Ants From Up There by Black Country, New Road

It’s coming soon and you can pre-order it right now! 

Black Country, New Road will soon be back with their sophomore release Ants From Up There and from what we’ve already heard, it’s going to be a big deal. 

It’s a follow up to one of 2021’s finest slabs of vinyl, For The First Time

That was an album so packed with influences from post-punk, spoken-word to jazz to metal and so much more that it should never have worked at all but it does and so, so well.

In fact, it’s fair to say that no matter how long the songs ran, we were sat around in awe of the band’s ability to merge everything into a coherent and gnarly masterpiece!

The first single from Ants From Up There arrived this week in the form of Chaos Space Marine and it suggests a slightly different direction. 

At just under four minutes long, it still encompasses a huge range of influences but it’s tighter and more frenetic.

We think that a pre-order is a guarantee of a great release day. Get one now before the limited editions are all gone.
