The 40th Anniversary Concert - Update

Here are some questions and answers concerning the online Global Gathering on 24th October.

1) Will the Online gig be available to watch later?
Yes, it will be available to view after the live event, BUT this maybe on a different system. If you cannot join us live, please do not buy a ticket yet.

2) On what format will it be screened?
It will be broadcast from a dedicated server in HTML5 which is very high quality transmission and will work with all major browsers (Windows, Safari, Chrome, Firefox etc). If you have very slow internet speed, the server should be able to detect your connection and adjust the quality accordingly. We will be discussing the technical side of the event more fully a little nearer the time.

3) What time will it be screened at and how long will it last?
We'll begin at 20.00 in the UK (BST) and the band will play for between 150 and 180 minutes including a break half-way through.

4) When will the T-shirts arrive?
We are about to begin printing the first couple of thousand of these. If you want to receive your shirt before the broadcast, you must order before midnight on September 24th. We will still take T-shirt orders after this date, but we cannot guarantee that they'll arrive before the Show.

Please note that on Friday there was a considerable rush in the Shop and we had issues with Paypal cancelling a few orders for no reason that we could detect. We turned Paypal off for a short time and we now think that the issue is solved. However, if you ordered with Paypal last week, please check the order status in your account to make sure it has not been cancelled. If it has been, you should be clear to re-order. As always, rest assured that everyone will get what they paid for, they will only pay once and nobody will miss out ;-).

Looking forward to it!

Carnival Redux

Tickets (and T-shirts) are selling very well for our Global Gathering on 24th October. We will be giving more details of this broadcast very soon. Meanwhile we have had a separate project in the pipeline...


We have always felt that Carnival was the one album where the recording, mixing and mastering didn’t bring the end result close to what we had originally intended in the writing. So when our label, Edel, declared their interest in licensing and reissuing the album (with others to follow), we discovered four associated tracks (B-sides and unreleased songs) to add to it and saw an opportunity to ‘reimagine’ the album as a whole.


Wacken Festival 2021

The 40th Anniversary Concert

On 23rd October 1980 New Model Army played their first gig; it has been a wonderful, long, creative and eventful forty-year journey!

We had planned a lot of things to mark our 40th birthday, most of which have necessarily been postponed into next year, but by way of celebration we will be doing a one-off concert on the 24th October 8pm (GMT) this year, which will be performed live and be broadcast online simultaneously around the world – a shared experience for everyone who has ever loved the band.

The concert will be a high-quality, pay-to-view, two-hour (plus) event filmed with multi-cameras, graphics and artwork - with the band playing a wide range of material spanning the 40 years. We will be selling tickets at £10 for which you will be sent an exclusive code to access the broadcast in the hours before the show. There will also be the opportunity to buy an ‘enhanced ticket’ which will include an exclusive Joolz-designed T-shirt to mark the occasion – these will be available in different sizes, up to four shirts per ticket – as we know (and hope) that people will watch in family groups.

Tickets are available HERE

We hope you will join us.

Given the still uncertain situation regarding Covid-19 and the rules for public gatherings, social distancing, and people’s concern about the safety of themselves and others, we have decided to postpone all our concerts this year. This will probably not come as a great surprise.

We have succeeded in rescheduling all major gigs into 2021 and have added new three-hour shows in Kaiserslautern, Strasbourg, Munich & Karlsruhe.

There will also now be a second night at Nottingham Rock City. For a limited time, current ticket holders will receive an email entitling them to buy tickets for the second night at a reduced rate.

The rescheduled date for the London Roundhouse AND an extra night will be announced next week.

All tickets remain valid for the new dates.

We have not yet confirmed the new dates for the shows in Athens, Thessaloniki, Sofia and Istanbul but these will also take place in 2021. We will also hope to celebrate the 40 years (plus one) in the Americas but we have no plans as yet.

However we ARE planning things for this Autumn, including a major birthday celebration in October. More details soon.


Remix Time

For those people with time on their hands, we offer a unique opportunity to play around with the audio files from the studio recording of “Where I Am” – an appropriate song under the circumstances!

Even if you are not a musician or used to working with audio files, most computers have a basic system for playing around with these things.

We encourage all contributions, a simple remix or a radical one, add what you like, replace what you like, change the arrangement, add effects – anything, any genre etc….

This is not a competition - we will not be ‘judging’ what you create, but please feel free to post up your version on any free streaming network of your choice, share it with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube (should you wish to also create a visual) and we'll share your creation.

You can download the individual files – guitars, drums, vocals etc - as waveforms or, if you want to work with smaller files, as MP3s . The link is HERE

(Obviously these files are subject to copyright so can’t be used for commercial purposes).

If you don't have any editing software or have never tried this before and want to, we have heard that Ableton, Cubase, Audacity and Bandlab are a few of many apps, which are offering free software during lockdown.

Have fun, people. We’re looking forward to hearing what you make…

In other news we will be making a major announcement concerning the Autumn Tour next week.
