"The long awaited new album, titled "Carnival" has now been completed and plans are being finalised. UK and European release date will be September 5th. North America one day later on Sept 6th. Why? because Europe release on a Monday, US on a Tuesday. We will try to keep you up to date with arrangements around the world, but don't forget - if you can't get it locally you will be able to get it from The Shop from the day of release. We will be taking orders from one week before and will ship on Monday 5th.
It will be released (as all recent albums) through the band's own label - Attack Attack Records, and will be distributed by independent companies in each territory. Catalogue number is ATK2311 and it will be on store release schedules (meaning you will be able to pre-order it) from mid July. Precise details of distribution partners will appear soon.
Cover is another fabulous piece from Joolz - previewed on tour postcards earlier in the year and will feature on all tour promotion in the autumn
Mostly written in their studio in Bradford and then arranged by the band in the recording studio, Carnival really conveys the power of the band - pounding rhythms, soaring bass, driving guitars and biting vocals combine in the passionate and dynamic way that only NMA can produce. Justin's lyrics are as poignant as always. Subject matter swings from Britain and Bradford to Africa via religion and relationships, and the poetry is as beautiful as ever. Of course, the CD will be presented with a full lyric booklet.
NEW MODEL ARMY - Summer dates confirmed:
Friday 1st July - Amsterdam. Melkweg-Oude Zaal
Saturday 2nd July - Fusion Festival, Germany - www.fusion-festival.de
Friday 15th July - Forestglade, Austria - www.forestglade.at"

Keith Fay (vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, keyboards) of the Irish folk metal band CRUACHAN has posted the following message on the group's official web site:
"I am delighted to announce that the Father of Folk Metal, Martin Walkyier, will be doing guest vocals for one track on our next album. I am a huge fan of Martin's since early SABBAT and SKYCLAD so for me this is a huge honour."
CRUACHAN recently parted ways with Karmageddon Media. The group's final release for the label will be a reissue of their 1994 "Celtica" demo, featuring unreleased tracks, including "Timmy", which has been performed live at quite a few CRUACHAN shows.
CRUACHAN will embark on the European "Pagan Invasion Tour 2005" beginning in mid-September. A list of the confirmed tour dates can be found at this location.
CRUACHAN are continuing to tour in support of their fourth full-length album, "Pagan", which was released through Karmageddon Media. "Pagan" was recorded and mixed at Radio Na Life Studios in Dublin, Ireland with producer Al Cowen and is the follow-up to 2002's "Folk-Lore". The cover artwork for "Pagan" was created by John Howe, the leading JRR Tolkien illustrator and the conceptual artist from the "Lord of the Rings" movies.
