NEW ALBUM IN THE WORKS

We are currently working on a new album with the first single hopefully coming by the end of the year! So far it sounds fucking awesome, and we hope you will agree.
The album will continue our exploration of cyberpunk themes together with hard-hitting beats and deep roaring basslines.
Stay tuned!

AUTOMATIC EP - Coming 05/06/2015

The AuTOMATIC EP is coming out on 05/06/2015 and features 3 new versions of the tracks "Automatic", "Gravity Eraser" and "Into The Unknown" from our previous album "Awake In The Dark".
We've also included the demo version of "Sektor 7" from 2011 to show our evolution in sound since then, a shorter instrumental version of the Technomancer RMX of "Automatic" as well as the original AK0 version of "Gravity Eraser" by Max|Static.

The cover has yet again been designed by the lovely Tatchit and we are very happy with it.

Check out the samples below and you can preorder it at our Bandcamp store.

Our new album AWAKE IN THE DARK is now out!

The album is our followup to the 2012 debut album RISE OF THE MACHINES and features 8 brand new tracks, that some of our older fans might recognize from some of our earlier demos from 2011, though they have been substantially reworked of course.
Expect more hardcore beats and deep basslines and a full on electro assault!

The album also features vocals by UK artist Ion Plasma Incineration as well as remixes by Technomancer, grapeFruitBat and Zone Tripper.

Hello again and happy new year! After a long period of this website not being updated we finally decided to take matters into our own hands and worked on rebuilding it from scratch, though still keeping somewhat the old design, although it has been improved upon quite a bit. The main reason for this is that we had very little control over the old site and therefore it became very out of date. We plan to keep this website updated with new information from now on and hope you will come back here often as a source of everything related to Lab5.

As you may have noticed, our debut album Rise Of The Machines was finally released in December 2012 on Sub Culture Records and you can get it from just about anywhere online, including
iTunes, Amazon, WiMP, 7Digital, Spotify and other places, as well as prelisten to it at Last.FM.

We're also hard at work on a new single as well as a new album, and a brand new version of our track Crisis Core will appear on the forthcoming Cultural Differences Vol. 1 compilation from Sub Culture Records.

Stay tuned!

Hi Max|Static here as some of you know last December we had our first official album/ep released on iTunes, Amazon, 7Digital and many other mp3 stores but for anyone who happens to checkout our site who doesn’t know that previews of the tracks can be found on last.fm and spotify that being said work has been started on our second official album/ep and if all goes to plan that should be out this December.

I also plan to have the website GUI updated so its more user friendly but that will happen when I have the money to be able to afford to get it done, for the most part it will look the same it will just mostly be layout changes in places and the links to Bandcamp changed to other links since we don’t use Bandcamp anymore for official/main releases only for promo stuff,
The Sub Culture Records Record Label releases our music for us now,
so until the sites discography is updated you can search for us on iTunes, Amazon, 7Digital and many other mp3 stores.

I plan on trying to update the site more often too and have a bunch of stuff to upload to it at some point.
