Architecture in Helsinki announce new album and tour dates

Music by Jim Napier

Architecture in Helsinki has planned their triumphant return after being absent for over three years on May 3 when they release their new LP Moment Bends. The album is set for release on Cooperative/Downtown/Modular in the U.S. It arrives April 11 via V2/Cooperative in the UK and April 8 via Modular in Australia. 

The album was recorded over two years in their own Melbourne studio Buckingham Palace. You can download the dance-pop track "Contact High" here. The Moment Bends cover art up is shown above.

Frontman, Cameron Bird had the following to say in a press release:

"Moment Bends was all about being at one with our ideas, obsessed with popular music and falling in love with our hometown. We wanted to build a record to get lost in, a record that always feels exactly what you are feeling." 

Here is the band's video for "That Beep".

The band is set to embark on a massive tour that'll take them across Australia, Europe, and North America. In North America, they'll tour with New York synthpoppers Hooray for Earth. Below are the band's tour dates.
