Sleaford Mods released their seventh album ‘UK Grim’ earlier this year. Speaking to NME about it, vocalist Jason Williamson said: ”‘UK Grim’ might strike a chord with people at their wit’s end, with people having to suffer these fucking idiots.”

“The album was written during the non-event which was COVID and I’ve just got increasingly angrier with myself and everyone else,” he continued. “The energy of it is a lot more aggressive.”

Meanwhile, The Selecter are set to support Blur at Wembley Stadium on July 9. Announcing the news, Blur wrote: “From the 2 Tone ska revival to the present day, The Selecter has been a driving force in British music for over four decades.


“Their infectious mix of ska, punk, and new wave influences and politically charged lyrics have inspired countless musicians. The Selecter has continued to tour and release new music, most recently with their phenomenal album, ‘Daylight’.” Tickets are available here.
