Originally formed to try and write music to fit the unreleased and little known John Carpenter flick ‘Stealth Bomber’ starring Kurt Russell.  Set over ’65 Days of Static’ a period of time after some unknown global infrastructure and communications breakdown, it also gave 65 their name.

‘The Fall of Math’ is was the debut album by 65daysofstatic from Sheffield, UK, who meld seamless guitar shapes with ferocious drum ‘n bass styled beats, live drums and c-c-c-computer g-g-g-g-glitch to create a soundtrack to a new dimension – where rock, dance and electronica are equals.


Released in Europe in 2004 and Japan in 2005, ‘The Fall of Math’ was heaped with critical praises and championed by BBC radio DJs John Peel and Zane Lowe, among others. It appeared on numerous best of 2004 lists and earned the band recognition as ”one of the few genuine boundary-pushers in contemporary rock music”. The album has now been released in North America on CD and digitally worldwide. 

With the 2007 release of their 3rd album, The Destruction of Small Ideas’, the band continued to expand their fanbase and attracted the attention of Robert Smith, who invited them to tour North America and Europe with The Cure in 2008.
