Algiers have announced their third album, 'There Is No Year'

Algiers have announced their third album.

'There Is No Year' will be released on 17th January via Matador Records, preceded by lead single and video 'Dispossession', and accompanied by a February tour.

“The specter of dispossession is haunting us all,” says multi-instrumentalist Ryan Mahan. “Everywhere the imperial world represses the ghoulish histories that sustain our pasts, presents and futures. Franklin’s lyrics throughout ‘Dispossession’ and on our new record, There is No Year, like a neo-Southern Gothic novel with an anti-oppression undercurrent, testify to this modern horror, and chronicle the various ways we all—through living and longing—endure and resist its persistent attacks.”

“Amidst the urgency of now, ‘Dispossession’ sounds the warning about the permanent war against oblivion,” says director Sohail Daulatzai. “The video opens with the sites of colonial massacres of Algerians, moves to the repressive spaces of the banlieues, and includes shots of the Jardin d’Agronomie Tropicale—a park that celebrates the glories of empire. But this is not just about the past or Paris, it is everywhere that the banner of the West is waved, where monuments to our ruin are raised - reminders of the ongoing violence, of the tensions between dream and its discontents, past and present, them and us. I wanted to give visual resonance to these tensions, to our dignified stances amidst the madness, and to our memories of a future foretold.”

The album's track listing reads:

1. There Is No Year
2. Dispossession
3. Hour of the Furnaces
4. Losing is Ours
5. Unoccupied
6. Chaka
7. Wait for The Sound
8. Repeating Night
9. We Can't Be Found
10. Nothing Bloomed
