Opening track from A World Lit Only By Fire, their forthcoming album, just given an October release date

Seismic newsflash: Godflesh have put an official release date on their long-awaited new album, A World Lit Only By Fire, their first full LP since Hymns in 2001 and a follow-on from the Decline & Fall EP out earlier this year, as Pitchfork report. It'll be released on Avalanche Recordings, the label run by Justin Broadrick, on October 6 and has been preceded by the immensely satisfying piledriver that is opener 'New Dark Ages', which you can stream above. In the meantime, watch out for further coverage of Mr Broadrick on tQ soon.
