Remember Justice - The French electro-beat-song making machines whose hit "D.A.N.C.E" has been remixed by everyone who is anyone, including Justice themselves and whose video for their head-shattering track "Stress" was as much disturbing as it was an intriguing insight into a gang infected mindset?
Well, after three years - and a few trips around the globe - since their debut, † (aka Cross), the Parisian duo of Gaspard Auge and Xavier de Rosnay have finally unveiled their intentions to release the long awaited sophomore LP. According to Pitchfork Media, the yet-to-be-titled album is due out later this year. And as more of a teaser than anything, they've released a video for their latest single, "Civilization". Check out the evolution and simultaneous destruction of the earth below.

There really isn't much to say about two French men hunched over turntables and other complex audio equipment - performing the tedious chore of disk jockey - that would otherwise go unnoticed - if it weren't for the fact that Justice rides on their own fabricated appeal and baseless "buzz"; sited themselves in the eyes of critics everywhere - who always like to marvel at the latest electro-pop hybrid. In the tiny, yet congested world of house, or neo-disco, or any such like genre Justice has taken too lately, something truly different must stand out for one to take notice. In the case of Justice, it may have been the slight crossover song "D.A.N.C.E," or a thin attempt at incisiveness with the video "Stress," which I can't say much on other than it was a competent effort (filmmaking wise).
