Black Country, New Road announce new album 'Ants From Up There'

Following on from the huge reception for their brilliant Mercury Prize nominated debut album 'For The First Time' earlier this year, Black Country, New Road are back once again to announce the details behind their next studio LP, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Ants From Up There' was recorded at Chale Abbey Studios, Isle Of Wight, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Chaos Space Marine', and is set to be released on the 4th February via Ninja Tune.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Isaac Wood described it as "the best song we’ve ever written... We threw in every idea anyone had with that song, so the making of it was a really fast, whimsical approach - like throwing all the shit at the wall and just letting everything stick."

While the band's Tyler Hyde added of the album, "We were just so hyped the whole time. It was such a pleasure to make. I've kind of accepted that this might be the best thing that I'm ever part of for the rest of my life. And that's fine."
