"Schizophrenic modesty incarnate- is the description IAMX's Chris Corner gives to THE UNIFIED FIELD, the follow-up to the universally lauded album Volatile Times. For those who are familiar with the music of IAMX, this description fits like a velvet-lined black glove. At the same time primal, sensual, dangerous while also philosophical, intelligent and profound, Corner embodies a realm that connects head, heart and heavens while still being very conscious of innate rhythms and melody. The song, "The Unified Field- is a perfect example of that. Recently launching an overly successful PledgeMusic.com campaign for the production and promotion of the new album, IAMX has raised the bar for crowd-funding, garnering well over 600%% of its initial goal. The project's goal was initially reached astoundingly almost immediately at launch. Once fiercely self-produced and independent, Chris Corner has opened the door to collaborations and production assistance for the upcoming record with Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Temper Trap, Sneaker Pimps), co-producing the album with him. Founded in 2004, IAMX has released four albums that cross genres from electro to dance to experimental burlesque to stripped-down pulsating ballads without losing its very-human soul. The media has taken notice, calling IAMX's music "gorgeous... deliriously gloomy... and endearingly vulnerable" (Alternative Press), "hidden treasures for the ear that are so pristine, so lush and so near-perfect, that you want to share it with the world (9 out of 10)- (Blurt! Magazine), and "enthralling, highly theatrical mix of biting Brit Pop and electronica- (NYLON).
