With the release of Magnetica scheduled for May 5 via Tru Thoughts, Will ‘Quantic’ Holland celebrates the new album with a full live band performance at London’s KOKO on May 29.

Magnetica will be the first Quantic album under his main solo moniker since 2006’s An Announcement to Answer, following a string of collaborative projects with Alice Russell, Ondatrópica and the Combo Bárbaro.

Lead single ‘Duvidó’ featuring the vocals of Pongolove is a promising indication of things to come, with a noticeable return to the energetic, bass-heavy sounds that characterised Holland’s earlier works.
