Department M - Headline Shows And 2013 Festival Dates Announced

Department M will release a second single, double a-side 'The Second Prize' / 'Absentia' through Too Pure on the 24th June.
Following on from debut 'I'll Fax You An Apology', released through Leeds label Hide & Seek records earlier in the year, this new release consolidates the abrasive beauty exhibited and shifts Department M's sound forward with brutalist pop economy.
Today we present 'Absentia'. Based around a flowing overdriven hip-hop drum loop and smooth swathes of analogue synthesizer, this is a track that uses space as an instrument. Eschewing the taut, tense feel of it's counterpart 'The Second Prize, 'Absentia' has a wide beauty and relief after the tension of the first side.
Now established as a hypnotic and pummeling live act, the last six months have seen Department M tour the UK with Menace Beach as well as taking in early summer festivals Live at Leeds and YO1. This summer they'll continue on the road with dates in support of this Too Pure Singles Club release and with festival slots at Beacons and Tramlines.
See Department M live:
26th June Leeds A Nation Of Shopkeepers
10th July London Hoxton Bar and Kitchen
21st July Tramlines Festival, Sheffield
18th August Beacons Festival, Skipton.
