Industrial agitators Test Dept are currently preparing new live work incorporating noise, rhythm, voice, electronics, bass, custom instrumentation and visuals, for their shows in autumn 2022. These will be their first live performances since the pandemic began. The new material will also inform the development of a new album to be released next year. The group had previously been touring the Disturbance live show in Europe and the USA until all live performances were stopped in 2020. They now look to present an updated show with new perspectives in a very different world.
Over recent years, the group had re-emerged to engage in the cultural and political climate, utilising their extensive archive and exploring new ways of expression in a strategic programme of actions including performance, installation and the publication of their book Total State Machine. Their last album, Disturbance came with much critical acclaim and their new work will continue this process of exploration, discovery and invention. Prior to the new album, TD are looking to re-release a series of remastered albums from their back catalogue.
