They went on to release their debut album, The Fall of Math, in 2004 on their own label, Dustpunk Records. The record was well received and the band amassed a cult-like fan base following a nationwide tour. Following this success, they entered the studio to record an EP in 2005, but they instead wrote their second full-length, One Time for All Time. They toured heavily throughout the year and into 2006 before laying down new tracks -- with contributions from members of the Mirimar Disaster
, and Circle Takes the Square
-- for their third album, The Destruction of Small Ideas, which arrived the following year.
They were invited to join the Cure
on their tour of the States in 2008, and the following year released Escape from New York -- a live album featuring performances from their shows at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall. Their fourth album, We Were Exploding Anyway, arrived in 2010 and marked the band's shift to more electronic influences and away from the post-rock arrangements of their previous work. This migration was aided with the release later that same year of the EP Heavy Sky, which predominately illustrated their electronic influences and the introduction of more synthesizers and samples. During a busy few years, 65daysofstatic undertook an IndieGoGo project to fund their alternate soundtrack to the science fiction film Silent Running. The original performance was commissioned by the Glasgow Film Festival to perform the new score live at the 2011 festival. Their successful IndieGoGo campaign saw the soundtrack recorded later that year and issued to contributors as a limited-edition vinyl release. Their fifth full-length album, Wild Light, arrived in 2013 and saw the band reintroduce some of the guitar-driven elements of their earlier work. In 2016, 65daysofstatic recorded the soundtrack for sci-fi video game No Man's Sky. Titled No Man's Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe, the album was released by Laced Records in June of that year. ~ Scott Kerr, Rovi
