What the fuck? Are they still going to do their "DJ" sets or no?

Edit: Answers my question:

Quote:
It looks as though the name Pendulum will still continue to operate, with members Paul "El Hornet" Harding and Ben "The Verse" Mount continuing to book DJ sets under the band's name.

I'm glad to be honest, enjoy the debut and liked seeing them live when they were less of a "band", but ever since after the debut, all of their stuff sounded the same. Intro with moody vocals over echoey sounds, drums come in to build up pace, rapid fire drums, drop, more vocals, repeat. Such a similar structure for so much of their music past Hold Your Colour it got very tedious and boring live too.

Hold Your Colour was great, everything after that was just dull and boring. Knife Party is great though.

Dammittttt. Saw them at Roskilde Festival back in 2010, and they were one of the most entertaining live-acts I've ever seen. Loved Immersion and Hold Your Colour as well.

I submitted this... but anyways, Rob and Gareth are focusing more on Knife Party now, claiming that it's "more fun." I can assume that, since they're performing with CDJs instead of playing actual instruments.

The Rage Valley EP just came out a couple weeks ago, plus they're always working on new stuff.

Wow, it kinda surprises me. I've enjoyed a bunch of songs made by them, even though I'm not strictly a fan of this type of music.
