'Seekers And Finders' is set for release in August.
Gogol Bordello are returning with their brand new album 'Seekers and Finders' later this year, featuring the sensational new track 'Saboteur Blues'. It has taken a long time for the band to finally complete this unique collection, but you're unlikely to be disappointed.
Gogol Bordello to release 'Seekers and Finders'
The nine-piece experimental punk band launch their seventh album this summer, which they recorded across three continents. It comes four years after their previous album release 'Pura Vida Conspiracy', and indeed eleven years since their landmark hit 'Start Wearing Purple'.
''Seekers and Finders' is just a very magical and playful record for us', said frontman Eugene Hütz. 'It just feels quite complete in capturing the Gogol familia transcontinental lifestyle, every side of it. the Good, The Bad, and the Snugly. I was still bouncing between Latin America and Eastern Europe when songs were emerging, but finally, as soon as I moved back to New York, it all came into focus. as it always did for me here.'
'Saboteur Blues' is the first track to be released from the album, which according to Eugene is basically a mockery of 17th century philosopher René Descartes. 'Our lives are royally sabotaged by our thinking being stuck in our past or future', he explains. 'Girls in French mock-flirt the famous crap f**k shot philosophy 'I think therefore I am' of Descartes, while the band is clearly offering the alternative 'I feel, perceive and experience, therefore I motherf**king rock'.'
