Algiers return in 2020 with their third album ‘There Is No Year’, which will be released January 17th on Matador Records. ‘There is No Year’ solidifies and expands upon the doom-laden soul of their foundation, toward an even more epic, genre-reformatting sound, one somehow suspended in the amber of “a different era,” as described by guitarist Lee Tesche.

The Dinked Edition comes in a mirrorboard sleeve with reversed colours. Pressed on gold coloured vinyl and includes exclusive bonus 7” featuring ‘Void’ and ‘Can The Sub_Bass Speak?’.

Algiers new album ‘There Is No Year’ is here and will be hitting the racks this Friday. There is a small amount of the incredible Dinked Edition version.

Algiers’ new album, “There Is No Year” released by Matador Records on January 17th, 2020

Algiers have had a hell of a couple of years. In 2015, they dropped a fiercely original debut album that found an uncharted sweet spot between industrial rhythm and noise, post-punk guitar skreeeee, and the smoldering intensity of Southern black gospel.

Wide acclaim, a few videos, and heavy touring followed, and the band’s core trio of singer/guitarist Franklin Fisher, bassist/synthesist Ryan Mahan, and guitarist Lee Tesche was augmented by touring (and now permanent) drummer Matt Tong, formerly of Bloc Party. In between all their rock labors, they wrote a second album, The Underside of Power, and WOW.

Though the new album isn’t due until June 23rd, the band released the first video from The Underside of Power —and it’s the album’s title track.
