Pendulum returns with latest 4-track DnB and Rock crossover EP ‘ANIMA’

Multi platinum-selling electronic rock band Pendulum have officially released their highly anticipated EP Anima, out now via Virgin Music Group and Mushroom Group.

The beloved band’s latest delivery is a harmonic blend of what fans know and love about Pendulum, with new, thoughtful collaborations across hard rock music that are exciting and push the groups sound forward to new horizons.

Anima consists of four tracks including Pendulum’s crossover hit single “Halo”, which features Bullet For My Valentine lead singer Matt Tuck, along with their anthemic Drum and Bass single “Colourfast”.

Acclaimed rising UK metal/underground hip hop artist Scarlxrd provides a blistering combination of rap and vicious screamo on “Mercy Killing” – backed by Pendulum’s unique brand of thunderous Drum n Bass to make it a thrilling ride from start to finish.

Sharing on the collaboration with Scarlxrd, frontman Rob Swire shares “It very quickly became clear that Scar [Scarlxrd] was one of our favorite people that we’ve ever had in the studio. He’s pure energy. Nothing was off-limits. Trap verse? Let’s do it. Slightly-more-pop-punk-than-usual chorus? Fuck it, let’s go.”

“Silent Spinner” is “one of the darker tracks we’ve done,” Rob describes. It caps off the EP brimming with a Spanish horn section and flows into a booming groove, slick vocal melodies, and metallic, futuristic synth sounds only Pendulum could finesse.

Preceding the release of the EP, the band surprised fans recently with their cover of Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” – which in true Pendulum fashion, offered some smashing metal guitar riffs, thumping drum and bass, and soaring vocals.

The EP arrives on the heels of the band’s recent arena tour of Australia and New Zealand. Starting in March of next year, the band will return to the UK for their biggest UK tour in over ten years with some of their most monumental shows to date. North American tour dates are on the docket to be announced in 2024.
