OFFICERS are proud to announce that they have collaborated on a brand new track with electro pioneer and godfather Gary Numan.
Entitled ‘Petals’ the NUMAN x OFFICERS track will be given away on a first come first served basis, exclusively during Numan’s forthcoming Machine Music Tour. The track will be available as a limited edition (100 copies only) physical collaboration package, handmade, and designed by acclaimed British artist STUART SEMPLE.
The edition will comprise a black foil envelope, revealing 3 individual CDs each with a unique version of the track, and a mini art print specifically designed, numbered and signed by Stuart for this unique collaboration.
Along with the NUMAN X OFFICERS track, the additional CDs will include a unique rework from uber producer, re-mixer and superstar DJ JAGZ KOONER and another special remix by LOSERS - headed up by XFMs legendary Eddy Temple Morris, Paul Mullen from YourCodeNameIs:Milo and The Cooper Temple Clause’s Tom Bellamy.
Alongside Numan and Semple, Jagz and Eddy have both been long term supporters of the band. OFFICERS are excited and honored to play host to this unique five way collaboration stretching across art and music. More significantly though, is the fact that all proceeds will be going to charity, CALM, Campaign Against Living Miserably, to reduce the high suicide rate amongst men under 35, http://www.thecalmzone.net/
A QR code directing you to CALMs donation page will come with the package. We hope you will follow the link, donate whatever you can afford - or share with your friends to raise awareness of this important charity – think of it a bit like a futuristic honesty box.

OFFICERS are main support to Gary Numan on his forthcoming UK tour during May and June 2012. It is the first live outing in support of their ambitious debut album ‘On The Twelve Thrones’ - released at the tail end of 2011 also in collaboration with Stuart Semple.
The record quickly picked up last minute nominations for album of the year, with Gary himself enthusing to Artrocker magazine that ‘he’d been waiting for something special like this to come along for a while’.
OFFICERS have also completed a remix of ‘The Fall’, for an Artrocker Gary Numan remix album being given away digitally at the end of May. This also includes remixes by Alec Empire, The Duke Spirit and Nine Inch Nails’ Alessandro Cortini. OFFICERS ‘The Fall’ remix has been handpicked by Gary as the key track and is being streamed this week as part of Numan week. http://www.artrocker.tv/news/article/numan-week-on-artrocker.tv
