    Black Country, New Road shared their concert film Live at Bush Hall last month, and the band has now announced the album counterpart of the same name, arriving digitally March 24th.

    The compilation captures the British six-piece during a three-night stint in London last December and features the official debut recordings of all-new material written after the group’s 2022 sophomore album, Ants From Up There, and the sudden departure of frontman Isaac Wood. With several members now sharing lead vocal duties, the new setlist offers a full view at the band’s future-in-progress.

    “It’s about capturing the moment,” singer-saxophonist Lewis Evans shared in a statement. “A little time capsule of these eight months that we’ve had playing these songs on the road.” Meanwhile, pianist May Kershaw added that the band “didn’t want to do a studio album” and “wrote the new tracks specifically to perform live.”


    Drummer Charlie Wayne explains: “We want the focal point to be this film. We’ve put a lot of effort into making it feel like you’re watching a live gig. It’s not an album in our eyes, it’s a live performance.” Pre-orders for physical LPs are ongoing, with release dates slated for May 26th in the US and April 28th in the UK.

    Black Country, New Road have also unveiled a new live date at London’s 02 Shepherds Bush Empire on October 10th, their largest solo headline show to date. Tickets go up for grabs on Friday, March 24th at 10:00 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster. The show serves as a finale for the band’s previously-announced Japan and Europe 2023 dates, including festival appearances at Primavera SoundGlastonbury, THING 2023, and more.
