Out now: black midi – Hellfire

black midi’s long anticipated album Hellfire is out now! The album includes their new single ‘Sugar/tzu’ released alongside a music video directed by Noel Paul, watch below!

‘Sugar/Tzu’ centres on a futuristic boxing match wherein one of the contenders is assassinated by a young boy. It features the core band plus horns by Kaidi Akinnibi (sax), Joe Bristow (trombone) and Ife Ogunjobi (trumpet), and the voice of boxing announcer Hus Ragip.

Written in isolation in London after the release of last year’s beloved Cavalcade, Hellfire builds on the melodic and harmonic elements of its predecessor, while expanding the brutality and intensity of black midi’s debut, Schlagenheim.
