Remark Orbital: “We are so happy to be at number 6 in the charts. It’s our first time in the top ten this millennium!
Be seeing you!”
Optical Delusion contains the BBC6 Music playlisted lead single “Dirty Rat with Sleaford Mods, plus new single “Are You Alive?” Featuring Penelope Isles, which has just been added to the station’s playlist.
Orbital will take the album on tour in the Spring, with the Optical Delusion UK & Eire Tour kicking off on March 16th in Limerick and culminating in Brighton – where both the brothers are based – on April 8th, taking in London’s Eventim Apollo on April 1st (rescheduled from O2 Academy Brixton).
Optical Delusion is the latest in a burst of renewed post-pandemic creativity for two brothers whove stayed at the top of their game longer than anyone from the post-1988 Class of Acid House. Last year’s thirtieth anniversary package 30 Something – featuring reinterpretations of “Chime”, “Devil”, “Belfast” and extra by followers starting from Jon Hopkins to ANNA to David Holmes, plus studio variations of Orbital reside favourites – reintroduced Paul and Phil Hartnoll to a worldwide fanbase.
