The Fall

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.

Due out May 13 in the U.K. on Cherry Red Records, the new album features Smith and bandmates Peter Greenway, Keiron Melling, Elena Poulou and David Spurr. Cherry Red will preview the album with a U.K. Record Store Day 7-inch featuring album tracks “Sir William Wray,” “Hittite Man” and “Jetplane.”

The album is The Fall’s first since 2011’s Ersatz G.B., and second for Cherry Red.

The band, according to The Quietus, will follow up the release of the new record with a U.K. tour that begins May 7 in Glasgow and wraps up a month later, on June 8, with an appearance at the Long Division Festival in Wakefield (see full dates below).
