Ezra Furman has unveiled his new "punk record", ’Twelve Nudes’

Ezra Furman has announced his new album, ’Twelve Nudes’.

“This is our punk record,” says Ezra. “We made it in Oakland, quickly. We drank and smoked. Then we made the loud parts louder. I hurt my voice screaming. This was back in 2018, when things were bad in the world. The songs are naked with nothing to hide.”

The eleven-track record will arrive on 30th August via Bella Union, preceded by lead single ‘Calm Down’.

“Desperate times make for desperate songs,” he explains of the track. “I wrote this in the summer of 2018, a terrible time. It’s the sound of me struggling to admit that I’m not okay with the current state of human civilization, in which bad men crush us into submission. Once you admit how bad it feels to live in a broken society, you can start to resist it, and imagine a better one.”

He’s a handful of UK shows coming up, including:

28 Hay on Wye, UK @ Hay Festival
29 Norwich, UK @ Waterfront
30 Sheffield, UK @ Foundry

02 London, UK @ All Points East Festival

28 Topcliffe, UK @ Deer Shed Festival

The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.

Friendly Fires: Can't wait forever

It’s over eight years since Friendly Fires released their last album, but - after a prolonged period away - they’re finally back on the dancefloor with the shimmering ‘Inflorescent’.
