They certainly have an active appearance calendar, huge amount of travel.
I first found about them 5 or 6 years ago from the video "Seventeen" which was really unique in sound and appearance. They still are uncopied in style, I'd classify them as electro-pop.
Compare that to the electro-house music style which has hundreds of new tracks released every week for the last few years and most of it has been so so generic and boring right from the start, I don't know why it's so popular.
the new album has been released on itunes as a pre-release,you guys. i didn't purchase as i have my cd album pre-ordered from insound but i had been listening to the songs on their myspace and i think it sounds stunning! the entire album is so strong. i am going to have tough time choosing a top album for 2008 because its looking like a three-way tie at this juncture..haha
i agree with you about mira. i adore kletva and deep blue.
love that vid. i watched it a couple weeks ago and was taken aback by the visuals and it really suits that song.
has anybody indentified the male vocals on versus? i was thinking that it was mayber one of the guys in the band,vicarious bliss who assisted the production or perhaps even a distorted mira or helen like karin in the knife.....but it's bewildered me as i know ladytron has never had male vocals.
