Moderat Readies New Single
- Words: Glenn Jackson
For those who have been waiting since January—when the outfit first announced its forthcoming sophomore LP—to hear new material from Moderat (a.k.a. Modeselektor and Apparat), the wait is almost over with the announcement that the group will drop the first single from its II LP in early July. The upcoming 10" will highlight album cut "Bad Kingdom," with the original tune and an instrumental version accounting for each side of the record. The single is set to drop July 12, to be followed in August by Moderat's II LP which will see a release via Mute. While no audio preview is available, the "Bad Kingdom" 10" can be pre-ordered via Modeselektor's Monkeytown label here, and its artwork is included below.
