Atlanta's gothy, soulful Algiers will release their new album, The Underside Of Power, on June 23 via Matador. The band, which now includes Bloc Party's Matt Tong on drums, made the record with producers Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Ali Chant, with help from Ben Greenberg (Hubble, Uniform) and mixer Randall Dunn (Sunn O)))). As the album title suggests, the record is inspired by our current sociopolitical times. Says bassist Ryan Mahan:

This album was recorded in a political environment that collapses the late 70s economic crisis and the looming onslaught of arch-conservative neoliberalism, via Thatcher and Reagan, into the late 1930s, a world riven by fascist nationalism and white power fantasies in the US and abroad.

You can watch the video for the LP's title track, directed by Henry Busby & Marcus Tortorici, below.

Algiers will soon be opening for Depeche Mode on string of European dates. After that they'll return to North America for a headlining tour, including a stop at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on July 22. Tickets for the Baby's show are on sale now. All tour dates are listed, along with album art and tracklist, below.
