Black Midi announce new album 'Hellfire'

Following on from the release of their highly-praised sophomore LP 'Cavalcade' last year, Black Midi have returned once again to announce the details behind their next studio album, arriving later this summer.

The new full-length 'Hellfire' is being previewed by the new lead single 'Welcome To Hell', which comes accompanied by a stunning Gustaf Holtenäs-directed video, and is set to be released on the 15th July via Rough Trade.

Describing the new release, the band's Geordie Greep said, "If Cavalcade was a drama, Hellfire is like an epic action film."

Adding, "Almost everyone depicted is a kind of scumbag. Almost everything I write is from a true thing, something I experienced and exaggerated and wrote down. I don’t believe in Hell, but all that old world folly is great for songs, I’ve always loved movies and anything else with a depiction of Hell. Dante’s Inferno. When Homer goes to Hell in The Simpsons. There’s a robot Hell in Futurama. Isaac Bashevis Singer, a Jewish writer who portrays a Satan interfering in people’s lives. There’s loads!"
