The British group, 65daysofstatic, is embarking on a new tour to mark its 15th anniversary, which will take it to 27 concerts in a dozen countries. In its latest album, it has worked with the video game studio, Hello Games, to set the video game, No Man’s Sky, to music, which will also be the title of the band’s 2016 tour.
From Sheffield, England, 65daysofstatic started out in 2001 as a trio with Joe Shrewsbury, Paul Wolinski and Iain Armstrong. Two years later, Armstrong left the group and Feedle joined them for a short while. After undergoing several changes in their ranks, Shrewsbury and Wolinski remain in the group and are accompanied by Rob Jones and Simon Wright, finally forming a quartet.
As a math rock and post-rock group, it has quite a wide sound spectrum. The songs are mainly instrumental with irregular beats and sounds from progressive rock and heavy metal. They incorporate elements of electronic music sharing similarities with post-rock bands, such as Explosions In The Sky, Mogwai and Radiohead.
