about

Thousand Yard Stare announce the release of a new single, Schism Algorithm, on 7th February 2020 via Stifled Aardvark Records. Recorded at Raffer studios with Callum Rafferty, the track is the second to be lifted from their forthcoming album The Panglossian Momentum, scheduled for release on 29th May 2020, their first studio long player since Mappamundi in 1993.

Where previous release It Sparks! called to relight internal fires, Schism Algorithm stares deep into the smouldering embers. Giles Duffy’s capricious guitar stabs ooze and soar through a bed of grumble-groove rhythm, as vocalist Stephen Barnes assumes the position of an intrusive algorithm, designed to influence our thinking.

Barnes explains “Our increased reliance on the digital sphere to shape our beliefs has invited opportunity for those with the power to harness it. The powers that be have always been master-peddlers of untruths. The infiltration of digital media in our lives allows those with the means and motives, to create de-facto truths from fabrication with increasing impunity and anonymity. This song is about putting this ‘ghost in the machine’ in the confession box”.

The band - originally active from 1989 until 1993 - reformed in 2015 for a triumphant and rapturous one-off show in London, reviving a passion that had lain dormant for over two decades. The band continued their sojourn, gaining plaudits and a growing new audience for their energetic and inclusive live performances, with further headline tours, appearances at Shiiine On Weekender, Indie Daze, PennFest and Gigantic, an annual London residency and tour supports with the likes of House Of Love.
