iamx vt"It is, at its root, an angst ridden 'fuck you' song," explains IAMX's mastermind Chris Corner, about his new single EP "VOLATILE TIMES'', which will be released on September 23, 2011 via BMG Rights Management and distributed by Rough Trade. "The commercialisation of the world, of objects of people and now data is mind numbing to watch. I pity this generation of intelligent, social, tech-savvy zombies... growing up with a wall of possibility and hopeless anxiety in front of them." Always bucking the system that is the "Music Industry" and railing against the stagnancy and commercialization of art, IAMX has taken their dark, midnight electro rock offline label-wise and forged his own path, creatively and business-wise, growing away from the dead-eyed mainstream world and blossoming in a whole new direction. The frustrated and vitriolic single will be released physically as a limited run of only 500 copies, all numbered, and only available through Boutique IAMX (http://boutiqueiamx.eu). Copies that are purchased via the pre-sale that begins on 3 September 2011 will be autographed by Chris Corner.

The third single from his fourth studio album of the same name, the "Volatile Times" EP contains remixes by Canadian multi-instrumentalist Clayton Worbeck, Berlin duo Noblesse Oblige, British artist Glen [Strangers] Nicholls, and by Chris Corner himself as UNFALL. The remixes were done by "friends of friends, independent unique like-minded artists and people I respect," he explains. "Some came to me and some had been asked. The main goal here is to create a product with depth and energy. Something with bite and something that compliments the meandering journey of IAMX. I am a fan of them all."

From the disjointed breakbeat of Clayton Worbeck's treatment, to the dramatic retelling by Noblesse Oblige, to the paranoid spaciousness of Glen [Strangers] Nicholls' cinematic interpretation, to the mechanized industrial clash of the UNFALL version, the EP embraces the daring complexity of IAMX and exposes just how differently other visionaries can deconstruct and interpret his music without losing its soul and intent. Never one to mince words in his music or in real life, his song's fed-up and frustrated lyrics echo his feelings about the current state of pop music. "I can't even listen to commercial lyrics now. I want no part of that pop farce," he says. "So much can be said in a song. What happened to the poetry in music? What happened to passionate abstract thought? What happened to risk? What happened to giving a shit and saying it well? Our vocabulary is melting just like the ice caps."
