On 26th January 2024 EMF proudly release brand new album ‘The Beauty and The Chaos’, on EMF

‘The Beauty and The Chaos’, finds the band at their full creative tilt delivering Classic EMF! And sees
the band re-united with Ralph Jezzard, who produced their worldwide hit Unbelievable and their first
2 albums (Schubert Dip and Stigma).

“We produced another set of classic songs about our lives and the world in 2023 inspired by our
favourite sounds from the past, present and future.

We mixed together James Atkin’s techno synths, Ian Dench’s punk guitar, heated it to 200 degrees
with Stevey Marsh and Aid Todd’s groovy rock rhythms, iced it with Derry Brownson’s maniacal
sampling and popped it in a box of Ralph Jezzard’s sonic excellence. Unwrap and enjoy!” – EMF
Describing ‘The Beauty and The Chaos’ as “Auditory Glory and Stories” the album’s themes are
“perhaps bigger and more political than previous releases. About / Covering immigration, protest,
climate change and our place in the universe. We explore changing attitudes, addiction and soured
friendships but also include classic EMF songs about our love of partying and the dance floor.”

This energetic and diverse album features 10 finely crafted songs, with the opening track and first
single Hello People setting the tone, with its indie grove and it’s call to stand with tolerance against
the hate-myths of immigration. A further 9 songs take the listener on a musical rollercoaster
embracing Techno punk (Reach For The Lasers), Nasty Northern Soul (Read The Room), Swampy
Electronica (I’ve Been Down), Prog Punk (Stardust) and Trip Trop gospel (Lookout Mountain), before
the psychedelic Do It Again, a song about trying to grow up but failing, closes this sumptuous debut
album in the best possible way.

The CD album features two bonus tracks; a remix of the first single Hello People featuring the great
Stephen Fry and a remake of The Monkees cover ‘I’m A Believer’.
To celebrate the release of ‘The Beauty and The Chaos’ album, EMF take to the road for a headline
tour promising “songs, energy, lasers, community, excitement, and a feeling like we will all live
forever.” Starting at Thekla in Bristol on January 19th the tour concludes on Saturday 17th February
in Wolverhampton at KK’s steel Mill.
