Band: BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD

Who: Experimental 7-piece from London producing a hypnotic mix
of prog and math rock, jazz, post-psych-punk, and other musical roads.

In February of 2021, they impressed big time with their debut full
length For The First Time entering indie land by the big gates.

New album: ANTS FROM UP THERE
Out: 4 February 2022 – order here

New single: SNOW GLOBES
The 4th piece we get to hear

Charlie Wayne (drummer) says: “Snow Globes was one of the songs which had
existed before we wrote the majority of the songs on AFUT. Though it’s a pretty good representation of the musical world we wanted to explore on the album at large. Rather
than writing a song with a number of distinct sections we wanted to see what we could do
with one continuous riff. It was a real exploration in trying to create something maximalist whilst limiting ourselves with minimal musical choices.

Play this a couple of times and you’re hooked. One repetitive guitar riff,
some drums, some violins, excorsistic vocals, one hellacious eruption.

Spectacular stuff…

Band: BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD

Who: Experimental 7-piece from London producing a hypnotic mix

In February of 2021, they impressed big time with their debut full

Press info: Following on almost exactly a year to the day from the release of their acclaimed debut For the first time, the band have harnessed the momentum from that record and run full pelt into their second, with Ants From Up There managing to strike a skilful balance between feeling like a bold stylistic overhaul of what came before, as well as a natural progression.

Tyler Hyde (bass player): “We were just so hyped the whole time. It was such a pleasure to make. I’ve kind of accepted that this might be the best thing that I’m ever part of for the rest
of my life. And that’s fine.”

Sound-Challenging Squad BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD Canned Their 2nd Album And Share Its Lead Single

Daily electricity to load your batteries

Britpop is back, but not poppy, nor chart-orientated, nor with a macho rock ‘n roll
attitude. No, new British bands like Black Midi, The Murder Capital (well, actually,
they’re Irish), and Black Country, New Road explore other directions.

These young gunslingers dive into not-commerce-orientated sonic territories resulting in experimental exploits of their own containing prog and math rock, jazz, post-psych-punk, and other musical challenges. I agree they do not invent a new wheel, but the way these bands turn different genres upside down and create an adventurous sound without resonating arty-farty or complex is pretty terrific.

One of them, London’s collective BLACK COUNTRY, NEW ROAD stunned with their brilliant jazz-infused debut album For The First Time early this year. And they’re ready
for a second time with the follow-up ANTS FROM UP THERE. Out next year, on 22 February. Order info here.

Press statement: “Almost exactly a year to the day from the release of their acclaimed debut “For the first time”, the band have harnessed the momentum from that record and run full pelt into their second, with “Ants From Up There” managing to strike a skillful balance between feeling like a bold stylistic overhaul of what came before, as well as a natural progression.”

Along with this announcement we get the lead single.

CHAOS SPACE MARINE is “the best song we’ve ever written. We threw in every idea anyone had with that song. So the making of it was a really fast, whimsical approach – like throwing
all the shit at the wall and just letting everything stick.”
says frontman Isaac Wood.

Sounds like great shit to me.
