POp 1280

Pop. 1280 release their third album, Paradise, on Friday (1/22) via Sacred Bones. For those unfamiliar, the Brooklyn band like it the bleaker the better, recalling '80s gothy postpunk and industrial. The new album is a refutation of our technology obsessed culture. You can check out "Chromida" and "Pyramids on Mars" from the LP below.

The band will celebrate, in their own way, Paradise's release with a show at Brooklyn's Alphaville on Saturday (1/23) with Bambara and The Sediment Club. Tickets are on sale. Pop. 1280 will then go on a short North American tour in February, followed by UK and European dates in the spring. All dates are listed below.
