The The are primarily an English post-punk band, yet tend to bleed between genres from pop and rock, to blues and folk, and soul and polemic.
Formed by Matt Johnson in 1979 by an advert in NME, the band released their first single Controversial Subject via 4AD in 1980. 1983 saw their first full length, 'Soul Mining' and released albums every few years following it up until 1999's Naked Self.
The The are back for 2017, having released a single We Can't Stop What's Coming back in May. They have announced two comeback show at the Royal Albert Hall for June 2018, their first concerts for over 16 years.
