Algiers incendiary new single and accompanying video ‘Void’, is out now. The song, taken from the Atlanta group’s hotly anticipated third album, There Is No Year, released January 17 on Matador Records, will also be available as a special flexi disc as part of the album vinyl package.
As immediately evident from its accompanying live video, recorded in the band’s home town of Atlanta, ‘Void’ is Algiers at their visceral, powerhouse peak – a three-minute adrenalin-surge of hypnotic and infectious breakneck punk rock, with Matt Tong’s thunderous drums, guitarist Lee Tesche’s distorted shards and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Mahan’s propulsive bass coming together around frontman Franklin James Fisher’s feverish recitation: “Got to find a way to get out of it!”
Algiers headline London’s Village Underground on February 5, alongside stops in Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds as part of their UK headline tour, before continuing to further European and North American dates.
