Black Midi have announced their third album, ‘Hellfire’.
Set for release via Rough Trade Records on 15th July, the news comes alongside a new track, ‘Welcome To Hell’.
Following up on 2021’s ‘Cavalcade’, guitarist and vocalist Geordie Greep explains: “If ‘Cavalcade’ was a drama, ‘Hellfire’ is like an epic action film.”
“Almost everyone depicted is a kind of scumbag. Almost everything I write is from a true thing, something I experienced and exaggerated and wrote down. I don’t believe in Hell, but all that old world folly is great for songs, I’ve always loved movies and anything else with a depiction of Hell. Dante’s Inferno. When Homer goes to Hell in The Simpsons. There’s a robot Hell in Futurama. Isaac Bashevis Singer, a Jewish writer who portrays a Satan interfering in people’s lives. There’s loads!”
