Mark #1 album with ‘Immersion’ arena tour
Pendulum’s year continues to go from strength to strength. Following the weekend’s sensational guest show with The Prodigy in front of 70,000 people at the National Bowl in Milton Keynes, Pendulum can now confirm details of their ‘Immersion’ arena tour – their biggest to date – that’s scheduled for December.
Named after their recently released chart-topping album, the ‘Immersion’ tour is Pendulum’s second major live experience in the UK this year and follows their sold-out tour in May that included a landmark show at London’s Wembley Arena. The ‘Immersion’ tour, scheduled as below, sees Pendulum playing bigger dates than ever before and features special guests Hadouken!

3rd – London, Wembley Arena
4th – Nottingham, Trent FM Arena
7th – Bournemouth, BIC

10th – Aberdeen, AECC
Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday July 30th at a price of £25 for London and £22.50 for all other dates. They’re available from the 24 hour credit card hotlines on 0844 811 0051 / 0844 826 2826 or online at www.gigsandtours.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
In addition to the ‘Immersion’ tour, Pendulum are also set to be one of the hottest tips on this summer’s festival circuit with an eclectic range of special outdoor shows including London’s Victoria Park on July 30th as guests to Tiesto and Sonisphere on August 1st where they’re second on the bill to Iron Maiden. They’ll conclude this year’s festival season by headlining the NME / Radio 1 Stage at the Leeds (August 27th) and Reading (August 28th) festivals.
‘Immersion’ heralds a glorious evolution in the Pendulum sound. Following the cinematic orchestration of opening track ‘Genesis’, the album erupts into life with ‘Salt in the Wounds’ which harks back to the band’s underground drum & bass roots. Those roots are echoed through ‘Immersion’, with ‘Crush’ bursting with frenetically visceral beats, while the collaboration with The Prodigy’s Liam Howlett on ‘Immunize’ adds an intense industrial undercurrent to its melodic sonic energy.
Despite remaining loyal to their roots, ‘Immersion’ finds Pendulum embracing a greater sense of eclecticism than ever before. The result of joining forces with Swedish metal kings In Flames on ‘Self Vs. Self’ is a groundbreaking fusion between drum & bass and metal that recalls the great cross-genre evolution that Public Enemy and Anthrax developed on ‘Bring The Noise.’ By contrast, ‘The Fountain’, which features Porcupine Tree leader Steven Wilson, embraces both artists’ eagerness to experiment with progressive arrangements and ambient textures.
