When Hadouken! emerged last year with ‘That Boy That Girl’ their in-your-face indie-grime collision of sonic extremities just didn’t make sense for some people. A step too far perhaps? Ridiculously east London? The soundtrack to Nathan Barleys life? In fact the urgent and inherently new nature of their sound captured thousands of dedicated young fans - including a massive 70,000 myspace devotees and counting. Their forward thinking electronic-grimey pop energy and the explosively frenetic live shows captured the yoot’s imaginations. Within months they were selling out thousand capacity venues. By the release of the limited 7 of ‘That Boy That Girl’ in February this year even the nay-sayers of six months previous were starting to realise this was a slice of fresh talent bursting with brilliant ideas, killer hooks and a vast potential.Always one step ahead of the pack, H! know that their ever growing fanbase are the web savvy teenagers of the UK, and as a knowing nod to this new generation they’re now the first band ever to make their next release available on a USB stick ONLY. The Mixtape will feature 6 exclusive new tracks plus some remixes of Hadouken! tracks, including an exclusive Bloc Party offering. Prior to the release on November 5th, one new track will be available to download from the band’s website (www.hadouken.co.uk) as a taster of what to expect on the mixtape.

New track ‘Leap Of Faith’ is the nearest Hadouken! have as yet come to balls-out rock & roll, the menacing hoody adolescent offspring of Nine Inch Nails and Muse - a day-glo beacon pointing towards their eagerly awaited album next spring.

Hadouken embark on a 27 date UK tour from Thursday 27th September (details below) culminating in a sold out Astoria show on Wednesday 10th October.
