Gogol Bordello Announce a New Album

Legendary gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello have announced a new album “Seekers and Finders”. It’s due to come out on August 25th.

First single from the upcoming album is called “Saboteur Blues”. “This song is about the full commitment to the moment and putting the end to this self-sabotage… and going on a rampage with it”,  says frontman Eugene Hütz. “Our lives are royally sabotaged by our thinking being stuck in our past or future. Girls in French mock-flirt the famous crap fuck shot philosophy ‘I think therefore I am’ of Descartes, while the band is clearly offering the alternative ‘I feel, perceive and experience, therefore I motherfucking rock'”.

It’s been revealed that another track, “Did It All” is a duet with Regina Spector.
