The unstoppable Mark E. Smith returns this summer with his 32nd studio album under The Fall moniker, an 11-track collection called New Facts Emerge that features a slightly stripped-down lineup of the legendary and oft-changing Manchester band.
Cherry Red Records today announced the album, co-produced by Smith and drummer Kieron Melling, will be released July 28 on CD and limited-edition vinyl.
The album features the lineup of Smith, Melling, guitarist Peter Greenway and bassist Dave Spurr; keyboardist Elena Poulou, who had been in The Fall since the early 2000s, is no longer in the band.
The current line-up is as follows: Mark E. Smith (lead vocals); Peter Greenway (guitar, synth, backing vocals); Dave Spurr (bass, Mellotron, backing vocals); Kieron Melling (drums).
The new album is The Fall’s first since 2015’s Sub-Lingual Tablet. See full tracklist below.
