  • Almost a year to the day after the release of their acclaimed debut, "For The First Time," which made it to number four on the charts in the U.K., Black Country, New Road has used the momentum from that album to go full steam ahead into their second album. 2022 is ready and is called "Ants From Up There".

    The album was recorded in the summer of 2021 at Chale Abbey Studios on the Isle Of Wight with the band's longtime live engineer, Sergio Maschetzko. The band themselves are confident of the result, "It was such a pleasure to make. I've come to terms with the fact that this may be the best thing I'll be involved in for the rest of my life. And that's a good thing," says bassist Tyler Hyde.

    That this claim is not so far-fetched, Black Country, New Road have already shown in October. For to coincide with the announcement of "Ants From Up There," the band, consisting of Lewis Evans (sax), May Kershaw (keyboards), Charlie Wayne (drums), Luke Mark (guitar), Isaac Wood (vocals, guitar), Tyler Hyde (bass) and Georgia Ellery (violin), released the first single, "Chaos Space Marine," a track that has already become a live fan favorite at a couple of gigs earlier this year. Frontman Isaac Wood calls this track "the best song we've ever written. We took every idea anyone had and put it into this song. The creation of the song was a really fast, whimsical approach - like we threw all the shit against the wall and just let it all hang out," Wood says

    As with their predecessor, Black Country, New Road do not allow themselves to be pigeonholed into one musical genre on "Ants From Up There". Again they mix experimental and post-rock, indie, klezmer, jazz and intense spoken word performance, even expanding the whole thing with indie folk and pop - a skillful balance between a bold stylistic reworking of the predecessor and a natural further development
