New album, new tour!
Legendary post-punk act Gang of Four will release a new album, What Happens Next, which has nothing to do with Bravo or Andy Cohen, on February 24, 2015 on Metropolis Records in the U.S.
The new platter features collaborations with Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Robbie Furze from The Big Pink, Gail Ann Dorsey, German superstar Herbert Grönemeyer and Japanese superstar Hotei.
Wow, wow, wow and wow! That's quite a set of collaborators, each of which we are stoked about.
This is also the first album without vocalist Jon King, so the title What Happens Next refers to both the outside world and the band itself: an emphatic commitment to the future.
"The focus is more on universal issues, like how individuals behave in certain ways or how our world is constructed, than local issues or current affairs," says founding guitarist and songwriter Andy Gill. "Gang of Four is anything but parochial."
When King left the project, a reinvigorated Gill seized the opportunity to re-imagine Gang of Four from the ground up. The new album is an unexpected twist that still operates as the next logical step for the legendary post-punk band.
We're happy to ride sidecar with the Gang wherever they go! We are totally all about trying new things and taking chances.
