet,” recalling Failure’s 1994 sophomore album Magnified and the Fantastic Planet follow-up from 1996; the latter album was Failure’s last release before dissolving in 1997, the band famously reuniting in late 2013, and releasing The Heart is a Monster in 2015, In the Future Your Body Will Be the Furthest Thing from Your Mind in 2018, and 2021’s Wild Type Droid. The band is reportedly in the studio working on new material, having released the We Are Hallucinations live album and concert film this past July. Bitume Productions will also be releasing a second compilation devoted entirely to Fantastic Planet on December 8.
