"lo! Lavendar River Karez" and "I’m On The Team" follow on from Matmos' lead single "No Concept" that featured Clipping and David Grubbs, and arrived at the beginning of July.

Matmos' forthcoming LP is extra long, with a total running time of around three hours. The Consuming Flame: Open Exercises In Group Form sees Matmos collaborate with 99 musicians, including Oneohtrix Point Never, Marisa Anderson, Mouse On Mars, Matthew Herbert and more. There was only one strict rule for the collaborators, they could create whatever they wanted, as long as it sticks to 99 beats per minute.

The Consuming Flame: Open Exercises In Group Form will follow on from Matmos' 2019 album Plastic Anniversary.

"Io! Lavendar River Karez" and "I'm On The Team" are both out now. Matmos' The Consuming Flame: Open Exercises In Group Form album will be released 21 August via Thrill Jockey, and is available to pre-order now.
