‘Everything You Know Is Wrong’ sees the band launching into a statement of intent and the return of Shaun Ryder’s lyrical wit, which this time sees him taking sharp aim at Donald Trump.
Ryder and Kermit have teamed up with producer Youth (Martin Glover) on this album, who has previously worked with the likes of The Verve, U2, Primal Scream, Guns N’ Roses, Pink Floyd and Depeche Mode to name but a few.
Commenting on the new album, Shaun Ryder says, “We had a great time making the album – we wrote, recorded and mixed it within four weeks.” Kermit adds that the album is, “Me and Shaun eyeball to eyeball.”
Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and iconic bands of the last twenty years, Black Grape have had 4 Top 10 singles and their debut album ‘It’s Great When You’re Straight… Yeah’ shot straight to No.1 in the UK charts upon its release in 1995 and went Platinum. Follow up album ‘Stupid Stupid Stupid’ went Gold in 1997.
