New Model Army (opens in new tab) have announced that they’ll release a new album later this year.
The follow-up to 2016’s Winter (opens in new tab) is titled From Here and it’ll arrive on August 23 through earMUSIC.
From Here was recorded earlier this year on the Norwegian island of Giske at Ocean Sound Recording Studio, which the band say had a profound impact on the way the 12 new tracks developed.
New Model Army say in a statement: “We all have different lives and different tastes in almost everything, including music. One thing we have in common is the love of bleak, open, cold, rugged landscapes – water, snow, rock.
“So this was the perfect place for us to work on something collectively – at all times while we were working, we could look up and see the sky, the sea and melting snow on the mountains, all in a constant state of change.
“So this album has a feel that is different to our other albums, but it still contains all the elements that characterise our peculiarly unidentifiable music – perhaps even more than ever.
“And From Here was an obvious title. The record belongs to a very special place and a particular time – what is happening in the world, where we are as a band and where we are as people.”
New Model Army have released a trailer for the album showing some of the landscapes surrounding the studio which can be seen below.
To mark the album news, the band have also revealed details of a UK and European tour which will take place throughout October, November and December.
Tickets will go on sale from 10am on Thursday (May 16).

New Model Army recorded the follow-up to 2016's Winter on the remote Norwegian island of Giske, which the band say gives the record a different feel from their previous albums.
