know those moments when a band plays quietly and a whole
audience sings the words? Sometimes, these are the most
emotional experiencesbecause singing together is the oldest
and most basic form of human art, something primal and truly
shared. So in April 2018, New Model Army did a weekend of
just this, not concerts as such, but community singing
events for people who came from all over the world for love
of the bands songs, for the love of singing and for the
feeling of singing together with others. Over the weekend,
forty-nine different songs were sung we hope these tracks
give you a taster of what happened. For much more
comprehensive audio and visual record please contact
Frontman Justin Sullivan states ...
'Singing together is the oldest and most basic form of human
art, perhaps the most continually bonding of all, and goes
all the way back to the very beginning of our history. When
we first came up with the idea for this event, it seemed so
obvious that we were amazed that, to the best of our
knowledge, no band has ever done it before, or at least not
quite in this way, providing full-on backing for a thousand
voices. Of course we didn't really know what would happen or
how best to represent it, so it was mostly guesswork and we
are indebted to the many people who worked on the project
but especially to everyone who came from all over the world,
to sing their hearts out and share something really special.
Whether we do it again remains an open question. For now, we
hope these recordings give a true feeling of what occurred
on those remarkable nights'.
