John Foxx And The Maths Live Dates: ‘Interplay’ UK Tour 2011 OCTOBER 13 Leamington Spa Assembly Rooms (£18.50) 20 Bristol Theckla (£20) 21 Manchester Academy 4 (£20) 22 Liverpool Stanley Theatre (£20) 23 Glasgow Arches (£20) 24 York Duchess (£20) 25 London XOYO (£22.50) 27 London XOYO (£22.50) 28 Holmfirth Picturedrome (£20) ‘Interplay’ Reviews: 'One of the finest electronic records you’ll hear in 2011.’ THE QUIETUS ‘Meeting of synth-fetishists is a triumph.’ **** MOJO ‘Foxx has released an album which equals the high points of his rich back catalogue.’ BBC.CO.UK ‘One of the most enlightened synth records in years.’ **** THE STOOL PIGEON ‘Foxx is still sounding relevant.’ **** ARTROCKER 'A masterclass' **** NEWS OF THE WORLD 'A great album.' **** RECORD COLLECTOR ‘Robo-pop bliss.’ CLASSIC ROCK ‘The Maths turn out to be a superb foil for Foxx.’ THE WIRE John Foxx And The Maths will be performing material from their new album Interplay (bonus tracks will also be made available in October) as well as classic songs from early Ultravox and Foxx's solo career. Interplay is a collaboration between Foxx and electronic composer and synthesizer collector, Benge (Ben Edwards). The latter is best known for his 2008 album Twenty Systems, which was described by Brian Eno as a ‘brilliant contribution to the archeology of electronic music.’ Moody and atmospheric, but also full of songs that are actually more 'pop' than avant garde, Interplay pulls various strands of electronic music together – from early ‘80s electro to '70s Krautrock, even flashes of Cabaret Voltaire and Foxx’s first band, Ultravox. One track, ‘Watching A Building On Fire’ features Mira Aroyo from Ladytron, who also came up with the original synth riff. Foxx and Benge will be joined on stage by two performers who are also solo musicians in their own right - Serafina Steer (Keyboards, Bass) and Hannah Peel (Keyboards, Violin). John Foxx formed Ultravox in the 70s and has worked with a wide range of artists including Brian Eno, Krautrock producer Conny Plank, Paul Daley from Leftfield, Cocteau Twins guitarist, Robin Guthrie and I, Robot director Alex Proyas. ''Foxx's music still sounds futuristic, accompanied by flickering footage and images of design that never dates: imagined cityscapes, endless motorways. As these time machines whirr to silence, it's clear that Mr Foxx is still fantastic.'' NME review of John Foxx, the London Roundhouse, June 2010

The new album, features a mixture of new songs, instrumental tracks and specially commissioned remixes and will be available exclusively on the Tour and through the Official website www.numan.co.uk . Dead Son Rising is co-written and co-produced by Numan’s musical collaborator for the last six years, Ade Fenton. This is the first of two albums that Numan has been working on at the same time – the second, Splinter will receive a full worldwide release in 2012. Numan, who recently returned from a very successful tour of Australia and New Zealand, also appears as a guest vocalist on two new albums by Battles (on the track ‘My Machines’) and South Central (‘Crawl’). Later this year he’s set to appear at the Battles curated Nightmare Before Christmas on 10 December. As the NME argued recently, ‘Numan’s influence on electronic music is unparalleled.’ He’s been namechecked as an influence by everyone from Kanye West to Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age, and an ever-growing list of artists have covered and sampled his music. These range from Basement Jaxx to Damon Albarn; Afrika Bambaataa to RZA and GZA from the Wu-Tang Clan. www.numan.co.uk www.facebook.com/garynumanofficial www.twitter.com/numanofficial
