M83: New Album details

A date's been confirmed for the new album by M83, with their new collection Junk expected to be released on April 6.

It's the band's first full album since 2011's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, the album that contained their international hit Midnight City and established the band's leader Anthony Gonzalez reputation as the world's foremost purveyor of cosmic widescreen indie.

It was a landmark French music release in recent years, a collection that showed that French music didn't have to be dance orientated to be significant both commercially and critically.

The music on the album went on to be used extensively in adverts, on TV and in cinema.

M83 have since that album released the soundtrack of the Tom Cruise film Oblivion in 2013.  Other tracks by the band have featured in high profile movies including the Divergent movies as well as The Fault in our Stars.

Collaborations with Haim and Jean-Michel Jarre were released last year, and the earlier albums recorded by the band before they made Hurry Up, We're Dreaming have been re-issued.

M83 have live dates across the USA and a show in Canada next month,  some dates in Asia in May, more North American dates follow this.

They play the Solidays in Paris at the end of June, garorock festival and the Eurockéennes festival on July 1.
