Back with their first new album in 12 years, a confident and revitalised A Certain Ratio jumped back into the studio following their most successful tour in over 20 years. ACR Loco feels like an accumulation of A Certain Ratio’s DNA from point zero in 1977 through to 2020 and sounds like a band who have effortlessly perfected their craft. This is an album to dance to, cry to, fall in love to and most importantly, to party to.
ACR Loco was made by the core A Certain Ratio members Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson. They are joined by long term partners Tony Quigley, Denise Johnson and Matt Steele, plus special guests Sink Ya Teeth’s Maria Uzor and Gemma Cullingford, Factory Floor’s Gabe Gurnsey and Manchester luminaries Mike Joyce and Eric Random.
The first pressing of the vinyl will be available on one of four colors: White, Blue, Red, Turquoise. Each color is of varying rarity and will be randomly packed with no external cue as to which color is available within the package. They will all come packaged in foil blocked sleeve designed by Trevor Johnson and include a high definition audio download. The LP will be released on 10/2, one week after the album release on 9/25.
