Video of New Single ‘Stereotype’ featuring Factory Floor OUT OCT 1st

The video featuring Mark and Nik Void of Factory Floor, is a stunning visual piece that captures the intensity of their duet perfectly and was directed by Danish film, music and documentary maker Orla Fokdal who said “Mark is so inspiring and far from any stereotype that as soon as I was told the title of the track I knew I wanted to do it.”

An effortless modern pop classic, PiL founding member Keith Levene unleashes his inimitable full metal jangle, and Nik Void’s vocals are a perfect counterpart to an uncharacteristically understated Stewart on a slice of gorgeously - melancholic brilliance.

The single will come with a great line up of exclusive mixes from the likes of Hype Williams, Perc, Italoconnection, Chicago Footwork maestro Chrissy Murderbot, and Daniel B. of Front 242.

FACT Magazine: Hype Williams take on industrial dub pioneer Mark Stewart on epic new remix

FACT Hype Williams take on Industrial Dub Pioneer Mark Stewart on epic new remix

“The ‘Stereotype’ single, due on Future Noise Music, comes bolstered with a stack of remixes. Perc, industrial techno’s most visible blacksmith, contributes a take, as does footwork mentalist Chrissy Murderbot. Best of all is a freewheeling mix from Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland, once again operating under their Hype Williams moniker. FACT have an exclusive stream of the track, and it’s well worth eight minutes of your time.” FACT.

Mark Stewart vs Primal Scream Autonomia

“I'd written this song about Carlo Giuliani, who was killed at the G8 demonstrations in Genoa. At that point, it was a protest song... afterwards I started getting on with Bobby and I asked Adrian [Sherwood] about doing it. It's important that people hear about the story, it's the message and the atmosphere as much as anything.” – Mark Stewart

“Starting out as a teenager in the late 70s with the Pop Group and thru the 80s with the Maffia up to his new solo record, Mark Stewart has led the attack on conformist reality. Mark is a constant inspiration and a true Thief of Fire. A poet of paranoia and a great laugh. What a guy.” – Primal Scream
