Our new album A Lesson In Repression is now available to buy digitally or physically. We have loads of solid options you can have, including A2 screenprints, illustrated bound lyric books, CDs, cassettes… your choice. Have a look at our Bandcamp page and see if there’s a bundle that takes your fancy.
Here are a couple of nice quotes, just in case you don’t believe us when we tell you the album’s good:
“Deliciously self-aware, the record forces its fingers around the throats of our preconceptions, at least temporarily quenching the thirst for that much-needed full-blown punk rock revival- ★★★★” -the Skinny
“a sharply poetic mixture of visceral music and vivid lyrics” -Clash
“Black International are a powerful, intelligent new species of band that we’ll likely be bowing down to for a long time once they take over the planet, and that’s absolutely fine with me.” -State Magazine
We’ll be launching the album in Edinburgh on the 21st of November at the historic Kirk o’ Field Parish Church, with a special performance of the album in full with guest musicians Paul McArthur (Thin Privilege / Salò / Damn Teeth), Niall Sinclair (Urvanovic / Billy Ray Osiris) and Robbie Smith (BRITNEY / Ultimate Slaymaster). Also on the bill are Edinburgh’s favourite electro-kraut heart-throbs Birdhead. It’s a bring-your-own-bottle event, and we won’t be charging a corkage fee or anything, but please don’t bring any spirits. Beer, wine and cider are fine though. Tickets are available from Brown Paper Tickets here (there’s a small booking fee, but you’ll save £1 on the price if you book in advance). There’s a Facebook event page here which you can add your name to, or tell your friends about, whatever you like.
