Previewed in April with the limited edition single, Senses Out Of Control, the new Buzzcocks album, Sonics In The Soul, will be released on the 23rd September via Cherry Red Records. The legendary Manchester punk band need little introduction. Back in 1977, they gave birth to a generation of independent labels with their debut EP, Spiral Scratch. Thereafter, their melodic punk pop proved irresistible, leading to hit singles and three landmark albums. They broke up in 1981 but reunited in 1989 and have been going steady ever since.

Sadly Pete Shelley passed away in 2018, but founder member Steve Diggle has kept the flag flying. During the COVID pandemic Steve, alongside bassist Chris Remington and drummer Danny Farrant, busied themselves recording Sonics In The Soul, their first new studio offering since 2014’s The Way.
