Recent FACT mixers Rolo Tomassi are set to release their second album, Cosmology.

Produced by Mad Decent’s Diplo, it will be released on April 19 via Hassle Records, and comes mastered by Howie Weinburg, who worked on albums like Nevermind, Licensed to Ill and Grace.

Speaking to FACT earlier this year, the band’s James Spence told us that “the whole process was easier than [h debut album] Hysterics. I feel as though it continues on from the blueprint we laid down with Hysterics and that with this album we’ve come closer to making the band sound how we want it to sound. The songs have more structure and direction and the whole sound of the band is a lot stronger.”

“[Working with Diplo] was a great experience. The people he got involved to come and help with the recording were fantastic to work with and Diplo was a lot of fun to be around. It was a very laid back experience once we got over the initial headfuck of being the other side of the world recording an album.”

“I don’t really think his involvement changed our sound if I’m honest. I’d say when it came to vocals he had input and was a good coach for Eva, especially when it came down to the cleanly sung vocals. His influence with it was mainly making us comfortable and helping us to make the best album we could at that point in time.”
