With Honeymoon On Mars The Pop Group open another chapter at a time when their iconoclastic contention is needed now more than ever. It's a record that finds the band unwaveringly incensed and resolute in their mutative sense of innovation, as frontman Mark Stewart elaborates: "It's a stand against manufactured hate, a hypersonic journey into a dystopian future full of alien encounters and sci-fi lullabies."
Recorded and mixed in various studios in early summer of 2016, working with Dennis 'Blackbeard' Bovell and Hank Shocklee the band realized a dream twofold collaboration, as Stewart concludes: "We've at last fulfilled a double fantasy to work with our two favourite sonic assassins, Dennis ‘Blackbeard' Bovell and Hank Shocklee. We're in awe as Dennis, the Captain Kirk of dub is taking us on a hyper sound voyage into the future, and Hank, as always tears up the rules totally upholding our faith in the absolute value of noise. We've gone completely off the map."
Talking about working with The Pop Group, Shocklee said: "The Pop Group sound has a level of freedom, fun and creative musicianship in their recordings that is a special and rare find in today's world. Their uncompromising spirit to be themselves and not worry about fitting into a musical box, sets them apart." Long-time collaborator Bovell adds: "It's been a great pleasure to be working with the guys again. They are truly beyond good and evil."
