To celebrate the release of their upcoming new album Spare Ribs, Nottingham-based duo Sleaford Mods have announced their latest global live event – The Demise of Planet X – which will be streamed live from Village Underground on January 10th at 9PM AEDT. The show follows their much-lauded livestream from the basement of London’s 100 Club in September. Tickets are available HERE.
The Demise of Planet X global live stream is announced as the band are poised to blow the cobwebs off life and unleash some much-needed wit and charm upon us with the release of their astonishing sixth studio album, entitled Spare Ribs, out via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records on January 15th 2021.
The polemical Jason Williamson and dexterous producer Andrew Fearn kick against the pricks with unrivalled bite, railing against hypocrisy, inequality and apathy with their inimitable, scabrous sense of humour. Featuring Amy Taylor of Melbourne punks Amyl and the Sniffers and the British newcomer Billy Nomates, Spare Ribs finds the duo charged with ire at the UK Government’s sense of entitlement, epitomised by its devil-may-care approach to the coronavirus crisis.
“After the livestream in September at the 100 Club, it was clear that the connection to the audience, although through a screen, was still as strong. We love playing. We love the songs we play. It’s never a problem to perform and after a year of not performing it’s a fucking joy to appear on your screens” says Williamson.
The global live broadcast from the iconic Village Underground will take fans on a raucous ride through their acclaimed back catalogue and preview tracks from Spare Ribs, including recent singles ‘Mork n Mindy’ and ‘Shortcummings’.
Spare Ribsfollows Sleaford Mods’career-spanning retrospective album All That Glue and their sold-out debut Australian tour in March this year, which included standout performances at Golden Plains Festival, WOMADadelaide, Farmer & The Owl and more.
