Further details on the forthcoming music have not been confirmed as yet. The band did release a new track last year, however – the anti-Trump song ‘Demagogue’. It included the lyric: “Those pussy-grabbing fingers won’t let go of me now.”
Guitarist Nick McCarthy left the band last year, citing family commitments as the reason behind his departure. A new-look line-up of the band was revealed earlier this year ahead of a series of performances in the US.
Dino Bardot and Julian Corrie joined original members Kapranos, bassist Bob Hardy and drummer Paul Thomson. Bardot was a member of the indie-rock trio 1990s, while Corrie has produced electronic music under the name Miaoux Miaoux in recent years.
