The Go! Team Announce New Album ‘SEMICIRCLE’ + Share New Single ‘Semicircle Song’
THE GO! TEAM are back with a brand-new album, SEMICIRCLE out 19 January 2018. They have shared the first track from the album, the ebullient, heart-warming ‘Semicircle Song’.
‘Semicircle Song’ is the result of a pilgrimage to Detroit – city of Motown and The Stooges, of musical (and actual) revolution – and a hook up with The Detroit Youth Choir. Team lead Ian Parton says of the song:
“With 'Semicircle Song' I was trying to take the technicolour feel of a marching band into a more psychedelic place, reclaiming that sound from patriotic or sporty bullshit and harnessing its toughness and power."
SEMICIRCLE is out 19 January 2018, you can pre-order the album on limited edition neon pink vinyl, CD, cassette and digitally, as well as in bundles that include a signed test pressing, vinyl slipmat and badge set. On top of this, Rough Trade have an exclusive green vinyl edition of the album.
