New black midi album Cavalcade out now
August 9, 2021
The record is a dynamic, hellacious and inventive follow-up to 2019’s widely-praised debut Schlagenheim. It scales beautiful new heights, pulling widely from a plethora of genres and influences, reaching ever upwards from an already lofty base of early achievements.
black midi – Geordie Greep (guitar, primary vocals), Cameron Picton (bass, vocals), and Morgan Simpson (drums) – envisage Cavalcade’s songs as a parade of larger than life figures strolling seductively past them. These include a cult leader fallen on hard times, an ancient corpse found in a diamond mine and legendary cabaret singer Marlene Dietrich, among others.
Cavalcade is available now on black heavyweight standard vinyl (ex-USA), on a limited edition picture disc, CD, cassette and download, plus it is available stream via all significant services.
A special bonus flexi disc is included with orders of the standard LP from select retailers while stocks last.
Additionally, a set of Cavalcade ringtones have been created by black midi, and these are available to download exclusively with physical orders from Rough Trade Records and black midi webstores. Order now.
The release of Cavalcade is accompanied by a unique competition. A Golden Ticket has been placed into one standard, vinyl edition of the LP sold in the UK, and one in the US (see competition rules).
Whoever is lucky enough to discover either of the tickets will then be able to claim one of three prizes:
* black midi will be the function band for an event of your choice.
* One day in the studio with black midi for a creative collaboration.
* Guestlist spots for two people for all future worldwide black midi headline live shows for 10 years.
