Sleaford Mods have announced their new album English Tapas, to be released Friday 3rd March 2017. The album was recorded at Steve Mackey’s (Pulp) West Heath Garage studios in London.
English Tapas will be available on a limited pressing of red vinyl, CD, DL and very limited edition cassette (150 only). The first 1000 vinyl pre-orders also include a bonus one sided 7” of exclusive track ‘Big Trouble In Little Costa,’ gigography booklet containing unseen photos by Simon Parfrement and commentary by Sleaford Mods, a packet of kingsize rizlas and a beermat. The tape also includes ‘Sleaford Mods Live at Dismaland 2015’ with a download code of the live show only.
Jason Williamson discusses English Tapas: “Andrew walked into some random pub and saw “English Tapas” scrawled on the menu board. Underneath this beautiful coupling of words were it’s 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.”

Also to be released next year is Christine Franz’s Bunch of Kunst – the definitive Sleaford Mods film. Taking over two years to record, it charts the rise of the band from back street pub venues to rock arenas. The film will be released in early 2017. Watch the teaser here.
“This documentary film is the perfect antidote to those sexy, racy, rocknroll yawns most bands hide behind. We are indeed A Bunch of Kunst.” – Jason Williamson
