New Model Army announce details of new albumNEW MODEL ARMY
‘Between Dog and Wolf’
New Album Details
New Model Army are excited to announce the release of their much heralded new album “Between Dog and Wolf” on September 23rd on Attack Attack Records via a new deal with Essential Music and Marketing in UK and Ireland. The self-produced set was finished earlier this year in Los Angeles with Joe Barresi mixing (Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool). The record marks a major evolution in their sound.
Entitled “Between Dog and Wolf”, the album is filled with multi-layered drums and atmospheric musical textures while sacrificing none of the band’s famous passion and song-writing skills. It is arguably their most accomplished album to date.  The album is the first to feature 26 year old new bass player Ceri Monger whose presence has added to the band’s creative and live resurgence.
Says founder, lead singer and main songwriter Justin Sullivan:
“We were always planning to do something a bit different with this album, and it has turned out much more and much better than we could have imagined. Sonically this is the best album we’ve ever made, whilst creatively it has opened lots of new doors. The title comes from a medieval French expression for dusk – when it’s hard to distinguish between dog and wolf, friend or foe. That sense of contradiction represents the band very well and there’s something of this sense of transformation in the album. It has been a stormy four years since the release of the last album. With the sudden death of our manager, the loss of our studio in the fire, subsequent theft of remaining equipment and our old bass player Nelson’s departure, we in essence lost everything. We used this to make a new beginning and part of the change was effected with the arrival of Ceri and the refreshing energy and musical influences he brought.  We are very excited about the new album and what the future holds for the band.
Said Ceri  “I have loved New Model Army’s music for many years and am chuffed to be a part of this incredible album.  I think the record is pretty unique and I look forward to hearing what people think when they hear it.”
The album’s stunning artwork is based around a painting by long time artistic collaborator Joolz.
Said Joolz, ”I always hear the albums being created from the first acoustic strum onwards and it quickly became obvious that this album was going to be different in sound from previous records.  Early on Justin saw some artwork I had designed originally for a tattoo client of mine, an image of Herne the Hunter and the Herlathing, and the primitive tribal paganism of the picture really symbolised to him the heavy pounding drum rhythms and passions that are at the heart of this album.
