London-based four-piece Italia 90 have shared details of their debut album, Living Human Treasure.

Set for release early next year, the 11-track album features studio versions of a number of long-time live staples of the band's sets, as well as newer material. "We consciously drew on elements from other genres, like new wave, goth rock, post-hardcore, jazz, jungle and ranchera that have inspired us but which we hadn't incorporated into our music previously," they said in a collective statement.

Alongside the album's announcement, the band have shared a video for lead track 'Leisure Activities', which you can watch above. The track is described by the band as "a response to the tendency of countless modern bands who identify as, or are described as political, when their commentary amounts to little more than mundane descriptions of British life or sneering caricatures of an idle working class entirely of their invention."

Brace Yourself will release Living Human Treasure on January 20, 2023.
