UK Decay are proud to announce that Monday 22nd May 2013 is the release date of their long awaited new album New Hope For the Dead, with pre-release copies available in record shops across the UK participating in Record Store Day tomorrow (Saturday 20th April).
In fact the band will be playing a short set outside Rough Trade West at around 3pm. Get yourselves down there and join the party with the band. Copies of the album will be available in the Rough Trade Shop on Talbot Road London W11.
A bit about the album: produced by rock legend Chris ‘The Dark Lord’ Tsangerides, the new songs cover a wealth of subjects, from the fracturing nature of society and the twin evils of extremism and bigotry, to the lack of engagement by today’s generation and the attraction of things that ultimately harm us. It’s’ quite literally a sonic assault on the senses – You have been warned!!!!

The album is available on deluxe cd booklet with lyric sheet poster and heavyweight vinyl. A very limited pressing of the vinyl and CD will be in “oil painting varnish” and gives a real textured feel to the cover replicating artist Franko B’s striking paintings. This print effect is a world first for any record sleeve.
Get the album through ukdecay.co.uk, at any good record shop, Amazon and it is also available on I Tunes download.
UK Decay will be be spreading their hot sauce throughout Europe and the UK with live shows very soon.
We are launching our new album New Hope For The Dead with a short live performance at this years “Record Store Day 2013” at the Rough Trade West Stage, Talbot Road, Ladbroke Grove, London on Saturday 20th April at 2.30pm. This is an outdoor all day family event to celebrate the culture of independent record stores.
Our new album New Hope For The Dead is to premier a brand new printing technique on limited pressings of the CD and Vinyl cover artwork. The covers of both formats will feature a 3D “oil painting varnish” effect which will give a real textured feel to the sleeve replicating artist Franko B’s striking paintings. This print effect is a world first for a CD or Vinyl LP.
Both formats of the limited edition will be personally signed by the band. The special limited editions are available now to pre-order from our store and the album will be officially launched in April. A special album launch performance is under wraps and will be announced shortly. Details to follow.
The band were interviewed at the recent Brighton gig by host, David A. Sharman for a Brighton radio station. Dave’s ‘Strange Boutique’ features Punk and Post Punk and is broadcast every Thursdays at 7pm. The interview with ukdecay will be accompanied by excerpts from the new album ‘New Hope From The Dead’. We will update further details, there will be a ‘listen again’.
