Seminal Britrock band the Verve release their brand new album, Forth, their first in 11 years, Monday in the UK. The Verve are probably best known, at least, internationally, for their monster hit “Bittersweet Symphony”, and the resulting sampling lawsuit from the Rolling Stones.
Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential bands in British music, this is the fourth album by Wigan’s The Verve, and their first full set of original material since the career defining, 1997 commercial breakthrough, ‘Urban Hymns’. ‘Forth’ is a strong and varied release, combiningguitarist Nick McCabe’s sonic experiments with frontman Richard Ashcroft’s Britpop-esque balladry. The anthemic single,’Love Is Noise’ is included.
