Info for Winter
This is their first full studio album since their acclaimed long-player “Between Dog and Wolf” in 2013, which, according to The Times "marks a creative renaissance for the band from Bradford". This album saw New Model Army receive the best critical response of their career and top 30 chart positions in UK and German - their highest since “The Love of Hopeless Causes“ 20 years previously. “Between Dog And Wolf” was shortly followed in 2014 by Matt Reid’s fascinating and absorbing documentary feature film “Between Dog And Wolf: The New Model Army Story” which had a successful run at worldwide film festivals. Its excellent reviews on home entertainment release (described in their 4-star review by Mojo as an “uplifting rags-to-more-rags tale of the cult-like post punks”) in turn created further world-wide interest in this unique and passionate group who have always remained true to themselves and successful on their own terms whilst remaining outside the mainstream.
“Winter” will be released on band’s own Attack Attack label via Red Essential in the UK and Ireland and with earMUSIC worldwide. Formats include CD Hardcover Mediabook, Double 180g-Vinyl Gatefold, download and streaming.
“Beginning” through to the closing song “After Something” the album builds on the new directions taken by “Between Dog And Wolf”, yet also has familiar echoes of the immediacy and engagement of the band’s classic albums “The Ghost of Cain” and “Thunder and Consolation”.
Says founder, lead Singer and main songwriter Justin Sullivan: “Between Dog And Wolf” opened up a lot of creative doors for us, so it was exciting to go and look inside. The results were not necessarily planned – as usual we felt our way - but I think “Winter” has a really strong identity. It is very much the sound of people in difficult places – something that so many of us can relate to at the moment, on a lot of different levels. It is a much more of a band album than “Between Dog And Wolf” and we made a deliberate choice in mixing it to sound more aggressive and a little less polished.”

New Model Army
Formed by Justin Sullivan in Bradford in 1980, New Model Army’s beginnings were inspired by Northern Soul, Punk Rock and the incendiary atmosphere of the times. Since then, they have had a long, creative and eventful journey. They have been massively influential in ‘post-punk’, ‘folk-rock’, ‘political-rock’, ‘goth’, ‘metal’ and all kinds of musical sub-cultures but they have steadfastly refused to belong to any club that would have them as members. Without a specific ‘genre’ audience, and never having had a massive worldwide hit, New Model Army still have album sales in the millions, have attracted some of the biggest producers on the planet (Glyn Johns, Tom Dowd, Andy Wallace, Bob Clearmountain, Joe Barresi) and have built up an almost religious devotion amongst fans. Having grasped early on that the Internet was going to revolutionise the music industry, from the mid-1990s they set out on the now fashionable wholly independent path of controlling all aspects of their output. As a result, they have been perfectly placed to withstand the changes in the Industry and have outlasted most of their peers. There are very few bands in NMA’s position of being able to record and release what they like when they like, while maintaining a worldwide following and all without making a single artistic or commercial compromise. Originally formed as a three piece, the current five piece features Michael Dean on drums, Dean White on keyboards and guitar, Marshall Gill on guitar and Ceri Monger on bass.
