The band’s seventeenth studio album sees the definitive post-punk group continue a run of stellar releases, showcasing a band on peak form 40 years into their hugely influential career.

The first glimpse of ‘Mind Hive’ comes with lead single “Cactused” – one of ‘Mind Hive’s resoundingly pop moments. Newman’s vocal is wide eyed and wired, with Lewis’ smooth backing vocals thickening the plot. Simms’ effects-heavy guitar work creates a bright web of noise, with the song’s stop/start moments providing a series of precise energy bursts.

The accompanying video uses footage shot by Graham Duff for the forthcoming documentary, ‘People In A Film’ – more info here.
