So Algiers formed a crew. Holed up in their native Atlanta, the band—who have built one of the most exciting catalogs and cult followings of recent years—gathered a posse of like-minded artists to create their fourth album, SHOOK. Stacked with guests spanning icons through to future stars, with Algiers as a connecting bridge between worlds and sounds, SHOOK is a lightning rod for an elusive yet universal energy and feeling. A plurality of voices; a spiritual and geographical homecoming; a strategy of communion in a burning world; the story of an end of a relationship; an Atlanta front porch summer party. Ultimately, it's a 17-track set of the most mind-expanding and thrilling music that you are likely to hear anytime soon.

Algiers return with new track ‘Bite Back’, featuring Backxwash and billy woods. Born in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, the six-minute opus sees Algiers frontperson Franklin James Fisher trading verses with contemporary hip hop innovators Backxwash, aka Montreal Zambian-Canadian rapper & producer Ashanti Mutinta, and NYC rapper and Backwood Studioz label founder billy woods, on Black resistance, PsyOps and police oppression.

Multi-instrumentalist/producer Ryan Mahan said: “Shit’s been so real the past few years, we really needed to grow our community of collaborators and make solid the bonds we’ve always felt, particularly with rap heads. And to have the two best rappers around, billy woods AND Backxwash, on the same Algiers-produced track? Pinch me, for real.”

Singer Franklin James Fisher said: "Ryan showed up one day with this beautifully epic instrumental and said, “I’ve got this song and I want to call it ‘Bite Back’. It immediately reminded me why I joined this band and the rest of the song seemed to write itself. It's a classic example of our Lenin-McCartney dynamic.”

Backxwash said: "This feels like the soundtrack to revolutionary struggle. I am honored to participate side by side with an incredible array of artistry.”

billy woods said: "Working with Algiers was a dope experience on many levels, and I was even more excited when they said they were shooting a video. Plus knowing Backxwash was involved, I had to do it.”

‘Bite Back’ is the first new music from Algiers – the four-piece of Franklin James Fisher, Ryan Mahan, Lee Tesche and Matt Tong – since their critically acclaimed third album There Is No Year in 2020. The record was described as “… music of passion and power” (Sunday Times), "electrifying and unpredictable” (The Observer), and “… towering anthems and sinewy grooves” (MOJO).
