Powered by Audioscrobbler™Black Country, New Road (commonly abbreviated to BCNR or BC,NR) are an English rock band formed in Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom in 2018, consisting of Luke Mark (guitars and backing vocals), Lewis Evans (saxophones, flute and vocals), Georgia Ellery (violin and backing vocals), May Kershaw (keyboards, accordion and vocals), Tyler Hyde (bass and vocals) and Charlie Wayne (drums and backing vocals). The band's first two albums featured lead vocalist Isaac Wood, who left the band in 2022. Their sound has been described as experimental rock, post-punk and post-rock, drawing comparisons to bands such as Slint, Arcade Fire, and black midi.

The founding members of the band originally came from the band Nervous Conditions, alongside vocalist Connor Browne and drummer Jonny Pyke. However, due to sexual assault allegations against Browne, Nervous Conditions disbanded in early 2018 and reformed later that year as Black Country, New Road without Browne and Pyke.

Later adding second (at the time) guitarist Luke Mark, the band gained initial attention through debut singles Athens, France and Sunglasses in 2019. Their debut album, For the first time, released in 2021, received widespread critical acclaim, was nominated for the Mercury Prize and reached No. 4 on the United Kingdom Albums Chart. Four days before the release of their 2022 second album Ants from Up There, Wood left the band, citing mental health struggles. The album received further critical acclaim, reaching No. 3 on the United Kingdom Albums Chart.

The band workshopped new material in the months following Wood's departure, eventually releasing a live album, Live at Bush Hall, in 2023.
