out of stock

the Scottish post-punk pioneers triumphantly return with a frantic fifth album that tremors with ideological outrage and pummelling riffs, four decades after their original conception in 1977.

Stepping in for the late Stuart Adamson is his long-time Big Country band mate Bruce Watson. “This music is at the heart of everything our band is about: truth, revolution, loud guitars and a refusal to keep quiet as the establishment tries to smother chances for anyone other than its own.” – Richard Jobson. “In 1977, we were singing songs about what we saw as a world in crisis”. says Jobson today. “Today that message is more relevant than ever. ‘Burning Cities’ is packed full of punk rock protest songs.” “savage and scything guitars, a raging growl of vocal, and short sharp slabs of punk aggression” – uncut.
