Subversive English post-punk duo Sleaford Mods have announced their next album, English Tapas, arriving in 2017
Sleaford Mods Announce New Album English Tapas
In an announcement, frontman Jason Williamson clarified the album’s title originated from a bar menu spotted by bandmate Andrew Fearn:
"Andrew walked into some random pub and saw “English Tapas” scrawled on the menu board. Underneath this beautiful coupling of words were its components: “Half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie.” It says everything about this fucking place. It’s comedy, it’s make do, it’s ignorant and above all, it’s shit ".
English Tapas is out March 3, 2017 from Rough Trade. Sleaford Mods' latest full-length album was 2015's Key Markets. This October, they discharged the T.C.R. EP. Watch Williamson's also disrespectful declaration of English Tapas beneath, and return to the video for T.C.R's. title track.

Additionally one year from now is Christine Franz's 'Group of Kunst' – the complete Sleaford Mods film. Assuming control two years to record, it diagrams the ascent of the band from back road bar scenes to shake arena's. The film will be discharged in mid 2017. Watch mystery:
“This documentary film is the perfect antidote to those sexy, racy, rocknroll yawns most bands hide behind. We are indeed A Bunch of Kunst”
