Mark E. Smith’s iconic and ever-morphing post-punk act The Fall next month will release a six-song EP of new material on CD and 10-inch vinyl that Cherry Red Records says is intended as “a bridging point” between the band’s last album Re-Mit and the its next record, due to be released by the label in 2014.
Tag: Ersatz G.B.
Mark E. Smith’s iconic post-punk act The Fall returns next month with ‘Re-Mit,’ the band’s 30th studio album in 37 years — a 12-track collection that will be preceded by a 7-inch single on Record Store Day and followed by a nine-date tour of the U.K. in May and early June.
This week’s new releases include ‘Ersatz G.B.,’ the 29th studio album from The Fall, plus new best-ofs from R.E.M. (‘Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage’) and Wall of Voodoo (‘Lost Weekend’), and expanded reissue of Cabaret Voltaire’s ‘Johnny YesNo’ soundtrack and Curt Smith’s solo effort ‘Mayfield.’
The Fall will release their 29th studio album in 35 years — a 10-track collection called ‘Ersatz G.B.’ — in November, when they’ll also embark on an nine-date tour of their native U.K. to mark the record’s arrival.
