In July, Akkord will return to Houndstooth with their first original music since October 2015.

The two-track 12”, titled RCVR / XTMR, features all the Akkord hallmarks, namely brutal, grit-filled percussion, steely synths, and visceral sound design, a welcome return from the Manchester duo.

Alongside the release, the duo have also announced a string of dates, including their first London date in 19 months at The Pickle Factory, June 29, alongside Houndstooth artist Guy Andrews, as well as the Mary Anne Hobbs-curated Manchester International Festival on July 8 alongside Clark.

RCVR / XTMR will drop on 140gm vinyl on July 7 and can be pre-ordered here.
