    For the first time in 7 years the Scottish Duo, are recording a brand new album!

    I'm absolutely stoked, and really hope it gets released this year!

    Who knows, we may even get a 21/12/2012 release which would be in line with BoC's sense of humour! ;)

    I haven't been excited about an album like this in a long time.

    There is also speculation that it may be a double album.

    Great news!

    Great news indeed!
    Black Dog posted recently on their Twitter page that they're going to make a remix for The Boards of Canada.
    There has been some many false rumors over the last couple of years about a new BOC album but I have to say things are looking good for a release this year.
    Maybe they will releas it in Boctober;)

    About bloody time! :D been waiting on this new album the past few years, it seemed like every year they were due to release something new. If it's anything as good as The Campfire Headphase I will be a very happy camper.

    Now we just need Aphex Twin to do the same...


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,701 ✭✭✭ Doge


    Hehe, was expecting a backlash of "ya right, aprils fools" responses!

    But yep, seems legit.

    They changed their myspace status to "in the studio" on the 22nd of December:

    They have tweeted a few links to their facebook, youtube page (which has some very nice playlists of their favourite fan made videos), and website:

    And best of all on their facebook page...

    ...this:

    Boards of Canada “are definitely working on new material”, “there is nothing in the cards at the moment in terms of a scheduled release.”

    It's a coming, we just have to hang on a little while longer :cool:
    When it does happen, I wonder if they will play a few shows.. maybe curate ATP.

    That sums it all up doesnt it. They've been "working on new material" for something like 4 years now. I wouldn't get your hopes up for 2012 to be honest.

    6 years actually!

    BOC are never 'not working', they're always in the studio. They've been in the studio solidly since 2006 working on the new records you'll be hearing soon. If we had put a notice up on the official site back in 2006 to the effect that "BOC are in the studio", you would no doubt be complaining now that the notice hadn't been changed in three years.

    I think the bold part of that post is interesting.

    The fact that they now have put up a status saying they're "in the studio" on myspace, and confirmed a new album is on the way on facebook it seems that something is on the way soon, I certainly do not think we will be waiting another 6 years.

    If i was to bet, I'd say we'd be seeing a release in the next 2 years at the most.

    But of course nothing is set in stone, and delays can always happen.

    I waited a over a decade for Duke Nukem Forever to be released, I can certainly wait for this!

    Thankfully though, in comparison to DNF, the chances of BOC writing off a legacy is slim to none. ;)

    Ah ye, Im not saying it'll be another 6 years. You're probably in around right with 2 years. MDG is the one that also runs that facebook page too, so its all coming from him.

    Just saying that a new BOC album isn't imminent.

    Music Has The Right To Children and The Campfire Headphase are double LPs.
    Geogaddi is a triple.

    Looking forward to this - they've been too quiet.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 266 ✭✭ Eileen Down


    There was talk in the past about box set with all the (officially) unreleased music, such as the Old Tunes cassettes, Random 35 and a whole bunch of stuff, been apart of the next album. I would love to see this come to fruition.
    If they also could chuck in the unknown, unreleased tracks they played live, I would be one happy chap. Or maybe I'm asking to much.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,328 ✭✭✭ karaokeman


    Technocentral should be looking forward to this:pac:

    Aphex Twin is releasing his 10 albums soon too.

    A new album or a compilation of old stuff would be great. I'm feeling a bit optimistic about this now. If My Bloody Valentine can get off their arses and finally release something this year I don't see why BOC can't.

    I wish!! :D

    Good news on the new album. Now, if Kraftwerk will ever release that album they say they're working on!! :mad:


  • Registered Users Posts: 136 ✭✭ Malpaisian


    Great news. Been loving The Boards since the start. There's been so much longing and anticipation of a new album, I hope it doesn't disappoint!

    In the meantime, those of you suffering from cravings for new BOC material may find Tipper and Ulrich Schnauss help a little. Not assuming anything. Just a heads up for those who may not have discovered these two great artists. :)

    BUMP!!
    A mysterious 12" vinyl was found last Saturday in a record store in NYC

    http://bocpages.org/wiki/Record_Store_Day_incident#.UXTas6LwmSo

    Could this be another elaborate hoax or the end of a seven year wait?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 266 ✭✭ Eileen Down






    Anybody else following these events? Have you checked your local record Store?

    Been following this on Twitter and stuff, it's pretty cool! Not the best time for me to be on Twitter with final year exams coming up, hope the other vinyls are found soon!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 266 ✭✭ Eileen Down


    The suspense is terrible... I hope it'll last.

    I saw Loop in McGonagles back in 1990. Supported by Therapy? Awesome gig.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 266 ✭✭ Eileen Down


    Something beautiful is about to happen


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 266 ✭✭ Eileen Down


    Tomorrow night...maybe.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,113 ✭✭✭ SilverScreen


    The suspense is killing me!! If they do release an album soon it had better be bloody amazing. Geogaddi-level amazing.

    I hate him too:pac:Does the Loop reunion deserve's it's own thread?

    As for BOC, it's going to end tonight, I can feel it. I would not be suprised if they play a secret gig tonight.
    No matter what way you look at this, it's full of win!

    New album of old tunes made brand new?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,113 ✭✭✭ SilverScreen


    Loop are curating the last ever ATP by the looks of it and reissuing their 3 albums. Imagine if they got Spacemen 3 to reform and play the same festival, how unbelievably mind-blowing would that be?

    Were any more of those mystery BoC records found since or was it only the one?
