On 13 September 2011 in the US and a day earlier in the UK, Ladytron will release their new album Gravity the Seducer, the follow-up to 2008's Velocifero, via Nettwerk. The group recorded the album in the English countryside, with Arctic Monkeys/Editors collaborator Barny Barnicott co-producing.
In a press release, Daniel Hunt said: "Gravity the Seducer is more of a jump than the last album was, more ethereal and melodic, a touch more abstract in places than we've gone before, baroque 'n' roll. It was a pleasure to make, took us right through last summer. It's our best record, in my opinion".
Over the next few months, the group has a few shows planned in Europe and Asia. Mira Aroyo will also do a few North American DJ dates.
