New Model Army are an English rock band. They are widely known for their unwavering commitment to their original vision of music and performance and voicing political views in their lyrics. Therefore they are often labelled as a punk band. Besides punk, they have also been classified as post-punk, folk rock, indie rock, gothic rock, rock noir and even metal amongst others.
New Model Army's earliest material on their debut album Vengeance - The Independent Story (1984) could probably with some justification be regarded as modern punk, albeit more melodic than the works of many of their classic counterparts.
