Well here's a sentence we didn't expect to be publishing on our site any time soon. It's an exciting time to be Pseudo Echo. Yes, those loveable Australian new wave, synth pop champions are back in the headlines for a number of reasons, let us talk you through them.

Firstly, 2012 marks the band's 30 year anniversary, which is one hell of a milestone for any band and considering the only time they've officially not been a band was 1990 through to 1998, they've slogged it out and completed a fair amount of work in that time. One thing they haven't done in a long time though is release a single, but that's all about to change as the band announced the release of their first single since Eye Of The Storm back in 1989.

The new single is called Suddenly Silently and it's available on iTunes right now, but if you head along to see the band on their forthcoming tour – another element of the exciting 30th anniversary celebrations – then you can score yourself a free download card if you're one of the first 150 people through the door.

This is a band who have sold over one million albums and charted very highly not just in Australia but the US, UK, Canada and Sweden as well. Their influence can still be felt today, so this opportunity to celebrate such a momentous milestone with the band should not be understated.
