The Hot Press Newsdesk, 31 Oct 2012
There's been a flurry of activity from John Robb-led UK punks Goldblade this year and it turns out it's all been building up to an album release. The band have now announced the means for just that – they've put pen to paper on a new deal with Southern Records.
Long time Music Show favourite Robb had this to say about the deal:
"At last we have a new album and a new home. There is something perfect about Goldblade being on Southern Records with it's great catalogue of punk rock with an intelligence and a meaning.
"We bought all those Crass and Rudimentary Peni Records, as well as the On U Sound System and Fugazi and just about every band that understood the punk rock spirit and carried the flag for underground music in the decades after the punk rock big bang. It was great to record the album at Southern studios with its long history of brilliant sounding records from Crass to Jesus And Mary Chain to Shellac and be part of that noisy culture that is the real soundtrack to independent culture and the real alternative music."
Expect the follow-up to 2008's Mutiny to drop sometime in the spring.
