Contact Details

Adam Veenendaal
Two years after their second album, Politeia, The Ludvico Treatment return with Uncollected. The new release is as rooted in the band's love of feedback-drenched noise as it is influenced by the pop sensibilities of their reviled-by-die-hard-fans, enjoyed-by-most-others full-album version of Bowie's Earthling.

The new songs represent the end of a chapter in the band's ten year history and the start of a whole new one, and a strong sense of transition permeates the record. 'Roads' yearns for return and safety, 'Panacea' frantically demands change; with 'Listing' The Ludvico Treatment's sound itself moves into new territory.

Uncollected is the sound of a band moving on, exploring the edges of what they know and preparing to go further in the future. Maybe Bowie's listening this time, maybe he doesn't care, but he more than most understands this point in a band's story: putting the past to rest with respect and moving, with as much squealing feedback as possible, into the future.
