Gogol Bordello Announce New Album, Tour

It’s been close to three years since those ragtag band of international raconteurs known as Gogol Bordello released their Rick Rubin-produced studio album, Trans-Continental Hustle.

Now, Consequence of Sound reports that the band is prepping the release of their sixth studio album, Pura Vida Conspiracy, due July 23rd via ATO Records/Casa Gogol Records. The album was recorded at the Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, Texas with producer Andrew Scheps.

According to a press release, the new songs are “infused with ideas rooted in Eastern philosophy but also search for a means of joining fragmented parts and persons, and of creating a worldwide consciousness.”

“For me music is a way to explore human potential… And that’s my main interest in life – human potential,” frontman Eugene Hütz is quoted as saying in the article. “Everyone knows there’s something inside of us that we’re not using. How do we get it? How do we reach it? Every single person knows that there’s something and nobody knows what it is. So at one point I said to myself, ‘I’m gonna get down and get it.’”

The first single, titled “Malandrino,” was released on SoundCloud.

The band also plans to launch a new tour to promote the album. View the tour dates below.
