Fuck Buttons Readies Third LP, Announces Summer Tour

Though its constituents have been busy with their separate projects since the release of 2009's excellent, XLR8R Pick'd Tarot Sport, Fuck Buttons itself has remained practically dormant, releasing little more than a single track during the four-year span. That's all about to change, however, as Benjamin John Power and Andrew Hung have stealthily reconvened to announce the impending release of their third full-length album. Called Slow Focus, the seven-song record is apparently Fuck Buttons' first ever self-produced album. Speaking on his duo's new LP, Power says, "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." The announcement also arrives with a list of summer and fall tour dates for Fuck Buttons, which will take place throughout Europe, the UK, and Australia. That list of upcoming performances can be found below, underneath the tracklist and artwork for Slow Focus, which is scheduled for release on July 23 via ATP.
