Published Mar 24, 2015Raised in the American south, and now split between London and New York, rock trio Algiers sound like few other acts. Their near-industrial post-punk has drawn huge accolades, and they're finally gearing up to release their anticipated debut album.
The self-titled release sees the group working with Matador Records, which will release the record on June 2.
A press release explains that the release is "steeped in radical politics and deeply indebted to post-punk's sonic trailblazing and gospel's spiritual bloodletting," adding that "the album imbues neo-modernist hymns with caustic social sentiment and explosive noise."
The write-up adds that Algiers are inspired by a vast array of artists, including Nina Simone, PJ Harvey, Suicide and Public Enemy.
