Algiers deliver new single 'I Can't Stand It!'

With their eagerly-awaited new album landing later next month, Algiers have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'I Can't Stand It!' sees them team up with Samuel T. Herring (Future Islands) and Jae Matthews (Boy Harsher) for the release, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Irreversible Damage' and 'Bite Back' in previewing their new LP 'SHOOK', which is out on the 24th February via Matador.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Franklin James Fisher said, “It’s a very personal song about a devastating loss of someone I believed to be the love of my life which nearly ended in my suicide. I think the song’s narrative arc reflects the sense of dread and the path that led me to that moment. She put on "What You Don’t Want Me To Be" the first time I heard it and I knew immediately that I was going to sample it—I just couldn’t have known the result would be a song about our own end. But every time I sing that song now it feels like I heal a little bit more.”

While Jae Matthews added of her contribution, "I wanted to give Algiers not so much a narrative, but a recollection of a feeling. That abstract evocation that comes when you think about someone who broke yr heart and how that pain still tethers you."
