The new album, produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Talking Heads and Yeah Yeah Yeahs), is expected to drop this spring and the band said the release will be far different from anything it’s done before.
“We’re raring to go, especially since we’ve just crafted a record that’s imbued with the kind of uplifting spirit that Britain’s crying out for in these troubled economic times,” singer Paul Smith said. “Our audience are far from passive, which makes for a unique atmosphere at each show.”
