Synthpop act Iris return with new album 'Blacklight' in September
American electronic pop/rock act Iris are back. The band's fifth studio album "Blacklight" is scheduled to be released on September 3, 2010. You may also expect an exclusive limited single to be released as appetizer for the actual album. The new album is the follow-up to "Hydra" which was released in 2008. Formed by Reagan Jones and Mat Morris in 1993 the band hit the synthpop scene by surprise with their outstanding debut "Disconnect". After that first album Matthew Morris was replaced with Andrew Sega who pushed the band's sound into a more experimental electronic direction.
