So 3 days to go before the tour starts and no sign of the promised new material. So far so normal in MA land. Anyone have any intel?

While we're at it - where's Mushroom's solo album. I heard a rumour that he'd actually recorded it 5/6 years ago. Would love to hear it....

In the latest Vinyl Factory newsletter there was a blurb in the end saying "Also coming soon: new editions from Massive Attack and Bryan Ferry but that's all we're saying for now."

So should be announced soon...

Found out some of the new song titles they are going to preview tomorrow:

Dead Editors
Ritual Spirit
Clock Forward
Voodoo in My Blood
He Needs Me
Take It There

Exciting times!

Listening to the La Fete short film again reveals that the track in the film is called He Needs Me.

Edit. According to this guy the new EP is out this Friday!!!

The name is apparently Ritual Spirit EP (quite credible then as the name is one of the tracks they have been rehearsing for the tour)

I'd advise everyone to go check out D's Instagram. He just posted artwork, and in the credits you can see the tracks feature Roots Manuva, Young Fathers, and Tricky! Hard to tell how many tracks in total given the typography but glad we have new stuff soon.
Also he's posted many new pics of the new stage setup, and Martina is with them again. She's posted several pics on her IG and FB as well.

It begins: head to the Apple app store and search for Fantom Sensory Music.

Wow! This is all VERY exciting. When I started this thread I really didn't think it was going to lead to anything. Timing couldn't have been better. Fingers crossed for tomorrow...

A Dutch music site called mega-media.nl started selling the EP by accident on Friday. That leak was patched early on Saturday but obviously someone who bought the EP from there when it was up has started widely distributing it. Looks like they started distributing it on the Russian social site VK late Sunday evening.

Richard, can you confirm this claim: https://twitter.com/hasitleaked/status/691387925544734720

Seems weird that they still wouldn't have enough material for an LP considering the shows have two more new tracks + the known collaborations with Run The Jewels and These New Puritans.

Yeah there might be a 2nd EP later this year that is apparently more G centric. I got the impression that LP6 is still a long time away from happening.

Really enjoying the new songs! Still haven't been able to get into Voodoo, although I love Young Fathers.

Nothing massively ground breaking of course, but I'm liking the direction - he's obviously listening to what's around at the moment. Particular Like the Future* style vocals on Voodoo In My Blood and the Tricky track is enjoyable.
