Ladytron’s next album aiming for May release
Ladytron will release its fourth album next May on Nettwerk records, Billboard reports. The band have been in limbo since releasing 2005’s Witching Hour on Rykodisc. “We wanted to work with people who really understood where we were. The best thing about the Nettwerk deal is that the band and the management will have the ability to be really hands-on with the marketing and planning. This time around, nothing will be left to chance,” Daniel Hunt told Billboard.
Ladytron began on Emperor Norton that was scooped up by Rykodisc and was soon scrapped the label. As a result, Hunt elaborates that Ryko wasn’t really there for the band as they would have liked. “The only reason our last record did so well was because we worked really hard and toured on it for two years. The label really did nothing.”
