13th, 14th, 15th APRIL 2018


Preparations for the unique event continue apace…

The times of the events will be as follows:

Friday and Saturday
Doors will open at 19.00
Singing will begin at 20.00. There will be one lengthy (40-45 minute) break and the curfew will be at 23.00.

Doors will open at 14.00
Singing will begin at 15.00. There will be one lengthy (40-45 minute) break and the curfew will be at 18.00.

The band have now decided on 50 songs to be included in the lyric-book from which we will choose what will be sung over the three days. Of course, picking from well over 200, this has proved a complicated task. After much discussion (and the feelings of our Feb 4th volunteers), it has been decided that we will not publish this list in advance. We will only say that the songs are drawn from all different eras of the band’s long history, some very well-known and some less so, and that these are the ones we think will work best. The lyric-books will be given out on arrival.

Please note that seats are not allocated. Any disabled people should come to the front of the queue for opening time. There will be seats for approximately 550 people on the horse-shoe shaped balcony and approximately 300 chairs downstairs arranged around the stage. There will be a bar at the venue selling a variety of soft and alcoholic drinks and a merchandise stall selling a one-off special commemorative T-shirt.

There are still tickets available for the Sunday matinee and, after the late increase in ticket allocation; there are still a handful of tickets remaining for the Friday and Saturday evenings.

Tickets are available from the NMA Online Shop HERE

All tickets sold up to now have been sent out - but tickets to non-UK addresses bought between new and the event will not be sent and should be picked up at the door.

Looking forward to it!
Justin, Michael, Dean, Marshall and Ceri.

Nights Of A 1000 Voices
13th, 14th and 15th April 2018 at Round Chapel, Hackney, London

You know those moments when the band plays quietly and the whole audience sings the words? Sometimes, these are the most emotional experiences - because singing together is the oldest and most basic form of human art, something primal and truly shared. So we are planning two nights of just this, which, to the best of our knowledge, has never been attempted by any band ever.

We have chosen the Round Chapel in Hackney both for its amazing open acoustics and for the circular layout of the room, which we believe will be perfect for the spirit of the event.

These are not concerts as such; this is a community singing event for all those people who love our songs, who love singing and love the feeling of singing together with others. The venue will be fully seated around a small stage constructed in the centre of the room; the whole band will be playing but the arrangements will be deliberately stripped down and very quiet - there will be no big PA system. The nights will be all about the participation and voices of everyone who comes.

While we are open to suggestions, ultimately we will choose the songs that lend themselves best to the idea – strong melodies and slower, easy vocal rhythms will suit best and we will vary these over the two nights. We will issue song-books (included in the price of the ticket) as we understand that people often know particular lines and choruses but usually not all the lyrics; and, of course, we plan to record and film both nights.

Tickets will be £27.50 or £50 for both nights and will be available exclusively from our Shop. Details will follow next week.

If you love singing and love New Model Army songs and love the sense of community that we have created over the years, we hope you’ll join with us from all different corners of the World for these special nights.

Die Trying

Here is a video for Die Trying taking illustrations from Matt Huynh's fabulous "Winter - The Graphic Novel"

The novel is also available to purchase from the New Model Army Online Shop: HERE
and also on tour at the merchandise table.

Devil Video

"As Devil is simply our take on an old, old story, we thought we'd borrow a visual accompaniment from one of the many thousands already in existence - F W Murnau's magnificent 1926 movie 'Faust', starring Gösta Ekman as Faust and Emil Jannings as Mephisto. We recommend anyone to watch the full movie and we hope you enjoy the song."

Winter – the graphic novel

We are very happy to finally announce the arrival of Winter – The Graphic Novel - which has exceeded our very high expectations.

These limited edition high quality A4 62-page works of art are now available to buy in our Shop HERE It will be available at all the shows on the Winter tour.

We have long been interested in the idea of asking a graphic novelist to interpret the band’s narrative lyrics in a style that fits with the music, in the same way that Joolz’s wonderful iconic cover art always works so well for us.

As we began to look at the work of many artists across the World, we became fixated on Matt Huynh, particularly for his incredible work on ‘The Boat’.

Drifts Video

We’d like to share with everyone this beautiful animated video for “Drifts” from the new album Winter.

Many thanks to Khad for putting it together and to the animators (Melissa Lafon, Elodie Legros, Yann Moalic and especially Matthieu Deltour) for allowing their work to be used for this.

The original short film "Haoma" can be seen HERE

***New Album "Winter" Announced***

Our new album “Winter” will be released on August 26th on the band’s own Attack Attack label via Red Essential in the UK and via earMUSIC worldwide. Formats include a special bookpack CD, double gatefold vinyl, download and streaming. As expected, the album is a powerful and emotionally intense body of work – 13 songs and a full hour of new music.

Justin Sullivan: “Between Dog and Wolf” and “Between Wine And Blood” opened up a lot of creative doors for us, so it was exciting to go and look inside. The results were not necessarily planned - as usual we felt our way - but I think “Winter” has a really strong identity. It is very much the sound of people in difficult places – something that so many of us can relate to at the moment, on a lot of different levels. It is a much more of a band album than “Between Dog and Wolf” and we made a deliberate choice in mixing it to sound more aggressive and a little less polished”.

On August 19th we will be releasing a limited edition 1st 7” single, of two new songs from the album “Devil” and “Winter”. This will be the band’s first 7” since our duet with Tom Jones of The Rolling Stones classic “Gimme Shelter” issued in 1993.

The album features striking artwork by long time artistic collaborator Joolz Denby. It forms of a series which includes the 7” and also the cover art of Joolz’s own seventh studio album, “Crow”, recorded with composer Henning Nugel (who also contributed to “Winter”) and which will follow the New Model Army release later in the Autumn.

The 7” will be available in independent stores and to pre-order along with the album via the following links:

***New Joolz Album "Crow" Announced***

Our Attack Attack Records label is proud to release “Crow”, a unique collaboration between poet Joolz Denby and composer Henning Nugel.

Joolz Denby needs no introduction to the New Model Army community. She has been a true underground renaissance artist since the late 1970s. As a poet, she was one of the principle figures to emerge from the post-punk generation, publishing seven collections of work and giving readings all over the World in countless different settings. As a novelist, she has published six volumes, including “Stone Baby” for which she received the New Crime-writer of the Year award in 2000 and “Billie Morgan”, which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Literature in 2006. As a working artist, Joolz has designed all the record covers and visuals for New Model Army for 36 years (as well as being a guiding hand throughout our long career). Her paintings have been shown in many galleries while her unique tattoos have adorned clients from around the globe who come to her Bradford studio.
Crow will be her seventh studio album, with past collaborators including Jah Wobble, members of New Model Army, Mik Davis and many others.

Henning Nugel is the man responsible for two of the glorious string arrangements on our new album – on the title track ‘Winter’ and ‘Drifts’. After years of playing keyboards and guitars in several bands, he joined forces with his brother Ingo and founded Nugel Bros. Music. Focusing on music composition and sound design for games, their portfolio soon included clients as EA Games, Funatics and Blue Byte. Henning is also a member of the Dynamedion team of composers and has written music for many of their prestigious game projects and some of their TV scores. Henning can at times be seen playing fiddle and whistles together with acoustic folk band An-Spiorad and now works from his studio on the outskirts of Potsdam near Berlin.

The official release date is October 7th but we are now selling advance copies in the NMA Shop HERE
There will also be copies for sale on the New Model Army “Winter” tour.
