http://herculesandloveaffair.net/HLAi... - OUT NOW - The New Hercules & Love Affair Album.

Taken from the album, 'The Feast of the Broken Heart'.

"Only a fool would dismiss Butler's expansive vision and flair for daring reinvention." - Mixmag : 8/10

It's Butler's precision on the boards that's most impressive here - his polished, spacious touch is pumped with enough groove to win over any dance floor without inhibitions" - DJ Magazine : 8.5/10

The Guardian : 4/5

"It's back to 1989 for this amazing Acid House collection featuring vocals by John Grant" - Daily Star

With 2011's Blue Songs running the gamut from full-blown disco and jacking house to the more experimental, Hercules & Love Affair's new album 'The Feast Of The Broken Heart' sees another musical reinvention from ringmaster Andy Butler - delivered by an impeccable new line up.

The ever-revolving collective led house music's resurgence with club anthem 'Blind' in 2008 (Pitchfork's record of the year), and 2014's line up is another roll call of exceptionally talented vocalists. BRITS nominee John Grant's ability for translating hardship into elegance is writ large on 'I Try To Talk To You' and 'Liberty'; Rouge Mary, whose deep, spiritual voice is hewn from a gospel education; Belgian singer Gustaph whose counter tenor takes lead on the single 'Do You Feel The Same?' and smoky voiced virtuoso Krystle Warren, who was introduced to Butler by Grant, and sings the provocative 'My Offence'.

Andy Butler comments: "I wanted nasty basslines, stormy, bleary-eyed sounds, fiery, rough, tough and ragged old school house productions that sounded almost techno. I didn't want polite, I wanted aggressive."

This aesthetic coupled with tales of emotional triumph makes for something tough yet soulful. Meaningful house music that IS pop music and can speak to the most musically adroit of tastes.

Kicking off proceedings is the dancefloor single 'Do You Feel The Same?', a jacking pop anthem released 14th April, with B-sides 'Raid' (a late night dancefloor banger replete with sirens) and 'Working Miracles' (a sample led journey into the more experimental side of Hercules & Love Affair).

'The Feast Of The Broken Heart' is co-produced by Ha-Ze Factory and industrial stalwart Mark Pistel and is out now Moshi Moshi & Bib Beat / Atlantic.

One of dance music's finest live acts Hercules & Love Affair are set to announce a full run of summer shows and festivals - full details here:
