As driven and focused as ever, New Model Army toured in the UK in Spring 2022 and have filled their calendar for the rest of the year and into 2023 with shows and festivals, at home and abroad, as they make up for lost time. Formed in Bradford in 1980, New Model Army recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary. Their beginnings were inspired by Northern Soul, Punk Rock and the incendiary atmosphere of the times. Since then, they have had a long, creative and eventful journey. They have been massively influential in ‘post-punk’, ‘folk-rock’, ‘political-rock’, ‘goth’, ‘metal’ and all kinds of musical sub-cultures but they have steadfastly refused to belong to any club or style that would limit them.
Even without a specific ‘genre’ audience, New Model Army still have album sales in the millions, have attracted some of the biggest producers on the planet (Glyn Johns, Tom Dowd, Andy Wallace, Bob Clearmountain, Joe Barresi) and have built up an almost religious devotion amongst fans. 

There are very few bands in NMA’s position of being able to record and release what they like when they like, while maintaining a worldwide following and all without making a single artistic or commercial compromise.
