Experimental rock band Algiers released their sophomore album The Underside of Power via Matador Records on June 23, and they visit Black Cat in DC with their powerful mix of post-punk and gospel music on Monday, July 24.

“This album was recorded in a political environment that collapses the late ’70s economic crisis and the looming onslaught of arch-conservative neoliberalism, via Thatcher and Reagan, into the late 1930s, a world riven by fascist nationalism and white power fantasies in the US and abroad,” said bassist Ryan Mahan. To combat “this rising tide of sinister politics,” Algiers have recorded their second album to give voice to the resulting frustration and despair.
