UNKLE “War Stories”

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

UNKLE’s War Stories, the group’s third album, drops next month and like its predecessors it will feature a rich line-up of collaborators; many including Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Massive Attack’s 3D have already appeared on previous albums . In typical UNKLE fashion however, fresh unexpected faces are added to the mix including The Cult frontman Ian Astbury who sings for the album’s lead single “Burn My Shadow” as well as “When Things Explode.” Stereogum posted the remarkable video some time ago, but it was when listening to the song as a unique piece when it became substantial for me (though the video is utterly breathtaking as well). Look for a small tour of festival shows this summer with a wider tour (hopefully) in the fall.
