Launched in 2010, Advance, the Glasgow based dystopian electronica project of Tom Perrett and Kimberly Copland made an impressive live debut in 2012 supporting futurepop legends Assemblage 23 and Analog Angel at the prestigious Classic Grand in Glasgow. Following a number of high-profile support slots with established acts such as Modulate, Surgyn, Icon of Coil and Shiv-R, Advance had become a recognised and highly regarded name in the Scottish electronic music scene and beyond.
In 2014, the band exploded onto the worldwide electronic music stage with the release of their debut album Deus Ex Machina. Drawing the absolute best from such influences as Depeche Mode, Assemblage 23 and Ludovico Einaudi to name but a few, Advance have continued to win new fans across the world with their infectious sound, prescient social commentary and inimitable live performances across the UK including the infamous Slimelight club in London and the legendary Resistanz Festival in Sheffield.
Now in 2016, with three releases under their belts and a number of UK shows planned, the future looks bright for Advance. Catch them live on a stage near you soon.
