The return of Pendulum is imminent after the iconic drum & bass outfit shared a cryptic message via social media.
The group, who have remained dormant for ten years on the music front, took to social media today to tease a new project and send their rabid fanbase into a rabbit hole of theories. They shared a short promo video that is as arcane as humanly possible, with no audio and a dark, kaleidoscopic visual. While it could technically mean any number of things on the horizon, like a new livestream or merchandise collection, the EDM community is nonetheless abuzz with hopes of new music. Pendulum's last official release came back in 2010 with their full-length album Immersion, which featured global hits "Watercolour," "Witchcraft," and "Crush," among others.
Back in February 2020, Pendulum performed in Perth, Australia and dropped the curtain on a new song called "Nothing for Free," offering a glimpse into the ushering in of a new Pendulum era. The debut followed a previous preview shared by Rob Swire, the group's founder and vocalist, who simply called it a "30 second WIP demo" at the time.
