Public Service Broadcasting have announced two shows in New York City at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s annual Space & Science Festival. The band will be performing at the museum on July 15 and 16.
The show will take place in the Museum’s Space Shuttle Pavilion, underneath the Space Shuttle Enterprise, the original NASA orbiter. Public Service Broadcasting will be the first band to stage a concert beneath the historic spacecraft. “We’re absolutely thrilled to be coming back to New York, and especially so to play underneath a space shuttle on board this historic aircraft carrier! It’s an absolute dream show for us and we can’t wait,” said the band’s J. Willgoose, Esq.
“We’re so excited for Public Service Broadcasting to bring their creative, unforgettable sound to the Space and Science Festival this year,” stated Ellen Silbermann, Director of Public Programming at the Intrepid Museum. “Whether performing fan favorite Spitfire, or songs from their album The Race for Space, I can’t imagine a more perfect setting than the Space Shuttle Pavilion on the flight deck of Intrepid. This is sure to be a show to remember.”
The Race For Space, Public Service Broadcasting’s second album, was unveiled in February 2015 at two special shows at the National Space Centre and went on to become one of the outstanding success stories of the UK independent record industry in 2015 – reaching #11 in the UK album charts in its first week and selling over 80k records worldwide since its release just over a year ago.
On June 17 PSB will be releasing The Race For Space / Remixes, twelve tracks – seven of which have yet to be heard – that tell the story of the USA and USSR’s battle for supremacy in space, this time remixed by and through the lens of PSB’s talented musical contemporaries. The album includes brand new mixes from Field Music, Boxed In, Vessels, Dutch Uncles, Robert Babicz, Maps and Copy Paste Soul plus Psychemagik, Blond:Ish, Petar Dundov and Kauf.
J. Willgoose Esq. points out, “Even back when I was still writing this album, I was imagining the kind of remixes we could get and the artists who we’d ask. I couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out; I think this is a really interesting and fresh (and in some cases mildly bonkers, a good thing in my book) reinterpretation of our songs and I’m looking forward to sharing it with our fans.”
