Gang of Four to Release Brand New Album in January

Posted by Amoebite, September 14, 2010 01:20pm | Post a Comment
Billboard and various other sources have announced that seminal band Gang of Four will release their first album of new material in 14 years this coming January! The group reunited in recent years, toured to great success and have parlayed that into writing a record's worth of new songs together.

The album will be called Content and will be released in the US sometime in late January 2011.

Bassist David Allen says to Billboard, "The biggest surprise is that we've been capable getting back to our roots. A whole bunch that we've done sounds like [1979's] Entertainment!. It's more aggressive, more angular. People might also be intrigued that [singer] Jon [King] is singing better than he ever did."
