Pendulum’s hectic summer schedule has already included a hugely diverse range of major festival appearances such as Radio 1′s Big Weekend, Sonisphere and major outdoor shows with The Prodigy and Tiesto. They will follow their imminent NME / Radio 1 Stage headlining sets at the Reading and Leeds festivals with the release of the new single ‘The Island’ on September 20th on Earstorm / Warner Bros. Records. In keeping with ‘The Island’ theme, Pendulum will embark upon a whistlestop Balearic Islands tour in September.

The single’s full nine-minute version will be released as an exclusive iTunes bundle, while a radio edit will also be available as well as a DJ edit of ‘Part II’.
