For *DEAD SON RISING*–a far more experimental and unique album than such previous releases as–*Jagged*, *Pure* and *Exile*–*GARY *teamed up with longtime collaborator *ADE FENTON* to co-write and produce the effort. *DEAD SON RISING* is garnering early critical acclaim overseas and in the U.S.:*

MOJO* (November 2011) “Its diversity is its strength. *‘Big Noise Transmission’* does what it says on the tin, but just as potent is ‘When The Sky Bleeds’ with skeletal electronic rhythms swelling into a chorus where Numan sounds surprisingly soulful. Brilliant!’”*

ARTROCKER* “The untouchable mafia dons of the 20th Century are discussing him in deity-like terms (Prince: ‘There are still people trying to work out what a genius Gary Numan is.’). All of that certainly rings true when you’re dealing with an artist who sounds this good 30 years into their career. *Gary Numan has delivered one of the great conceptual dystopian rock albums of all time* . . . “(November 2011)*

CLASSIC ROCK* “‘Synth-pop pioneer’s guitar crunch album is a cracker. The tracks ‘Dead Sun Rising’ and ‘Not The Love We Dream Of’ are as good as anything he’s ever done. *Dead Son Rising** is now and it’s excellent*.’” (December 2011)*

RECORD COLLECTOR* “*Experimental and classic Numan*. Rather than resting on his laurels, Numan is out there fashioning new ones.” (November 2011)*

UNCUT* “*Cold digital riffing and tuneful sci-fi sermons*. 2011 looks like one of those years when Gary Numan finds himself in fashion.” (November 2011)*

FMV MAGAZINE.Com* “…packed *full of sinister grooves*, *dark disco* and *enigmatic goth-rock,* with space left over for a bit of expansive soul-searching too.” (December 2011)

*NUMAN* continues to put the finishing touches on his new album for 2012 titled *SPLINTER*. This summer, he collaborated with *Battles *for their new single *“My Machines,”* out now on *Warp Records*, see video below which also features *GARY*. No doubt the renewed vigor came partly from his *critically acclaimed* tour last fall celebrating the *30th anniversary* of his *seminal album The Pleasure Principle*. *GARY* and his band thrilled *sold-out crowds* across the U.S. late last year. Expect the group to announce a worldwide tour soon.****
