Advance, the Glasgow based dystopian electronica project of Tom Perrett and Kimberly Copland exploded onto the electronic music scene in 2014 with the release of their debut album Deus Ex Machina.
Drawing the absolute best from such influences as Depeche Mode, Assemblage 23 and Ludovico Einaudi to name but a few, Advance have continued to win new fans across the world with their infectious sound, prescient social commentary and inimitable live performances across the UK including the infamous Slimelight club in London and the legendary Resistanz Festival in Sheffield.
Anthemic in every sense of the word and arguably their most accomplished output to date, A Sign of Things to Come showcases four brand new tracks including larger-than-life futurepop monsters ‘Calm Before the Storm’, ‘The One’ and ‘Trying to Live’, plus the emotive, piano-driven ballad ‘Grey Dawn’.
A Sign of Things to Come has been mixed by CYFERDYNE’s production mastermind Andy McBain and mastered by the iconic Jan Loamfield of X-M-P MUSIC PRODUCTION. The digital version of the EP includes bonus remixes from crossover-industrial titans Biomechanimal and Advance’s label-mates, synthpop-heroes Nature of Wires.
A Sign of Things to Come is officially released on the 10th of June 2016 and is available from all good digital outlets and in a strictly limited, 12” heavyweight vinyl edition. A new full length album is due in 2017.

Without a doubt one of the strongest EBM/Electro/Synthpop releases of 2015! Every song a brilliant shimmering gem and qualified as a "favorite track". A refreshing range of styles, emotions, and songwriting genius. This is not ordinary by any means but rather extraordinary and shows exceptional promise from the Swedish masterminds on their sophomore release (as did their debut). Highly Recommended. This has quickly become a release I could not live without. 10/10! Johnny Brito
