ADULT. announce new album 'Becoming Undone' + share lead single

The duo return with a vibrant shockwave of tantalizing qualities.

Polaroids by ADULT.

From Drab Majesty to Spice and Choir Boy among others, Dais Records is home to one of the most eclectic stables on the planet. From their trailblazing catalog come Detroit's ADULT., who now announce the arrival of new album Becoming Undone as a culmination of their quarter century long existence. Arriving on February 25th, 2022, Becoming Undone finds the synth-punk outfit at the top of their craft. It's no easy feat for a group nine full-lengths in, especially with risks of becoming repetitive loom around the corner. However, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller dig deep and merge introspective lyricism with an array of electronic sound that unfolds with each subsequent listen. Lead single Fools (We Are...) whets the appetite for awaits come next February.

ADULT. comment on the record:

“Inspiration came from performances by Paul McCarthy's ‘Painter’ to Bruce Nauman's ‘Clown Torture.’ The sculptural work of Duchamp's ‘Fountain’ to Robert Gober's ‘Two urinals (in 2 parts),’ and the album artwork of Fad Gadget's ‘Incontinent.’ The toilet is a universal motif, a shared human situation or in some cases shituation. We are all fools in one way or another, from war to waste to societal trends in ridiculous human behavior.”
