Apparat & Modeselektor's project will release its second album in August.
German trio Moderat today revealed news of their second album, II.
The outfit, which consists of Modeselektor (AKA Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary) and Apparat (real name Sascha Ring), released their first full-length, Moderat, in 2009. II will see release on the Modeselektor-helmed Monkeytown Records.
The trio are quoted as saying: "We have known each other for 12 years now, and during that time we haven't really changed that much: We are still three guys mostly talking about hi-hats and tape machines while hanging out in the studio." They added: "Moderat as a fusion of Modeselektor and Apparat is a mutual path that hasn't been and will never be easy. Well, it's simply more than 'just' making music together. It is, again and again, an experiment of exploring our similarities and differences and to interlace them to something new and exciting." The tracklisting for the album has not yet been revealed, though the label has confirmed it will be released on 2xCD and 2xLP formats.
Monkeytown Records will release Moderat's II on August 2nd, 2013.
