Pendulum have released their brand new, anticipated EP ‘Anima’, out now via Virgin Music Group / Mushroom Group.

The EP features 4 tracks including recent singles ‘Colourfast’ and ‘Halo’, with the latter featuring Bullet For My Valentine’s lead singer Matt Tuck. Acclaimed rising UK metal/underground hip hop artist Scarlxrd also features on the EP, on the anticipated track ‘Mercy Killing’.

Of the EP and working with Scarlxrd, Pendulum’s Rob Swire says:

“We generally get bored very easily and suffer from artistic ADHD, so when the opportunity came through to work with an artist as different as Scarlxrd, we jumped at the chance. We met on a chilly afternoon in March and set Ableton to a whopping 184 bpm, a tempo so shocking that we'd surely be thrown in the gulag if drum'n'bass was a totalitarian regime.

It very quickly became clear that Scar was one of our favourite people that we've ever had in the studio. He's pure energy. Nothing was off-limits. Trap verse? Let's do it. Slightly-more-pop-punk-than-usual chorus? Fuck it, let's go. Hell, at some point even "Be My Lover" by La Bouche was in there somewhere and we had to delete it out of concern for public safety (and also the impending copyright issues).

'Silent Spinner' is one of the darker tracks we've done. For optimal listening experience, try moving to London and listen to it at 3 a.m. when you're having a bad week and you've just been splashed by a bus.”

The band will return to the UK for their arena tour next year. It will be their biggest UK tour in over ten years with some of their biggest shows ever.

Pendulum’s UK arena tour dates are as follows:

  • 24th March - First Direct Arena, Leeds
