Fans of Sheffield’s noise merchants 65daysofstatic have just a fortnight to wait for what will undoubtedly be a raucous homecoming.

The instrumental four-piece, from the Steel City, will be showcasing their huge-sounding recent release ‘No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe.’

A 16th November date at Plug in Sheffield is a first chance for some of the band’s longest serving fans to get a taste of the album in a live setting.

The album is a soundtrack to the highly anticipated 2016 release No Man’s Sky.

65dos put together a ‘self-generating’ soundtrack that will provide a unique audio experience for those playing the game, which boasts a procedurally generated universe.

Essentially, your experience of the game will sound different to everyone else’s, but crucially it will sound like 65daysofstatic.

Formed in 2001, 65dos are a difficult band to describe, many favouring the term ‘post rock’ because there isn’t really a genre to which the Sheffielders belong.

But their music often involves quiet, delicate moments before huge soaring crescendos, often overwhelming – especially played live.

The Plug gig is part of a world tour.

In the UK, 65dos will play in London, Bristol, Sheffield, Newcastle and Glasgow.

65dos have also announced the long-awaited re-issue of their critically acclaimed 2005 album ‘One Time For All Time’ on vinyl for the first time.

Described by Drowned in Sound as ‘the most vital, enthralling and unrelenting record of 2005’ ‘One Time For All Time’, will be released on 18th November as a pressing of 1,000 deluxe LPs on 180g vinyl - 500 copies on black vinyl and 500 on cream vinyl with sepia splatter.

All LPs will include a large format 12-page colour booklet containing the images and titles of all 1,000 individual Polaroid photos taken by the band and used to create unique sleeves for the sold-out limited edition ‘Radio Protector 7” single” in 2006, plus a copy of the album CD and a colour-printed inner sleeve.
