According to, The Avalanches are putting the finishing touches on their long awaited follow-up to 2001's Since I Left You, an album that contained approximately 3500 samples, most impressive of which was the first ever legally licensed Madonna sample. Largely the reason Modular Records is on the map today, The Avalanches made one of the best dance albums of this decade and the anticipation for the sophomore LP is of magnum proportions.

The Melbourne, Australia-based electronic collective released a statement in early 2007 about the new album - "It's so fuckin' party you will die, much more hip-hop than you might expect, and while there is still no accurate estimated time of arrival, we're sure you're gonna love it when it arrives ... It's ended up sounding like the next logical step to "Since", we just had to go around in a big circle to get back to where we belong. And one day when you least expect it you'll wake up and the sample fairy will have left it under your pillow."

The unconfirmed, tentative title of the new disc is Inactivity, and it may hit shelves in early 2009. Cross your fingers!
