Sleaford Mods Announce New Album English Tapas

Subversive English post-punk duo Sleaford Mods have announced their next album, English Tapas, arriving in 2017. In a statement, frontman Jason Williamson explained the album’s title came from a pub menu spotted by bandmate Andrew Fearn:

Andrew walked into some random pub and saw “English Tapas” scrawled on the menu board. Underneath this beautiful coupling of words were its components: “Half a scotch egg, cup of chips, pickle and a mini pork pie.” It says everything about this fucking place. It’s comedy, it’s make do, it’s ignorant and above all, it’s shit.

English Tapas is out March 3, 2017 from Rough Trade. Sleaford Mods’ most recent full-length album was 2015’s Key Markets. This October, they released the T.C.R. EP. Watch Williamson’s similarly profane announcement of English Tapas below, and revisit the video for T.C.R.‘s title track.
