Pendulum speak out about "difficult second album"
Story by Jack Foley
PENDULUM have spoken out on the difficulties of making their second album, In Silico, as the album hit the record shops this week and looked set to hit number one.
The Australian act confessed to finding it harder than they’d thought when it came to their sophomore effort but eventually rallied to overcome the hardship to release the drum ‘n’ bass monster on May 12, 2008, through Warner Bros/Ear Storm Records.
The band, who have also sold out their entire UK tour for the second time in a row, said: “We went into this album with the attitude that it would be easy, determined to avoid the cliché of a second album being difficult, but it was five times harder than we ever imagined it would be.
“We underestimated the amount of work that had to go into it to make it turn out the way we wanted it to, but I think we’ve achieved that, and we hope you all enjoy it. THIS IS A NEW WAY!”
The live setting is where the new record has come alive in a very big way and recently the group wowed thousands at the Radio 1 Big Weekend. Even Zane Lowe was quoted as saying that Pendulum was his “moment of the weekend”.
