Daniel Hunt and Jim Abbiss produced the forthcoming EP by Lush

According to Daniel Hunt:

"I have had to keep this quiet for over a year but now the secret is out. It is an honour and a pleasure to produce the first new music in 20 years from one of the most important bands of my youth. X".

More details here:

20 years after Lush's last studio recording and live show, one of the most greatly missed British bands of the Nineties have decided that 2016 is the time to put an end to the constant requests and are to play a series of shows in the spring, visiting America, the UK and mainland Europe. The tour will be preceded with a brand new EP, so it's a new beginning in more ways than one.

While there are plans further down the road to record an album, for now the new EP (as yet untitled, but it will be self-released) will feature four tracks, jointly written by the band's co-founders Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi. Production is being shared between Jim Abbiss and Daniel Hunt of Ladytron.

"Destroy Everything You Touch" makes number 30 in a BBC America Top 100

The outstanding "Destroy Everything You Touch" makes number 30 in BBC America's Top 100 Greatest British Songs of the 21st Century (So Far).

"While the Liverpool-bred group just barely missed the U.K. Top 40 with this stylish tune from 2005's Witching Hour, Ladytron's magnetic electro-pop became a cult favorite here thanks to its sensational soundscape of robotic beats, bewitching vocals, and icy synths. Remarkably just as fresh a decade on". – MacKenzie Wilson

"Witching Hour" was released 10 years ago today

The incredible Witching Hour was released 10 years ago on 3 October. This album is generally considered Ladytron's best and signified a pretty radical change of their style from the electropop of 604 and Light & Magic to a rockier/heavier sound. Witching Hour didn't age a bit and it still sounds fresh.

Ladytron featured on NME's The Famous Songs That Gifted These 23 Massive Bands Their Names list

"It's remarkable to think Liverpool's Ladytron formed as long ago as 1999, though the song they named themselves after was an ambient glam classic by Roxy Music from the early seventies. When Bryan and Brian performed on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1972, they famously upset host 'Whispering' Bob Harris by sounding too much like the future".
