Moderat, the Berlin based electronic supergroup formed by Apparat & Modeselektor, happily announce their highly anticipated 2nd studio album „II“ to be released on August 2nd worldwide via Monkeytown Records.
"Moderat are Gernot, Szary & Sascha.
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 hihats and tape machines while hanging out in the studio.
Moderat as a fusion of Modeselektor and Apparat is a mutual path that hasn't been and will never been 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.
After spending 6 quite intense months in the studio we just finished our 2nd album. It‘s simply called „Moderat II“ and we aged about 10 years while making it but we think it was worth the trouble.
Not seeing any sunshine or daylight for a long time, we can‘t wait to go on tour in august and play the new stuff live.
We are happy to share MODERAT "II" with you!
Gernot, Szary & Sascha"
