Algiers announce new LP with lead single "Dispossession"

29 October 2019, 15:16 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Atlanta's Algiers are back with news of their new LP There Is No Year, alongside dropping the lead single "Dispossession".

Algiers last released new music in August in the form of a track titled "Can the Sub_Bass Speak?", which won't appear on their There Is No Year record.

"Dispossession" is the first single to be shared from Algiers' follow up to 2017's The Underside of Power.

Ryan Mahan of Algiers says of the new single, "The spectre of dispossession is haunting us all. Everywhere the imperial world represses the ghoulish histories that sustain our pasts, presents and futures. Franklin’s lyrics throughout "Dispossession" and our new record, There is No Year, like a neo-Southern Gothic novel with an anti-oppression undercurrent, testify to this modern horror, and chronicle the various ways we all – through living and longing – endure and resist its persistent attacks."

Lead vocalist Franklin James Fisher says of their new album, "What I wanted to do is create a negative space wherein I can exist and engage but at the same time not be so exposed."
