Detroit, MI – Multi-faceted music producer, artist and film composer Klayton (Celldweller, Circle of Dust, FreqGen) has announced pre-orders for Monochrome, the sophomore album from his retro 80s / synth-pop inspired project Scandroid, releasing Friday, October 27th. Monochrome is available for pre-order on CD, limited edition cassette or digital download at https://fanlink.to/monochrome.
Featuring 14 tracks, from the retro-synth pop hooks of “Afterglow,” “Rendezvous,” “Future Bloodline,” and “A Thousand Years,” to the instrumental epics “Oblivia” and “Searching for a Lost Horizon,” Monochrome imagines an alternate future where truth is hidden in “Monochrome.”
The album includes modern synthwave covers of John Williams’ famous Star Wars opus “The Force Theme” as well as a hauntingly powerful cover of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to be released on Friday the 13th of October. The album concludes with a bonus remix of “Thriller” from mysterious synthwave artist/producer PYLOT.
Following the international success of the debut Scandroid album (Top 10 iTunes Electronic Album USA, Russia, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Australia & #5 Billboard Electronic Album), Monochrome continues the journey of ‘Red’ & ‘Aphelion’ in a cyberpunk storyline set in Neo-Tokyo in the year 2518.
“…in a world of color, I see in Monochrome.”
Scandroid, the modern synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his electronic-rock project Celldweller, is Klayton’s love letter to the 80s.
The self-titled debut Scandroid album reached critical acclaim with #1 iTunes Electronic Album charing in USA/Russia, plus Top #5 Electronic Charting in iTunes (Canada, Germany, UK), Amazon (USA) and Billboard (USA). The debut Scandroid album has also garnered over 1.5 million plays on the NewRetroWave YouTube Channel and spawned a full album of official remixes, featuring artists such as: Dance With The Dead, Blue Stahli, Daniel Deluxe, PYLOT, d.notive, GosT, Makeup and Vanity Set, Waveshaper and more.
