Brooklyn-based duo Games will release an LP under their own names this June.
It will be the first time Ford (of Tigercity) and Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) have released together under their given names, with previous material always credited to their Games moniker. The initial single from Channel Pressure—titled "Emergency Room"—is said to be a limited edition x-ray picture disc. Due for release on April 26th, it will contain remixes from Gavin Russom and The Bug.
The album itself will follow the story of teenager Joel Rogers, who lives in a time when bands are extinct and the record industry is controlled by a super-computer. An anti-hero, it's Rogers' dream to "unplug from reality and jam in the style of his MIDI-equipped ancestors."
A video made available by the duo elaborates on the theme and provides samples of the music.
