Transcript

  • 1.  Pendulum are an Australian electronic rock/drum & bass band founded in 2002 in Perth by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen and Paul Harding.  When Pendulum were formed, their musical style was considerably more drum and bass sounding, than the work they are known for today. Signature tunes such as "Masochist", "Vault", "Back 2 You" and "Voyager", which were released on labels such as Uprising Records, Renegade Hardware and Low Profile Records, have a darker, more a melodic air to them which is substantially absent from their later productions, which are generally leaning heavily towards a mainstream, dance-driven sound.  Pendulum's current musical style consists of a fusion of electronic and alternative rock, with the inclusion of acoustic instruments.
  • 2.  Rob Swire (vocals/synth/producer)  Gareth McGrillen (bass guitar/DJ)  Peredur ap Gwynedd (guitar)  Paul 'El Hornet' Harding (DJ)  KJ Sawka (drums)
  • 3.  Studio albums  Hold Your Colour (2005)  In Silico (2008)  Immersion (2010)
  • 4.  Five singles were produced from the album, including "Slam / Out Here", the first single by Pendulum to reach the top forty in the UK Singles Chart. In addition, a non-album single , "Blood Sugar / Axle Grinder", released on 18 June 2007, was later appended to the reissue of Hold Your Colour due to its popularity.  The album was mastered by Stuart Hawkes at Metropolis in London.It was released in 2005 and reissued in 2007 by Breakbeat Kaos. The album cover inspired the single cover for later Pendulum release "Witchcraft".  225,000 copies of Hold Your Colour were sold in the UK.  "Slam" was featured in the soundtrack for the video game MotorStorm on the PlayStation 3 console, on Dance Dance Revolution Universe on the Xbox 360 console and on the premiere episode of Sky1’s Gladiators
  • 5. In Silico is the second full-length studio album by Australian band Pendulum, released in Australia and Europe on 12 May 2008 by Warner Music UK, and in America on 13 May 2008 by Atlantic. The album represents a change in sound from the band's debut album Hold Your Colour, away from drum and bass, incorporating more rock and electronic influences. The expression "in silico", from which the album title is derived, is used to mean "performed on computer or via computer simulation", however group member Gareth McGrillen also commented on the way it plays upon Nirvana's well-known album title In Utero (meaning "born naturally" or "of the uterus") and thus carries extra shades of meaning related to being "born synthetically",thus explaining the album's cover motif of a baby or fetus displayed inside a circular design (likely representing a synthetic ovum), and the circuits around the ovum clearly resembling sperm, which in turn references the blend of natural and synthesised sounds of the music therein.
  • 6.  The album was announced in early 2009, with the name being confirmed in December 2009. The album was released May 21, 2010 in Australia and Ireland, and May 24 for the rest of the world, followed by a UK tour of the album.  The album was finished on 18 April 2010 and mastered by Brian Gardner at Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios in Los Angeles.  Immersion peaked at number 1 in the UK Official Top 40 charts in its first week of release.  "Watercolour” was released as the first single from the album on 1 May 2010. It managed to reach number 4 in the UK singles chart
