Hot on the tail of their latest emission – three-track single ‘North Star’— IAMX have aligned themselves with a veritable constellation of UK dates.
“It’s about becoming unhinged… being sucked into a black hole of madness and psychological pain and clawing a way out,” explains Chris Corner of internationally revered band IAMX about his latest single and video “North Star”, which was taken from their sixth studio album ‘Metanoia’ (released last October 2015). “Nature can relieve the burden of obsessive everyday stress, it can diffuse the never ending ‘story of me ‘ and guide you back to a calmer mental state. ‘North Star’ symbolises this guide.”
Having made his initial mark as co-founder and charter member of seminal British trip-hop progenitors Sneaker Pimps, Chris Corner has forged a powerful and enduring creative identity as IAMX.
With a new single in hand and a new lease on his life as IAMX, Corner is ready to tackle the next chapter. “I’m in a much better place with my mind,” he concludes. “I feel reborn in some ways with a wiser calmer more realistic perspective on myself and my place in the world. I worked fucking hard, erased toxic people from my life, threw myself back into my art and I can say I am the happiest I’ve been for a long time.”
