The New Song and Dance is the debut album of dance-punk/post-punk revival band Radio 4

The album was released under low-budget circumstances in 2000, making for a messy but angry and fast sound. The New Song and Dance became mildly successful with critics, who likened the album's sound to that of The Clash.[1]
