Algiers Sign with Matador for Debut Album
Published Mar 24, 2015Raised in the American south, and now split between London and New York, rock trio Algiers sound like few other acts. Their near-industrial post-punk has drawn huge accolades, and they're finally gearing up to release their anticipated debut album.
The self-titled release sees the group working with Matador Records, which will release the record on June 2.
A press release explains that the release is "steeped in radical politics and deeply indebted to post-punk's sonic trailblazing and gospel's spiritual bloodletting," adding that "the album imbues neo-modernist hymns with caustic social sentiment and explosive noise."
The write-up adds that Algiers are inspired by a vast array of artists, including Nina Simone, PJ Harvey, Suicide and Public Enemy.
