Fuck Buttons have today confirmed the release of a new album called ‘Slow Focus’ on 22 July 2013 via ATP Recordings.

The record follows 2010’s ‘Tarot Sport’, which landed the ambient noise duo on the cover of Loud And Quiet 16 that year.

“Slow Focus seemed like a very apt title when considering the sentiment of the music,” says the group’s Benjamin John Power. “It almost feels like the moment your eyes take to readjust when waking, and realising you’re in a very unusual and not a particularly welcoming place. We like to think that we create our own new landscapes, and with this it’s a very alien one.”

It is thought that the band will preview material from the new record at the below dates.
