New Model Army – Winter Gatherings Update

Each year, as our customary December gigs come around, we are always challenged by the question of - which songs to play? In recent years we’ve often concentrated on material from a new release, but this year, with no new album, we’re working on something a bit different.

With so much material to draw on, we’re planning a whole evening of New Model Army music, divided into two sets.

We will include some songs that we don’t play very often, rearranging some with different instrumentation - music stretching all the way back through our long history - we're really looking forward to it!

We are also pleased to announce that The Young Gods will be our special guests in Köln.

Tour Dates:
14 Dec London, O2 Forum
15 Dec Paris, Le Trabendo
16 Dec Köln, Palladium - Special Guests: The Young Gods

Ed Alleyne-Johnson - New Album

Ed Alleyne-Johnson is releasing a new album, his first new music in seven years, on 1st December. His instantly recognisable looped violin style is prominent on the first disc of ""Pluto"", but disc two is something of a departure. Ed adapted a Roland guitar synthesiser to work with his violin's midi-output and all the woodwind, flutes, harps and other instruments are actually played on the violin.

Pluto is a concept album. Ed explains - "A few nights after the Brexit result, I had a vivid dream in which the Plutocrats, the technologically advanced rulers of Pluto's underground empire, and current administrators of Hades, intercepted our election result and decided our nation would be the perfect gateway into their world. They promised us immortality, untold riches, and a lucrative free trade deal if we agreed to work for them, leaving the planet Earth behind and relocating the whole of the British Isles on to the surface of Pluto!"

Pre-orders are available on Amazon and itunes.

Die Trying

Here is a video for Die Trying taking illustrations from Matt Huynh's fabulous "Winter - The Graphic Novel"

The novel is also available to purchase from the New Model Army Online Shop: HERE
and also on tour at the merchandise table.

Online Shop Update

We are happy to announce some more shirts for sale in the shop. We have just taken delivery of the Green And Grey shirts, with a back print "you're the one I remember from these valleys of the green & the grey", in both normal tee and also ladies vest versions – although in limited sizes at this moment. There are also New Model Army logo embroidered hoodies in sizes up to 5XL and new Devil Tees available.

Mens Tees: HERE
Ladies Tees: HERE
Hoodies: HERE

In response to various concerns we had and also from the feedback we have received, we have changed and upgraded some of the products in the shop.

The Turntable Mats have been re-engineered to provide a more consistently circular design in a heavier format. The thickness is now 5mm up from the original 2mm with a heavier weight which will aid the prevention of any slipping issues on the turntable and provide a better quality all round. We have changed the mugs due to concerns about the standard of the coatings as there was a some degradation around the rims. The coatings are now a lot better and the mugs have been dishwasher tested to 2000 cycles and show no signs of degradation. We are also updating the list of phone models available in the shop, which will include the new Samsung S8 and S8 Plus models and adding some matte and translucent cases as well.

We are also happy to announce that we will be stocking the Blackballed albums (Marshall's other band). We already have the latest album Fulton's Point in both physical and digital versions and have added the first album “Colossus” as well. Digital versions of Colossus and the first EP are also available for download.

Blackballed CD's: HERE

Devil Video

"As Devil is simply our take on an old, old story, we thought we'd borrow a visual accompaniment from one of the many thousands already in existence - F W Murnau's magnificent 1926 movie 'Faust', starring Gösta Ekman as Faust and Emil Jannings as Mephisto. We recommend anyone to watch the full movie and we hope you enjoy the song."

Winter – the graphic novel

We are very happy to finally announce the arrival of Winter – The Graphic Novel - which has exceeded our very high expectations.

These limited edition high quality A4 62-page works of art are now available to buy in our Shop HERE It will be available at all the shows on the Winter tour.

We have long been interested in the idea of asking a graphic novelist to interpret the band’s narrative lyrics in a style that fits with the music, in the same way that Joolz’s wonderful iconic cover art always works so well for us.

As we began to look at the work of many artists across the World, we became fixated on Matt Huynh, particularly for his incredible work on ‘The Boat’.

Drifts Video

We’d like to share with everyone this beautiful animated video for “Drifts” from the new album Winter.

Many thanks to Khad for putting it together and to the animators (Melissa Lafon, Elodie Legros, Yann Moalic and especially Matthieu Deltour) for allowing their work to be used for this.

The original short film "Haoma" can be seen HERE

***New Album "Winter" Announced***

Our new album “Winter” will be released on August 26th on the band’s own Attack Attack label via Red Essential in the UK and via earMUSIC worldwide. Formats include a special bookpack CD, double gatefold vinyl, download and streaming. As expected, the album is a powerful and emotionally intense body of work – 13 songs and a full hour of new music.

Justin Sullivan: “Between Dog and Wolf” and “Between Wine And Blood” 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”.

On August 19th we will be releasing a limited edition 1st 7” single, of two new songs from the album “Devil” and “Winter”. This will be the band’s first 7” since our duet with Tom Jones of The Rolling Stones classic “Gimme Shelter” issued in 1993.

The album features striking artwork by long time artistic collaborator Joolz Denby. It forms of a series which includes the 7” and also the cover art of Joolz’s own seventh studio album, “Crow”, recorded with composer Henning Nugel (who also contributed to “Winter”) and which will follow the New Model Army release later in the Autumn.

The 7” will be available in independent stores and to pre-order along with the album via the following links:

***PLEASE NOTE*** VAT IS ADDED AT THE CHECKOUT PAGE WHERE APPLICABLE***



***New Joolz Album "Crow" Announced***

Our Attack Attack Records label is proud to release “Crow”, a unique collaboration between poet Joolz Denby and composer Henning Nugel.

Joolz Denby needs no introduction to the New Model Army community. She has been a true underground renaissance artist since the late 1970s. As a poet, she was one of the principle figures to emerge from the post-punk generation, publishing seven collections of work and giving readings all over the World in countless different settings. As a novelist, she has published six volumes, including “Stone Baby” for which she received the New Crime-writer of the Year award in 2000 and “Billie Morgan”, which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Literature in 2006. As a working artist, Joolz has designed all the record covers and visuals for New Model Army for 36 years (as well as being a guiding hand throughout our long career). Her paintings have been shown in many galleries while her unique tattoos have adorned clients from around the globe who come to her Bradford studio.
Crow will be her seventh studio album, with past collaborators including Jah Wobble, members of New Model Army, Mik Davis and many others.

Henning Nugel is the man responsible for two of the glorious string arrangements on our new album – on the title track ‘Winter’ and ‘Drifts’. After years of playing keyboards and guitars in several bands, he joined forces with his brother Ingo and founded Nugel Bros. Music. Focusing on music composition and sound design for games, their portfolio soon included clients as EA Games, Funatics and Blue Byte. Henning is also a member of the Dynamedion team of composers and has written music for many of their prestigious game projects and some of their TV scores. Henning can at times be seen playing fiddle and whistles together with acoustic folk band An-Spiorad and now works from his studio on the outskirts of Potsdam near Berlin.

The official release date is October 7th but we are now selling advance copies in the NMA Shop HERE
There will also be copies for sale on the New Model Army “Winter” tour.
