I’m delighted to be debuting this one. ‘Black Apple’ is the opening track from The Redneck Manifesto’s new album Friendship, their first proper release since the Seven Stabs EP in four years and their first album in six since I Am Brazil in 2004.
The ten tracks on Friendship were recorded last summer in Black Box Studios in France with Dave Odlum. The band describe the result as “a psychedelic kraut-rock band jamming with The Meters”.
Friendship will be released through The Richter Collective on the March 26th on CD digipak, gatefold vinyl and digital with an M&E-designed sleeve. There is a launch gig on the 27th of March in Tripod. The above image is of a large 5 kilo crystal with three dimensional scans of the band members burnt in to it with a laser (click to enlarge). Apparently, they had it done in Malmo. Epic work lads.
