Algiers are releasing a new album, There Is No Year, on January 17, 2020 via Matador. Now they have shared another song from it, "Void." They have also announced some American in-store performances for January. Check out the video and in-store dates below.

Previously Algiers shared There Is No Year's first single, "Dispossession," via a video for the track. It was one of our Songs of the Week.

Algiers' last album was 2017's The Underside of Power. In August they shared a new song, "Can The Sub_Bass Speak?" That song was one of our Songs of the Week, but isn't included on the new album.

Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth) and Ben Greenberg (Zs, Uniform) produced the album, which was recorded in New York. The band features childhood friends and Atlanta natives Franklin James Fisher, Ryan Mahan, and Lee Tesche, as well as drummer Matt Tong (formerly of Bloc Party).

A previous press release described the album this way: "There Is No Year encompasses future-minded post-punk R&B from the trapped heart of ATL, where they began; to industrial soundscapes à la 4AD-era Scott Walker or Iggy and Bowie's Berlin period; to something like the synthetic son of Marvin Gaye and Fever Ray."
