The album ‘LP4’, their fourth for XL, was conceived during the prolific LP3 recording sessions at Old Soul Studios, in rural upstate New York. The band has toured relentlessly since then, playing shows as far away as Vietnam, China and Cambodia, and selling out bigger venues than ever before. Ratatat's US touring ended with two sold out nights at New York's Terminal 5, playing to over 6,000 people. The band described LP4 as a 'weirder' listen than LP3, with a much braver approach to the arrangements. Ratatat incorporated even more sounds and instruments into the mix on this album, working for the first time with a full string section, which they recorded at Glassworks Studios in Manhattan.
