"After a seven year break from recording, musician / producer and ex-Depeche Mode alumni Alan Wilder returns with Recoil's fifth studio album, "SubHuman", Released on Mute on 9th July 2007.

Wilder's skill at blending diverse and eclectic musical styles with often controversial subjects has produced an album of complex sonic imagery and expansive dynamic range. As layered, intelligent and rich as you would expect, each song comes impeccably produced, peerlessly structured and brilliantly arranged : redefining Electronics with a sure and unique vision.

Collaborating with Recoil on "SubHuman" is Bluesman Joe Richardson, whose evocative vocal style is complimented by accomplished guitar and harmonica performances. Born in Southern Louisiana, Richardson spent years immersed in the murkier side of New Orleans life and offers a unique commentary on conflict, religion, incarceration and personal struggle. English singer Carla Trevaskis, a songwriter in her own right, brings an expressive range and control to "SubHuman" and has worked with artists as diverse as Fred de Faye (Eurythmics), Cliff Hewitt (Apollo 440) and Dave McDonald (Portishead)."
