When John interviewed Mark E Smith late last year, the Fall's leader told him that sessions for the group's next album were progressing well, and that it would be a heavier beast, even a "Greek heavy metal album".. Today, the Cherry Red label got in touch with the Quietus to tell us that they will be releasing whatever it is MES and co come up with later this year: "Cherry Red Records have some exciting news! We’re thrilled to announce that the release of the new FALL album will be coming out on Cherry Red later in the year." There is currently not further information, such as release date or working title, but rest assured we will bring you it as soon as we have it. You can hear a performance of new Fall song 'Greenway' here. When he spoke to us, Smith said that after their record on Domino, he was looking for a label that would let him bang a record out quickly. Looks like he's found a good home.

There's a label left that The Fall haven't signed to yet?

That new song is interesting. It starts as you'd expect then goes into an early 90's grunge / noise rock thing. Didn't expect that!

They'll sign you up for, uh, fifty quid - you'll be making records in a shed...
