Seeing the light of day today is the pulsating single ‘Riddley Scott Walker‘ which features a guest turn from former Bad Seed & Magazine man Barry Adamson. Drawing its title from the Russell Hoban novel Riddley Walker, which imagines a post-nuclear war future in which society has regressed and history has been obliterated to such an extent its open to widespread misinterpretation, it’s a fitting marker for an album rooted in industrial fallout and how technology and tradition can have equally hazardous impacts on our future.

A Life Diagrammatic is due out on the 22nd of September. Singles from the album so far include ‘Trauma Mosaic‘, ‘Service Stationed‘ and ‘The Common Cold‘.
