Throughout this pandemic, wealth disparity across the world has never been so apparent. Without emphasising the morbid details of such injustice, it's no doubt been a hotbed of inspiration for scowling Sleaford Mods frontman Jason Williamson, with the duo announcing new album Spare Ribs

Set for release on 15th January next year via Rough Trade, Williamson talked about the album title's inspiration: "Our lives are expendable under most governments, secondary under a system of monetary rule. Much like the human body can still survive without a full set of ribs, we are all 'spare ribs', preservation for capitalism, through ignorance and remote rule, available for parts." 

Given their well-noted distain towards our Tory government, and their mishandling of the pandemic, it's a prime opportunity for Williamson's bark to be as acerbic as ever.

Accompanying the announcement is new single 'Mork N Mindy' featuring rising Sprechgesang talent Billy Nomates, with the video directed by British director Ben Wheatley (Rebecca, Kill List, High Rise) - see below:
