Winter is coming!
No I don’t mean the highly anticipated return of a certain TV show, I mean New Model Army will be returning to The Robin 2 in Bilston as part of their tour promoting their latest album “Winter”.
Winter is their first full studio album since their acclaimed long-player “Between Dog and Wolf” in 2013, which, according to The Times “marks a creative renaissance for the band from Bradford”. This album saw New Model Army receive the best critical response of their career and top 30 chart positions in UK and Germany their highest since “The Love of Hopeless Causes “on Epic, 20 years previously.
“Winter” was released on band s own Attack Attack label via Red Essential in the UK and Ireland and with earMUSIC worldwide. Formats include special bookpack CD, double gatefold vinyl, download and streaming.
The album is a powerful and emotionally intense body of work. From the opening epic “Beginning” through to the closing song “After Something” the album builds on the new directions taken by “Between Dog and Wolf”, yet also has familiar echoes of the immediacy and engagement of the band s classic albums “The Ghost of Cain” and “Thunder and Consolation”.
Says founder, lead Singer and main songwriter Justin Sullivan:
“Between Dog and Wolf” opened up a lot of creative doors for us, so it was exciting to go and look inside. The results were not necessarily planned as usual we felt our way – but I think “Winter” has a really strong identity. It is very much the sound of people in difficult places something that so many of us can relate to at the moment, on a lot of different levels. It is a much more of a band album than “Between Dog and Wolf” and we made a deliberate choice in mixing it to sound more aggressive and a little less polished”.
The album features striking artwork by long time artistic collaborator Joolz Denby.
