A Certain Ratio

Norwich Lanes

A CERTAIN RATIO have announced details of a new album, produced by Dan Carey, and an extensive UK tour for spring 2024. It All Comes Down To This, their thirteenth studio album, will be released via Mute on 19 April 2024, and the band’s 2024 tour will kick off on 25 April in Huddersfield, with shows at Edinburgh’s Summerhall, London’s Fabric, and more before a date at Manchester’s New Century on 17 May – full details below.

The new album is the purest distillation of their essential sound ever committed to tape, and the first time they have recorded as just the core trio of principle band members – multi-instrumentalists Jez Kerr, Martin Moscrop and Donald Johnson. The core trio will be joined on bass by Viv Griffin, and the band intend to play the album in its glorious entirety, an endeavour they have never previously attempted, underscoring the unrivalled cohesion that this particular body of work possesses. Many jewels from the past will also adorn the set lists too, and, like ever, reworked and remodelled, the band proud of their past, rather than dependent upon it.
