Skunk Anansie have revealed the title for their 5th studio album: 'Black Traffic'. The band's follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2010's Wonderlustre was recorded in London and co-produced by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Pixies) and mixed by Jeremy Wheatley and Adrian Bushby.
Black Traffic will be the bands first independent release via their own label working in partnership with 100% Records.
"We've wanted to be charge of our own destiny for many years, the doom & gloom merchants may whine about the music industry but we've seen it as a positive chance to re-invent how we work and take more control over our art form. With our new album 'Black Traffic' and new label we are really excited with the future of skunk, this is my personal favorite as an album, even better than 'Wonderlustre' which spawned some great songs. We're back and f**k me we're gonna enjoy every last minute of it!"
"We got back together because we have a strong chemistry," says Skin of the band's return. "We're very proud of our past work, but what drives us is the future."
