New Album ‘Dark Matters’-pre-order now!

We are pleased to announce that the band’s eighteenth studio album Dark Matters will be released on 10th September 2021 and it is now available to pre-order through The Stranglers Official Store here. The album contains 11 songs which were recorded over the course of two years in the band’s Somerset HQ. The album was completed remotely during the Covid lockdown in spring this year with Louie Nicastro behind the controls. Dark Matters will be available on CD, 180gm black vinyl, limited red/black smoke coloured 180gm vinyl & even a limited cassette as well as 25 special signed white label vinyl test pressings.

All pre-orders for the album from The Stranglers Official Store, on any format, will receive an exclusive CD entitled Dave Greenfield-A Tribute. This bonus CD, featuring 8 unreleased live recordings, was selected by the surviving members with a view to celebrating Dave’s unique talent. It includes two of the new album tracks performed with Dave, live versions of four Stranglers’ songs that feature Dave’s distinctive vocals and one of the last ever recordings of the band from their 2019 Japanese tour.

The first single from the album And If You Should See Dave… can be heard here and will be available to stream from 14th May. It’s a poignant and heartfelt tribute to their dearly departed band member. We will bring you more exciting news about the album’s release soon…
