Sonic Animation re-forms for new album

Dig out the three-quarter pants: Sonic Animation is back. Dedicated fans may have already heard the news that, five years after they said goodbye, the tongue-in-cheek dance duo is at work on a new album. A couple of months ago, Rupert Keiller and Adrian Cartwright revealed a new Sonic Animation remix for ‘world music’ outfit Delhi 2 Dublin, following it with the announcement that they are back in the studio.

The last time we saw Sonic Animation on-stage was in the Boiler Room at Big Day Out back in 2006, when they stepped in to replace Mylo. Their raved-up live show was never complete without an appearance from the band’s furry mascots Robert Roley and Theophilus Thistler. The second and third Sonic Animation albums – Orchid for the Afterworld and Reality by Deception – spawned their biggest tracks Theophilus Thistler, I’m a DJ and Love Lies Bleeding. In 2005, they signed off with a ‘best of’ package Eleven.

It’s fair to assume that the new album will be followed by a comeback tour, and we can’t help thinking it’s somewhat fateful that Homebake is doing its ‘Classics Edition’ in 2011.
