Published Nov 26, 2019Cult U.K. indie vets Cornershop are returning with their first new album in nearly a decade, and we've got its first single to get us going.
The album is called England Is a Garden, and it will arrive on March 6 via Ample Play Records. Right now, though, you can hear the lead single "No Rock: Save in Roll" below via a newly shared video.
In a statement, Cornershop said of the song, "There is not one without the other, that rock, for all its focus on death is the savior of life."
The band also explained that the track also serves as a homage to England's Midlands, where frontman Tjinder Singh was born and raised.
"[T]he Black Country… gave birth to heavy metal that has gone on to influence the world to dirty rock, whether the streets are lined with pylons or palm trees, the Black Country has allowed us to see things differently," the band explained. "So the sound here goes back to England's Midlands with two thumbs up to the feeling of hearing heavy metal from the back of a stage, as we all ride on and await the female backing vocals of our song to come in."
Right now, you can pre-order England Is a Garden. The album follows 2012's Urban Turban.
