Returning with their first new music in 34 years, renowned Harlow punk band Newtown Neurotics finally release their brand-new album ‘Cognitive Dissidents’ today via Cadiz Music.

Following an incendiary set at Rebellion Festival last August, the band are primed to take their music and message across the country. With a set that pulls together new material with well-loved landmarks from the past, the Newtown Neurotics will spread their much-needed message of hope, to agitate, educate and organise around the UK.
New album ‘Cognitive Dissidents’, which describes the people who wilfully reject evidence over what they ‘feel’, a play on the term ‘Cognitive Dissonance’, was written and recorded by the band whilst in lockdown. Created during that time when the world tottered and swayed from the moorings that had previously anchored our lives and Coronavirus struck down our loved ones threatening us all, music became, as it always had been, one of the most important things to sustain us through our troubled times.
Always uplifting, never downtrodden, this is punk rock at its finest; this is the Newtown Neurotics music at its finest. In its form and content, it destroys complacency and dogma with reason and logic, and contains melodies that stir the head, the heart, and the soul.
