It’s the middle of summer, but that doesn’t stop us from working 24/7. We just finished a 3 day residency in our hometown Nijmegen at Extrapool. It was pretty special as we’ve been working on a completely new set together with Tilburg-based techno honcho Drvg Cvltvre.

The new material premiered last Monday at the great Valkhof Festival and the response was pretty overwhelming. Read some cool reviews below:

“De combinatie van klanken sleept zich voort zonder saai te worden en wordt ondertussen zo nu en dan gedecoreerd met korter durende geluiden. Spannend. Compromisloos. De lichtinstallatie bekrachtigt dit visueel.”
3VOOR12 Gelderland

“Het is niet de makkelijkste kost die de festivalgangers door Drvg Cvltvre en Dead Neanderthals wordt voorgeschoteld, maar indruk maken doet het wel. Als het stuk na veertig minuten ineens over is lijkt de tijd te zijn gevlogen en is de conclusie gerechtvaardigd dat sprake is van een zeer geslaagde samenwerking. De visuele LED installatie van Naïvi mag tot slot niet onvermeld blijven; het zorgt voor een gelukkig niet te overdadige en zeer fraaie visuele ondersteuning”
Opduvel

“Een lange dikke trip dus, waarbij de sax van Kokke weer eens onherkenbaar in de mix zit. Alhoewel, het is nauwelijks te herkennen als sax-geluid, maar je kunt er dus ook fijne dikke drones mee produceren. Daar onderdoor razen de drums intens voort en de elektronische geluiden van DRVG CVLTVRE dwarrelen er omheen. Nou kijk en luister hier bijvoorbeeld en oordeel zelf, al had je natuurlijk gewoon beter zelf bij deze monstertrip moeten zijn”

Utech LogoFirst of all: thanks to Keith for having us at Utech Records Music Festival III. It was great to hang out with all the great bands and to perform together with Sten Ove Toft! Talking about Sten Ove Toft, we made an exclusive track for Utech Records that was released on a very limited one-sided 7″ lathe cut to celebrate 10 years of Utech Records. The track is called Hollow and can be streamed / downloaded here or by clicking play below

We took an extremely limited number of 7″es with us on the plane, so if you want to buy a copy from us: act fast!

The other gig we did at Elastic Arts in Chicago was also fantastic. Check out the great review of the event right here.

The Endless Voids release is a bit more problematic. Before our trip to the States we received both 2CD and 2LP versions, however the 2LP version was fucked up at the plant. We’re resolving the issue at this very moment and will keep you updated on the status of the 2LP. The 2CD version looks and sounds great and can be ordered through our Bandcamp.

Last but not least, we’re planning a ton of shows for the fall. Keep an eye out for upcoming shows in your area.

Endless Voids is delayed a bit

DNEV-1500pxHey!

Some tough news on the Endless Voids release: we hit a slight delay!

Reason for this delay is basically what you can call the vinyl apocalypse, which is induced by Dire Straits reissues and Record Store Day. Read more about it here.

We will extend the pre-order (and accompanying lower pricing) until June 6th. New release date is June 6th, so the wait is almost over!

Thanks for your patience,
Dead Neanderthals

Pitchfork article

We are featured on ‘The Out Door‘ column on Pitchfork right now. It’s a very cool and elaborate piece on the history of the band! Read the entire thing HERE.

Prime on CD

Prime-CD-mockupWow, those Prime LPs were gone in no-time from the Dead Neanderthals HQ. You might be lucky and find one of the very last copies through Colin Webster or Gaffer Records. Thanks for the massive support!

Because the record sold out quicker than anticipated, we’ve decided to do a second run of this beast on CD. The CDs are currently in production and should be ready early May. You can already pre-order your copy from Bandcamp, we will make sure we ship as soon as we receive our copies.
