on May 21, 2010, 10:25am

Back when we interviewed Orbital‘s Phil Hartnoll in March, he mentioned that the legendary UK electro duo has begun crafting some new material. Turns out he wasn’t kidding.

On June 20th, Orbital will unveil its first new material since 2004 with the release of a brand new double single. Consisting of tracks titled “Don’t Stop Me” and “The Gun is Good”, the effort is said to “represent the signature Orbital sound, with hints of new elements, and definitely a few surprises, signifying a band still at [its] creative peak.”

The record will be available through iTunes starting June 20th. It will then be made available to all other digital retailers, as well as released as a limited edition 12″ on June 27th.

As previously reported, Orbital will spend the majority of its summer headlining a number of music festivals, including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight. Find a full list of dates below.
