Factory Floor Reveal Details of Self-titled Debut Album

London trio Factory Floor have finally revealed details of their self-titled debut album, which is due out on September 9th through DFA Records.

In a recent interview with RA, band member Colk Void said that the album took nearly two years to put together, mostly because they decided to keep developing live in tandem with recording. 

"It took a while, well a long time, almost two years. The main reason for this is we decided to keep developing live in tandem with recording. Also committing time to our ICA residency. Collaborating with established artists fed more inspiration. Yes the tracks were specifically made for the album, we consciously wanted to make a record that offered an alternative side to our live shows. We chose to discipline the tracks and emulate our own staple sound."

'Factory Floor' was produced and recorded by the band in their North London warehouse space and mixed by LA-based producer Timothy 'Q' Wiles, who has previously worked with VCMG. 

The tracklist is as follows:

01. Turn It Up
02. Here Again
03. One
04. Fall Back
05. Two
06. How You Say
07. Two Different Ways
08. Three
09. Work Out
10. Breathe I
