Underground Bradford cult band New Model Army play Brighton’s Concorde on November 22.

Their 12th studio album Between Dog and Wolf came out in September.

Founder, lead singer and main songwriter Justin Sullivan said: “After a series of purist rock-band-in-a-room albums over the last eight years, we felt it was time to do something a bit different, and sonically this is the best album we’ve ever made. The title comes from a medieval French expression for dusk when it’s hard to distinguish between dog and wolf, friend or foe. That sense of contradiction represents the band very well, and there’s also something of this sense of transformation in the album.”

The band was formed in Bradford in 1980, inspired by northern soul, punk rock and the incendiary atmosphere of the times.
