nine black alps return with their fourth studio album 'sirens' through leeds label brew records (kong, hawk eyes, blacklisters, castrovalva, humanfly). with core members sam forrest (vocals, guitar), david jones (guitar), james galley (drums, vocals) and new bass player karl astbury, the band have retained their distinctive and energetic sludge-rock sound albeit with a tighter and more dynamic style. nine black alps regrouped in spring 2011 to record their fourth album 'sirens'. the album was entirely self-produced and mixed by the band in yorkshire and offers the clearest vision of nine black alps yet. 'sirens' is the sound of a band that has grown and matured but still contains all the hallmarks of a classic nine black alps record which saw the likes of the nme hail their music as, 'a fantasy fairyland of college rock and surf-pop' while kerrang nominated them for the 'best new band award' in 2005.
