Robots in Disguise: Happiness Vs. Sadness

Feisty fembots Robots in Disguise have announced their 4th studio album ‘Happiness V Sadness’ – released 11th July on President Records.

Robots in Disguise are Dee Plume (guitar and vox) and Sue Denim (bass and vox) backed live by Ann Droid (drums and vox). Part riot grrl princesses, part monsters of DIY musical mayhem, this maverick electro-indie-rock-dance duo have made their fourth poptastic album with a little help from their fans, whose ‘pledges’ paid for its production.

Happiness V Sadness showcases RiD’s continued growth as serious songwriters and their unrivalled ability to weave strong concepts into mouth-watering melodic hooks and irresistible dancey rhythms.

After touring their last album in the UK, Europe and Japan and supporting Gary Numan, Cyndi Lauper and The Gossip, RiD set up writing in their newly acquired studio space at The Brainyard – a haven of creative talent in the heart of Kings Cross, London.
Bridging the gap between the third and long-awaited fourth album was the stomping psychedelic pop-punk single, Wake-Up! which reached number 20 in the Independent Singles Breakers Chart. With the skill of friend and super producer David Alexander (Yo Majesty/Dominique), Wake Up! saw triumph and attracted ecstatic audiences nationwide during its promotional tour of Spring 2010.

With the budding success of this new music-making alliance, RiD once again called upon Mr Alexander’s talents for the fourth album, along with producer, Tim Holmes (Death In Vegas). Together they have created ten superbly written tracks, sure to once again set pulses racing in discotheques all over Europe. The girls recently played a sold out show at CCP in Malaga, despite never having had a release in Spain. The word is once again spreading about RiD’s astounding tunes and a vicarious stage show.

They go back out on the road this summer in the UK, to celebrate the release of their new album and to thank their fans personally for making it all possible.
