Hadouken! will release the first single from their much anticipated forthcoming album on January 18th 2010, the track Turn The Lights Out indicates a harder direction for the band and is the perfect taster for the new album, which is also scheduled for release in January.
Recorded alongside the album tracks with producers of the moment Noisia at their Groningen studios, the track melds a dark string section worthy of the Wu Tang at their finest to a low slung pure evil bassline and is a call to arms for clubbers, partyers and giggers the length and breadth of the UK.
Hadouken!’s return has already begun with their M.A.D track picking up huge coverage across Youtube, the official video featuring a rampaging Mouse on the town shooting straight to the top of the viewed charts on site and registering near on half a million views to date.
With uber vlogger Shane Dawson taking the track for his Halloween special and adding millions more to that total, Hadouken’s return to prominence, and their position at the forefront of using the web to engage with their fans, continues apace.
