COVID-19 UPDATE 18/05/2020

There are very uneven signs that the Covid-19 lock-downs across the World are beginning to ease. However, there is no sign that the threat of the virus has gone away or that restrictions on social-behaviour are going to be totally lifted in the coming weeks and months. So we are currently reviewing the situation regarding all our live concerts in 2020. We will make announcements as soon as we have proper information.

However, we’re glad to say that we do have other NMA related projects in the pipeline for later in the year.

We would also like to thank everyone who bought the limited “Only Stupid Bastards Beat Women” T-shirt. As a result of this we have been able to pay £3000 (100% of the profits) to IDAS - the largest charity in Yorkshire supporting anyone experiencing or affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence. This has been a time when they need as much help as possible. Our thanks to Joolz and Ben Stone for putting this together.

Stay well everyone

New Model Army & Orchestra Sinfonia Leipzig Update

New Model Army & Orchestra Sinfonia Leipzig
We are happy to announce the re-arranged dates for the Tempodrom and SO36 shows in Berlin. The concert with the Orchestra Sinfonia Leipzig has now been rescheduled for Friday 16th July 2021 and the corresponding stripped down punk shows at the legendary SO36 will now take place on Saturday 17th July 2021 and Sunday 18th July 2021.
All original tickets for these shows remain valid. However, should you wish to receive a refund you should contact your ticket agent directly.

We are still looking to re-arrange the other postponed shows and will let you know as soon as we have news.

The limited edition “Only Stupid Bastards Beat Women” tee-shirt for the International Women's Day 2020, which was a variation on the iconic “Only Stupid Bastards...” design by Joolz, has now been produced and will be sent out over the next two weeks.

We can also announce that the classic Black Logo Tee has also been re-stocked in the NMA Shop in all sizes and can be found here:
Men's: HERE
Womens: HERE

Sadly we are having problems sourcing more of the new polo shirts and hoodies, but as soon as we do we will let you know.

More Live Tracks
Finally, as promised, the final installment of the live tracks recorded earlier this year at Manchester O2 Ritz are now available for free from:
Manchester Part 1: HERE
Manchester Part 2: HERE

Stay well, friends.

COVID-19 UPDATE 24/04/2020

Unsurprisingly, we are now re-arranging ALL our summer shows. We are confirmed on the Kubix Festival on the first weekend of July 2021 and Beautiful Days in August 2021 and we hope the same will be true of the Wacken and Burg Hertzberg Festivals. The events in Berlin are also being rescheduled into next summer. Tickets bought for these events will roll over but there will also be refunds made available. We are currently looking at alternative dates for the shows in Glasgow and Osnabruck and will let you know as soon as possible. At this time we are hopeful regarding the October shows but of course the situation is ongoing.

As a small consolation, we are making available a free download of tracks recorded at our Manchester gig in January, one batch this week and a second next week - HERE. Mixed with a big, boomy real-live sound, we hope you enjoy them.

Stay well, friends.

COVID-19 UPDATE 17/04/2020

Firstly we hope everyone is well out there. The current lockdown will be a different experience for us all depending on our domestic circumstances, but we hope that you are all coping OK.

Sadly, all German Festivals this year have been cancelled. Meanwhile, we have had no official word from Berlin regarding the concerts at the Tempodrom and SO36 but it seems unlikely that they will go ahead; we will know one way or another in the coming days. The same is true of Glasgow and Osnabruck. If these concerts are not happening this summer, they will be postponed rather than cancelled and we will rearrange dates.

At this stage the UK Festivals (Kubix Festival and Beautiful Days) are not cancelled, but again it seems unlikely that they will actually happen. However, we are optimistic that our shows from October onwards will go ahead as planned.

Shop News
We are still taking and processing orders and sending out items although this is now done on a twice-weekly rather daily basis. The ‘Only Stupid Bastards Beat Women’ T-shirts are being printed and we hope to begin sending these out next week. In addition we should be able to replenish some stock, notably the classic logos. All the remaining ‘From Here’ merchandise is now in the sale. Finally, we are down to the last few copies of the 1000 Voices CD/DVD digi-pack so this is the last chance to buy this record of the extraordinary event two years ago.

The band themselves are all in good health and are busy creating and living.
Stay well people x

Happy New Year!

And so we come to the end of 2019 which was quite a year for us, beginning with an intensive couple of months of writing and then the adventure of recording “From Here” in Norway, mixing and setting up the album, a flurry of events over the summer and, for us, a really memorable tour through the autumn.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us through the year – came to the shows, listened to the album and everyone who in any way was moved by what we have made.

Our 40th Anniversary year will begin with the rescheduled UK shows and then trips to Finland (we have added a third show in Jyväskylä), Turkey (two more shows in Ankara and Izmir are now added to the rescheduled Istanbul gig), Spain, Greece and Bulgaria. We are not planning to do too much more in the first half of the year but through the summer we expect to be busy – not least with the Orchestra concert in Berlin in July. We will record this of course, and we also plan the release of other physical product during the year – details soon.

In the second half 2020, we will celebrate our 40 years in a lot of cities across Europe and beyond. Our plans are still being finalized - stand by for more announcements in the New Year.

Happy New Year to everyone.

New Model Army & Orchestra Sinfonia Leipzig

We are delighted to announce that, as part of our 40th Anniversary, we will be playing a concert with a full orchestra, the Sinfonia Leipzig, at the famous Tempodrom in Berlin on 17th July 2020. So much of our work has had orchestral influences, that this seems like a wonderful opportunity to explore even more musical possibilities and we will begin working on arrangements with Shir-Ran Yinon in the new year. This is not part of a tour but, like the Nights of 1000 Voices project, an absolutely unique one-off event. Tickets are already on sale from

In typical New Model Army style, on the same weekend, we will be doing exactly the opposite, playing a stripped down punk rock set at a Berlin venue yet to be confirmed. Details soon.

Where I Am Video

We wanted to create a visual for our song "Where I Am" and it seemed right to use a sequence of John Sevigny's wonderful photographs for this, each one telling a small story. Enjoy...
