Published Jun 30, 2020A Certain Ratio are returning with their first new album in over a decade. Called ACR Loco, the record by the cult U.K. post-punk group arrives on September 25 via Mute. Right now, though, you can hear the lead-off single "Always in Love."
ACR Loco follows the band's Mind Made Up, which arrived way back in 2008. The new album was recorded by the core ACR lineup of Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson, with contributions from their live lineup players Tony Quigley, Denise Johnson and Matt Steele.
Additional guests include Sink Ya Teeth's Maria Uzor and Gemma Cullingford and Gabe Gurnsey (Factory Floor), as well as Mike Joyce and Eric Random.
"This album is a culmination of everything we've ever done," explained Kerr in a statement.
Moscrop added, "Digging into the past for the boxset [2019's ACR:BOX] must have rubbed off on us and influenced the current album. I think it helped spark up our imagination. It allowed us to work in some of the past as we move forward into the future."
