New Model Army Announce Release Of New Album 'Between Dog And Wolf'

Friday, 19 July 2013 Written by Jon Stickler

New Model Army have announced the release of their new album 'Between Dog and Wolf' on September 23 on Attack Attack Records. 

The self-produced set was finished earlier this year in Los Angeles with Joe Barresi mixing (Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool). The album is the first to feature 26-year-old bass player Ceri Monger, who said: “I have loved New Model Army’s music for many years and am chuffed to be a part of this incredible album.  I think the record is pretty unique and I look forward to hearing what people think when they hear it.”

Founder, lead singer and main songwriter Justin Sullivan explained: “We were always planning to do something a bit different with this album, and it has turned out much more and much better than we could have imagined. Sonically this is the best album we’ve ever made, whilst creatively it has opened lots of new doors.

"The title comes from a medieval French expression for dusk – when it’s hard to distinguish between dog and wolf, friend or foe. That sense of contradiction represents the band very well and there’s something of this sense of transformation in the album. It has been a stormy four years since the release of the last album. With the sudden death of our manager, the loss of our studio in the fire, subsequent theft of remaining equipment and our old bass player Nelson’s departure, we in essence lost everything. We used this to make a new beginning and part of the change was effected with the arrival of Ceri and the refreshing energy and musical influences he brought. We are very excited about the new album and what the future holds for the band."

The album’s artwork is based around a painting by long time artistic collaborator Joolz: ”I always hear the albums being created from the first acoustic strum onwards and it quickly became obvious that this album was going to be different in sound from previous records.  Early on Justin saw some artwork I had designed originally for a tattoo client of mine, an image of Herne the Hunter and the Herlathing, and the primitive tribal paganism of the picture really symbolised to him the heavy pounding drum rhythms and passions that are at the heart of this album."

'Between Dog And Wolf' tracklisting is:

  1. Horsemen
  2. March In September
  3. Seven Times
  4. Did You make it Safe
  5. I Need More Time
  6. Pull The Sun
  7. Lean Back and Fall
  8. Knievel
  9. Storm Clouds
  10. Between Dog and Wolf
  11. Quasr El Nil Bridge
  12. Tomorrow Came
  13. Summer Moors
  14. Ghosts

A documentary film on the history of the band, which has been over four years in the making, is in the final stages of editing and is set for a release in early 2014.  

The band will promote the new album with a run of live dates around the UK this November.
