The Fallare set to release their new album 'RE-MIT' through Cherry Red on May 13th.
As John Peel once so succinctly put it, The Fall are always different, always the same. Returning with their new album - the band's 30th to date - Mark E Smith & Co. seem intent on putting that maxim to the test.
Seemingly at home on Cherry Red, this will be the group's second full length on Cherry Red. Lining up with Mark E Smith on vocals, The Fall are completed by Peter Greenway (lead guitar), Keiron Melling (drums), Elena Poulou (keyboards,vocals) and David Spurr (bass).
Out on May 13th, 'RE-MIT' will be preceded by a new single. Stripped from the album, the one off vinyl pressing will be available in time for Record Store Day (April 20th). As always, the song titles from 'RE-IMT' don't betray any suggestions of the music therein. One track is named 'Sir William Wray' - a quick Wiki check reveals two 17th century politicians of this name, with the young said to have "little minded anything except drinking and folly".
