English formation 65daysofstatic plays a form of instrumental post-rock in which electronic music styles such as drum and bass, techno and glitch are incorporated. The guitar-led melodies and live drums are combined with sampled beats reminiscent of Mogwai and Squarepusher.
The group gained a loyal following through their tours and well-received albums, such as their 2004 debut 'The Fall of Math'. In the following years, they released more dance-oriented albums, such as 2010's 'We Were Exploding Anyway' (featuring Robert Smith of The Cure, among others) and soundtracks, such as that of the video game 'No Man's Sky'.
2023 marks the tenth anniversary of their best-received album - and in their own words, the most challenging record they've ever written: 'Wild Light'. The band celebrates the anniversary with a Wild Light 10th Anniversary Tour and will visit Tolhuistuin on 23 September.
