It's been almost two decades since gypsy punk rockers Gogol Bordello released their debut record Voi-La Intruder. Since then the band has built a massive worldwide following and released a string of genre creating albums.
The band's newest effort, Seekers and Finders, finds them digging even deeper into their own philosophical findings. From disagreements with Descartes to their exploration of mysticism and personal roots, the album finds the band challenging themselves and fans to look deeper.
Musical director and lead singer Eugene Hütz has spent his time exploring the world. Born in the Ukraine, he arrived in the United States in 1992 after a long journey through Poland, Hungary, Austria and Italy. Recently he lived for a few years in Brazil, but it's New York that he calls home, and it's on the trip home where his projects come together.
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with Hütz to discuss Descartes, his Eastern European roots, and the new Gogol Bordello album.
