Watch: Fuck Buttons’ “Olympians”

on March 30, 2010, 3:15pm

As reported earlier this month, Bristol, England’s Fuck Bottons are set to spend the spring touring through Europe, Cananda, and the US.  The duo will also release the single “Olympians”, which first appeared as a 10-minute track on 2009’s Tarot Sport. This time around, the single will include remixes by Spiritualized’s J. Spaceman and Suicide’s Alan Vega. And not only is the cover totally trippy, but also contains a hidden 3D image. But like your mother told you, don’t put your face too close to the screen!

ATP recordings is currently accepting pre-orders for the album here. While the tracks will be available for digital download on April 12th, it will be much cooler to own one of the limited 12″ vinyls that will be pressed on five different colored vinyls — one for each Olympic ring.

The Fuck Buttons have also released a new video for “Olympians”, which you can view below. Possibly one of the most low-budget videos ever produced, Andrew Hung scores a street-lined karate demonstration with “Olympians”. The duo has also added stops to their current tour, playing an additional show in New York, and making appearances at two more European festivals. Updated tour dates follow, with the new performances in bold.

“Olympians” Tracklist:
01. Olympians
02. Olympians (Spaceman vs The Olympians) – Remix by J. Spaceman
03. Rough Steez (White Hot Heat Remix) – Remix by Alan Vega
