ALGIERS DEBUT NEW SONG “WE CAN’T BE FOUND”

Algiers debut a new track, “We Can’t Be Found,” and its accompanying video from their highly anticipated forthcoming album There Is No Year today—listen/watch here. The album, the Atlanta via London/NYC four-piece’s third, is out January 17 on Matador Records.

The mesmerizing visual for the sinuous, dub-inflected song, which builds to a soaring, cascading chorus, propelled by the powerhouse vocals of frontman Franklin James Fisher, was directed by Ian Cone. “I always feel the most successful music videos are the ones that are reflective and convey the mood of the song to the listener over everything else,” says guitarist Lee Tesche. “In this instance, we collaborated with the artist Lloyd Benjamin, trying to frame some of his sculpture work in a more abstracted way, referencing the urban dystopian cityscapes found in the German expressionist films of the 1930s. The result aspires to be somewhere in between the unsettling work of Darius Khondji and the set design of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari or Fritz Lang’s Metropolis.”

“We Can’t Be Found” follows the release of “Void,” accompanied by a powerful live video shot in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, as well as “Dispossession,” which The New York Times called “a hardheaded rallying cry.” Its accompanying video was filmed in Paris and Algiers with director Sohail Daulatzai.

In celebration of There Is No Year, the band will perform in several U.S. record stores the week of release including Atlanta’s Criminal RecordsPhiladelphia’s Repo and Brooklyn’s Rough Trade. See below and visit algierstheband.com/instoretour for further details. In February, the band will kick off a European tour, returning stateside in March.

The album was recorded over the past year by childhood friends and Atlanta natives Franklin James FisherRyan Mahan and Lee Tesche, as well as drummer Matt Tong, in New York alongside producers Randall Dunn [Sunn O))), Earth] and Ben Greenberg [Zs, Uniform (as featured on Twin Peaks season 3)]. There Is No Year is titled for author Blake Butler’s novel of the same name, a major inspiration to the band over the course of the album’s making.

“Those aware of the ideals of this outspoken four-piece will find their latest direction on There Is No Year traversing unprecedented ground,” says Butler in his bio for the album. “Coming off two years of nonstop world-touring for their critically acclaimed second album, The Underside of Power—including Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and the Balkans, where they have established a rabid following; an extended stint opening for Depeche Mode in huge stadiums such as the 75,000-capacity Olympiastadion in Berlin; as well as Glastonbury 2019—There is No Year solidifies and expands upon the doom-laden soul of their foundation, toward an even vaster, genre-reformatting sound, one somehow suspended in the amber of ‘a different era,’ as described by guitarist Lee Tesche.”
