ALGIERS PLAY “DISPOSSESSION” ON THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT

NEW ALBUM THERE IS NO YEAR OUT NOW ON MATADOR RECORDS

EUROPEAN TOUR KICKS OFF TONIGHT, RETURN TO NORTH AMERICA NEXT MONTH

“...the music is as electrifying, unpredictable and chaotic as ever…” —The Guardian

“Rage, desperation and hope against the odds drive ‘Dispossession,’ a hardheaded rallying cry…” —The New York Times

“There Is No Year might be the best album of 2020…” —Afropunk

“The riffs are heavier, the grooves cheekier, the politics clearer and more righteous than ever before…” —The Line of Best Fit

In celebration of the release of their new album There Is No Year, Atlanta via London/NYC four-piece Algiers appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last night to perform “Dispossession,” watch here.

There Is No Year is out now on Matador Records. Get the album, which features singles “We Can’t Be Found,” “Void,” and the studio version of “Dispossession,” here. The band also recently shared a stripped down version of “Dispossession” here.

Fresh from a slew of U.S. in-store performances, the band kicks off a European tour tonight, returning stateside in March to play D.C.’s Black Cat, Los Angeles The Echo, Brooklyn’s St. Vitus and more. See below and visit algierstheband.com/instoretour for further details.

The album was recorded over the past year by childhood friends and Atlanta natives Franklin James Fisher, Ryan Mahan and Lee Tesche, as well as drummer Matt Tong, in New York alongside producers Randall Dunn [Sunn O))), Earth] and Ben Greenberg [Zs, Uniform (as featured on Twin Peaks season 3)]. There Is No Year is titled for author Blake Butler’s novel of the same name, a major inspiration to the band over the course of the album’s making.

“Those aware of the ideals of this outspoken four-piece will find their latest direction on There Is No Year traversing unprecedented ground,” says Butler in his bio for the album. “Coming off two years of nonstop world-touring for their critically acclaimed second album, The Underside of Power—including Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and the Balkans, where they have established a rabid following; an extended stint opening for Depeche Mode in huge stadiums such as the 75,000-capacity Olympiastadion in Berlin; as well as Glastonbury 2019—There is No Year solidifies and expands upon the doom-laden soul of their foundation, toward an even vaster, genre-reformatting sound, one somehow suspended in the amber of ‘a different era,’ as described by guitarist Lee Tesche.” 

Formed in London in 2012 by Fisher, Mahan and Tesche, friends from Atlanta who had been playing music together since childhood, the band recruited drummer Matt Tong (ex-Bloc Party) and signed to Matador in 2014. Since, they have toured relentlessly worldwide and released two massively acclaimed albums, 2015’s self titled and their breakthrough 2017 sophomore LP The Underside of Power.
