20 May 2024, 11:45 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

Sleaford Mods’ breakthrough album, Divide and Exit, is set to be reissued on 26 July to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

The band will also stage a tour celebrating the album this autumn, playing a series of intimate gigs at the kind of grassroots venues they were performing at when the album was first released.

Fully remastered, and with initial vinyl copies featuring a special new sleeve designed by the duos friend and collaborator British artist Cold War Steve, the new edition of Divide and Exit will feature sleeve notes written by frontman Williamson, while The Wires 2014 interview with the band, conducted by Mark Fisher, will also be reprinted in full. A limited-edition flexi disc, with featuring the never previously released "Git Some Balls" and artwork by Jason Williamson, will also be included with initial editions.

Where our previous album Austerity Dogs barked a directionless yet solid form of anger, Divide and Exit then carried this basic form of class consciousness,” says Williamson of the vision behind the record, both musically and lyrically. "After the release of Austerity Dogs we realised we had seemingly created a formula,” he adds.Andrew just took the formula and ran with it and his music started to sound much more compact and urgent.”

A vivid snapshot of UK grimness which remains a cornerstone of the duos live set, the newly remastered single, "Tied Up In Nottz" is accompanied by a restored version of the songs 2014 video featuring the pair riding around their native Nottingham on a borrowedbus.

Tickets for the intimate shows go on sale on this week. An artist pre-sale for those signed up to the mailing list at will take place on Wednesday (22 May) at 10am (BST) before tickets go on general sale this Friday (24 May).
