The brand-new studio album Unbroken, released on January 26th, 2024, on earMUSIC, is the modern face of New Model Army, bringing together both their old school energy and their contemporary sophistication to create one of the finest albums of their long career. It was written and recorded over quite a long period of time, with the process interrupted by both the delayed 40th Anniversary shows and the recent Sinfonia live orchestral project.
A very New Model Army album, full of guitars but with the emphasis on the rhythmic power of bass and drums which characterizes all the band’s work, with Unbroken, the band continue to push the boundaries of their signature sound while staying true to their heart. The subjects and moods are variable, creating a diverse collection of tracks which touch on topics ranging from social and political commentary to deeply personal reflections.
“We were writing and recording ideas in our own studio from mid-2021 and had already decided early on that our number one choice to mix it would be the legendary Tchad Blake. The album sounds like us, but different again, and it has been beautifully mixed – full-on, dynamic and musical,” the band have revealed.
“Not much hits me as genuine these days, but New Model Army hits it for me. Wonderfully recorded and produced by themselves, mixing this album felt like a gift. Here’s hoping lots of people feel the same way about listening to it.” - Tchad Blake
Unbroken will be released on CD Hardcover Mediabook, Heavyweight Black LP Gatefold, Ltd. Heavyweight Red LP Gatefold and on Digital.
