Listen to new track ‘Chaos Space Marine’ now.

Following the release of their debut album ‘For the first time’ earlier this year, Black Country, New Road have announced that their second album ‘Ants From Up There’ will be released on 4th February on Ninja Tune.

Sharing new track ‘Chaos Space Marine’ alongside the news, frontman Isaac Wood calls it “the best song we’ve ever written.”

“We threw in every idea anyone had with that song,” he adds. “So the making of it was a really fast, whimsical approach - like throwing all the shit at the wall and just letting everything stick.”

Speaking on the forthcoming record, Tyler Hyde notes, “We were just so hyped the whole time. It was such a pleasure to make. I’ve kind of accepted that this might be the best thing that I’m ever part of for the rest of my life. And that’s fine.”
