Watch the video for Young Legionnaire's new song 'Disappear'

Former Bloc Party bassist Gordon Moakes has shared a new song from his band Young Legionnaire . ‘Disappear’ is set to appear on their new LP ‘Zero Worship.’

‘Zero Worship’ is set to be released on 25 November on Superstar Destroyer Records. The band released their debut album ‘Crisis Works’ in 2011.

According to DIY, the LP promises to be about online communities, anonymous protestors and post-truth politics, embodying “a collective hope, in a hopeless time.”

Moakes commented, “It’s supposed to be a human-sounding record, made of human emotions. Of human concerns.” The video gives a glimpse into what the band have been up to for the past few years, showcasing documentary style visuals that see the band appear at festivals.

The band, which also features The Automatic’s Paul Mullan, funded the album through Pledge Music, reaching 115% of their target.

As well as the album, t-shirts and merchandise, the band also offered guitar, drum and bass lessons in return for a pledge. £1,500 got a Pledger an exclusive live performance from the band.
