We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing you today the exclusive premiere of DATAROCK’s brand new record, A Fool At Forty Is A Fool Indeed! (Make sure to pre-order the new release right here.) The new offering is the follow-up to 2018’s Face the Brutality, another chapter in the storied career of one of Norway’s finest electronic rock acts of the last two decades.
Founded by frontman Fredrik Saroea, this is a band that takes its music to the highest levels possible to achieve the most eclectic and groundbreaking of sounds. DATAROCK takes the term “collaboration” to unheard of lengths, with dozens of guests routinely appearing on their releases. If you require proof, 2015’s The Musical (the soundtrack to a musical from the group) featured 87 guests while 2009’s Red had nearly fifty members/contributors. DATAROCK first emerged on the scene in 2000 when four friends on a mountain in Bergen, Norway decided to form a band and although they have only released three official “albums,” they’ve put out tons of other more dynamic releases, including EPs, 7" singles and even USB releases!
A Fool At Forty Is A Fool Indeed was recorded at Bergen’s Duper Studios and was co-produced by Yngve Sætre. The EP contains four original tracks, with a fifth bonus track appearing on the record outside of Norway. It contains remixes by notable artists, including Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas, and Italian duo DJ Rocca and Jukka. There is one formerly unreleased track, “Vipera Berus” as well as two remixes from the Norwegian Grammy winning producer Stian Balducci.
