JUSTIN SULLIVAN HITS THE ROAD!
NEW MODEL ARMY frontman JUSTIN SULLIVAN has announced a string of solo dates for the Autumn.
The dates follow on from the May release of Sullivan’s second solo album Surrounded, released eighteen years after the first.
The album was written during the first weeks of last year’s lockdown and recorded mostly by Sullivan at home, with contributions from all current members of NMA as well as various other guests.
“Under the circumstances, it wasn’t particularly surprising that this was the moment to make another solo record and the songs came thick and fast in the first few weeks of the lockdown,” says Sullivan. “There is not so much about ‘what’s happening in the World’. As with ‘Navigating by the Stars’, which was written in the aftermath of 9/11, I wanted to write about other things – some well-known stories, some less well-known, some autobiographical and more a landscape of the imagination than social comment.”
