‘Unbroken’ sounds a lot like New Model Army, but different again.

New Model Army have announced that their sixteenth (!) studio album ‘Unbroken’ will be released in 2024. With a major tour featuring European and UK dates, Het Depot can’t be anything but a stopover.

The band began writing the album in 2021 against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world and their own lives. They decided early on that their first choice to mix the new album would be the legendary Tchad Blake. He accepted, saying, “Not much touches me so sincerely these days. New Model Army hits it for me. Beautifully recorded and produced by the band themselves, mixing this album felt like a gift.” Full of guitars, scorching vocals and with the emphasis on bass and drums that characterises all their work, ‘Unbroken’ sounds a lot like New Model Army, but different again.

Formed in Bradford in 1980, New Model Army are storming through their fifth decade and show no signs of slacking off. They recently released a live double concert album ‘Sinfonia’ in September 2023 – a unique performance recorded with the Sinfonia Leipzig Orchestra at the Tempodrom in Berlin. The new studio album ‘Unbroken’ will be released on 26 January 2024.(source : Depot)

Support act: The Man Up North
In June 2023, THE MAN UP NORTH presented their long-awaited debut album in our sold-out venue.

In fall 2023, Starsailor took them on tour as a support act with performances at De Roma (Antwerp) and Het Paard (The Hague). During this tour they steadily built on their rock solid live reputation.

2024 seems to be the year of The Man Up North. Definitely keep them in your ear. Lose yourself in this late bloomer of stature and swing along to this band’s dark moves.

Meanwhile, Radio Willy included them in their playlist with their new single “When The Ships Part. In the spring, New Model Army will take them on tour in the Netherlands and Belgium and you can see the band, on our stage, live.
