British Art Rock band, Django Django are celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their acclaimed debut album with a reissue of the 2012 eponymous record. Despite the band’s expectations to sell just a few hundred copies and for the album to remain underground, ‘Django Django’ went on to receive a Mercury Prize nomination and was a widespread hit with the critics upon release.
It included popular hits, ‘Hail Bop’, ‘Default’, ‘Life’s a Beach’ and more, with fans now invited to revel in nostalgia with a revised version of the record included as part of a deluxe special edition package.
Speaking of the upcoming re-release, singer and guitarist Vincent Neff commented: “Our debut album is 10 years old! It was the album that set us on our way and it’ll always be a special one to us. It reminds us of recording in Dave’s bedroom, playing at small club nights up and down the UK and taking in all the new music that was being made in East London at that time. When we released it, we had no idea what would happen, but it ended up being the start of a crazy journey for us.
“To celebrate the release we’ve created a special 10th Anniversary Edition, and also asked the amazing Mad Professor to do a dub rework — ‘Django Django meets Mad Professor’ — which interprets the album in a way that only he could.”
The eagerly anticipated digital and physical re-release of ‘Django Django’ is out May 27th!
