Algiers "Void"

Algiers have released their new single “Void.” The song will appear on the Atlanta group’s third album, There Is No Year, released January 17th on Matador Records. Algiers embark on a UK tour in February, headlining London’s Village Underground on February 5th, alongside stops in Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds, before continuing to European and North American dates. The band today also announce a run of US in-store performances, kicking off on album release day, January 17th , at Criminal Records in their home town of Atlanta. A full live itinerary can be found below the Blake Butler-penned bio, author of the novel There Is No Year, from which the album takes its name.

“What I wanted to do is create a negative space wherein I can exist and engage but at the same time not be so exposed,” Fisher explains. He speaks of the record’s perspective as not only a political apparatus, but an intimate, responsive evocation of his understanding that “nothing is ever what you expect.”

Under the direction of producers Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Oren Ambarchi) and Ben Greenberg (Zs, Uniform, The Men), There Is No Year encompasses future- minded post-punk R&B from the trapped heart of ATL, where they began; to
industrial soundscapes à la 4AD-era Scott Walker or Iggy & Bowie’s Berlin period; to something like the synthetic son of Marvin Gaye and Fever Ray. The rhythm section of multi-instrumentalist Ryan Mahan and Matt Tong (ex-Bloc Party)
moves back and forth from infectious menace to sci-fi soundtrack to big band fever dream.
