The Bloody Beetroots announce long-awaited new LP ‘The Great Electronic Swindle’

This post was originally published on this site

Masked mayhem maker and electro punk pioneer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo has officially announced the release of the Bloody Beetroots‘ long-awaited third studio album, The Great Electronic Swindle. The new record will feature a slew of musical talent from outside of the electronic music spectrum, ranging from Aussie rockers JET to Anders Friden of In Flames to most recently, self-proclaimed EDM hater Perry Farrell on the album’s new single “Pirates, Punks, and Politics” released today with the album’s announcement.

Rifo, who is celebrating his masked moniker’s tenth anniversary in 2017, has always maintained a renegade association with electronic music, and his new album, loaded with collaborations, is expected to continue the artistic progression of the Bloody Beetroots’ rebellious relationship with dance music. Regarding the record’s unapologetic title, Rifo explains,

“The title is a tribute to the Sex Pistols and the film ‘The Great Rock and Roll Swindle’ directed by Julian Temple.  It was a sign of the end of an era. The end of Punk.  I want to reclaim that for electronic music because the business squeezed the genre so much that they delivered the end of electronic music itself.  We are living in a great electronic swindle.”

The Great Electronic Swindle is due October 20 via Canadian imprint Last Gang. Stream the Bloody Beetroot’s latest, “Pirates, Punks, and Politics” here.

FIRST LOOK: The Bloody Beetroots issue gut-wrenching new single, ‘Saint Bass City Rockers’

Earlier this month The Bloody Beetroots dropped an adrenaline packed single which alerted fans of the project to potential resurrection of the visceral project. Today, July 31, the producer proves he’s back in a big way with another gut wrenching release.

“Saint Bass City Rockers,” which makes its premiere as a Dancing Astronaut exclusive first look, is a sinuous instrumental track of cinematic proportions. Strung out over five minutes, the track’s narrative veers through a freaky, TR-303 laden intro straight into an intergalactic electro rock jam. Though the track’s synth backbone keeps the song pounding from start to finish, it features a number of sonic twists and turns and even some far east instrumentation.

“I imagined this voyage as I wrote the song,” says producer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo of the track. “A long voyage, an electronic mantra that is articulated with different melodies, touching various spots around the world from California, India, Norway and England.”

Rifo’s aggressive, mask and leather clad alter ego has long been revered for his visceral, heavy synth brand of electronic music. This year marks the project’s 10 year anniversary and—after a few years of radio silence from the prolific moniker—Rifo is celebrating in a huge way with a series of releases and announcements that he will continue to tease out through the end of summer.

As his surprise release “My Name Is Thunder” continues to rack up an impressive amount of traction, many fans have been left speculating about a potential LP on the way. Whether Rifo’s reprisal is a long term one remains to be seen as the producer has enjoyed enduring success with his releases under his own name and a string of successful production credits as well.
