(update: exclusive album review HERE)

Mark E Smith has recently said that he didn;t think highly of the band's previous album, 2011's 'Ersatz GB'. "I don't like any of them. You've got to be honest for the fans." He added: "I would say five songs on the last record were bad, but I will make it up... 'Re-Mit' is going to terrify people. It's quite horrible. The Fall have had enough and we're coming for you."
The band also hit the road for a UK tour in April and May.
