Mark "Barney" Greenway recently told Rock Sound magazine about "Time Waits For No Slave", "Each album appears to have got progressively better and better. There was no great master plan, really. We're just a very organic band, very spontaneous, and we just try to write the best songs possible. If there is anything in the back of our minds, then I think it's that we always try to make each album differ without losing the thread of what should be there and I think we've done that with this album."

The band will play a one-off hometown show on January 31. The gig, set to take place at the Asylum in Hockley, Birmingham, will see NAPALM performing "Time Waits For No Slave" in its entirety for the first and only time.
