Sleaford Mods have announced that they will release new album ‘UK Grim’ in March. Its first single and title track is out now.

“Maybe we are proud of the country”, says vocalist Jason Williamson of the ideas behind his lyrics on the record. “Maybe we are proud to be English. Maybe I’m proud of the horrible grey streets and the shit weather and the stupid fashions I find myself investing in. It’s just that the English we’re proud of being is absolutely nothing like the English the authorities want to try and promote”.

The album sees the duo collaborate with Dry Cleaning’s Florence Shaw on the track ‘Force 10 From Navarone’, as well as Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro from Jane’s Addiction on ‘So Trendy’.

‘UK Grim’ will be released on 10 Mar, with two launch shows set to take place the following week. They will play Rock City in Nottingham on 14 Mar and Pryzm in London on 15 Mar.
