Algiers announce new album ‘SHOOK,’ share song ft. Zack de la Rocha

Algiers have announced a new album, SHOOK, due February 24 via Matador (pre-order). It includes recent single "Bite Back" (ft. billy woods & Backxwash), as well as a just-released new single with Rage Against The Machine's Zack de la Rocha, plus songs with Big Rube, Samuel T Herring (Future Islands), Mark Cisneros (The Make-Up), Lee Bains III, Jae Matthews (Boy Harsher), LaToya Kent (Mourning [A] BLKstar), and more. "It very much deepens and broadens the world of Algiers," says drummer Matt Tong.

New single "Irreversible Damage" with Zack de la Rocha pulls from industrial synths, wailing psychedelic soul, experimental rap, and more, and it's another stunning, genre-defying taste of this new LP. Vocalist Franklin James Fisher says, "The end of that song is the sound of joy. That's what hope sounds like in 2022 when everything's falling apart." Check it out below.

Algiers are also playing a Brooklyn show on December 15 at National Sawdust. Tickets go on sale Friday (10/28) at 10 AM. After that, they have upcoming Europe dates in 2023, followed by SXSW.
