Bicep have announced a new album.
The Irish live and DJ duo, who released their first music since 2018 earlier this year with new track 'Atlas', have revealed that their new album, 'Isles', will land on Ninja Tune in January next year.

His new project will be released with it's 'ClubFront' b-side as a 12" single, out on Friday 22nd November.
On his latest release, Vynehall says:
Denis Sulta has shared two singles from his forthcoming EP, 'Aye Spoake Te Sumwuhn & They Listenhd'.
Incoming via Ninja Tune on the 8th November, the 44-minute EP is Sulta's emotive ode to "the memories of the people and places that have shaped a deeply personal and at times difficult journey to where he is now." After releasing the first single, 'Matthew Keeps Me Pirrie', last month, the Glaswegian producer has shared two brand new tracks.
