Black Country, New Road will be hitting the road this September with a headline show at Bowery Ballroom in New York. They’ll then go on tour through North America, performing intimate gigs for their fans across the continent with Black Midi. 

In the announcement, Black Country, New Road stressed that they will be performing “a set of completely new music.” The band has informed us that they won’t be playing any songs from their two previous studio albums, For the First Time and Ants From Up There.

Black Country, New Road is composed of May Kershaw, Charlie Wayne, Luke Mark, Tyler Hyde, Lewis Evans, and Georgia Ellery.

The English rock band had been scheduled to take the North American road this past winter, but it was called off following Isaac Wood’s departure.

Black Country, New Road’s first show without Wood has just taken place in Europe and the UK.
