Sunday evening, electronic music supergroup Pendulum took to Ultra Music Festival’s main stage to close out the event in unprecedented style and power. During their performance, even Deadmau5 made an appearance atop the decks for a live rendition of “Ghosts N’ Stuff”. Now, after the dust has finally settled over Miami’s festival weekend, a curious development has arisen on Pendulum’s official website.
When visiting Pendulum.com, fans now see an entirely new layout in addition to a mysterious message. The site is draped in a grainy, black-and-white backdrop that defaults to a repeating video of swirling shapes that glitch and overlap over one another. The phrase, “Pendulum Returns in 2016, After Four Years of Silence” repeats in the center, with “2016” tabbed on the left-hand side.
By scrolling down the reverse chronological list, four previous years of Pendulum highlights can be listened to. For 2005, a link is provided to the Spotify playlist of their debut album Hold Your Colour. In 2008, fans are directed one for In Silico. For 2009, a full stream of the group’s live set at Brixton Academy is given. Finally, 2010 displays their most recent album, Immersion, for listening.
Following the pattern, it would seem that the reason for the site’s redesign stems from the potential release of another studio album. Unless their team has established some sort of elaborate scheme, we believe that avid fans can rest assured that something big is on the horizon.
