Gang Of Four announce live album Live… In The Moment; fall U.S. tour with The Faint

Gang Of Four 1

Official press release:

When Gang Of Four returned to the spotlight last year with the release of their critically-acclaimed album What Happens Next in 2015 on Metropolis Records, their longtime fans returned en masse to their new music and their live shows. While Gang of Four in the studio is pure mastery, Gang of Four live is whole other experience. Edgy and unpredictable, the legendary godfathers of post-punk always threaten to dissolve into chaos while never losing the tightness and angularity that is the hallmark of their sound. On September 9, 2016, Metropolis Records will release Live… In the Moment, recorded live from their sold-out show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall (a companion live DVD features their sold-out concert at NYC’s famed Irving Plaza).

Featuring Andy Gill’s blazing guitarwork with John “Gaoler” Sterry on vocals, Thomas McNiece on bass, and Jonny Finnigan on drums, Live… In The Moment is a perfect snapshot of what makes Gang of Four’s live performances so exciting. With a setlist that spans their 30-year career from Entertainment’s “Damaged Goods” right on up to “Where The Nightingale Sings” from their latest album What Happens Next, it’s an awesome aural experience to behold.

Live… In The Moment will be released on September 9, 2016 via Metropolis Records.

1. “Where The Nightingale Sings”
