We ate the machine, which was released in August as a double gatefold album with Karate House (an older album not previously available in the States), is due out on MySpace Records September 30.

The record will also be available at all digital outlets as two separate albums except at iTunes, where the two releases will be bundled at one price for two weeks, after which they’ll be available separately.

Polysics came together 10 years ago, when frontman Hiroyuki Hayashi, aka Hiro, knew he had to form his own band after being introduced to new wave pioneers Devo.

“I was shocked by it,” Hiro said. “I thought it was so much more punk than just acting like a gang by greasing one’s hair.

“I was so impressed, and I thought, ‘I want to do new wave punk dressed in a jumpsuit like Devo!'”

Over the past decade, Hiro, along with bandmates Kayo, Fumi and Yano, has released half a dozen full-length recordings, including 2007’s definitive Polysics’ compilation, POLYSICS OR DIE!!!, the group’s best selling U.S. album to date.

For those not familiar with the band’s all-things-’80s-via-Tokyo style, here’s the video for “Electric Surfin’ Go Go” from Karate House.
