GOGOL BORDELLO Release “Seekers And Finders (Acoustic)” Featuring Regina Spektor
Tour Dates Announced!
Recharging after a triumphant 2017 that saw the release of their critically-acclaimed seventh album SEEKERS AND FINDERS, self-proclaimed gypsy-punk rockers GOGOL BORDELLO are kicking off the new year with the release of a stripped down version of the title track “Seekers And Finders (Acoustic).” Featuring fellow Eastern European and close personal friend Regina Spektor, the track is a lilting and breezy duet that is the perfect blanket for the frigid winter spell that is currently gripping the United States. “It’s the duet of the wandering Jew and the roaming gypsy by the campfire, which we represent most perfectly,” adds Gogol vocalist and mastermind Eugene Hütz. The track is available today via all traditional digital outlets.
In addition, Gogol Bordello is gearing up for their West Coast tour (full list of dates below) which kicks off mid-February in Vancouver and hugs the coast to Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre on March 5th! Accompanying them again on this trek is the high energy five-piece brass band LUCKY CHOPS who were described by NPR Music as a, “Totally on fire, big ass brass band… gnarly, punky and funky.” The fierce horn players of Lucky Chops will even be sitting in on some songs with Gogol Bordello making for a unique and unforgettable time!
Tickets can be purchased here: http://www.gogolbordello.com/#tour. Gogol Bordello will then travel to Australia immediately following the West Coast dates and onto a world tour for the Summer.
Gogol Bordello is continuing to support their newest release, Seekers And Finders, which finds the nine-piece multi-cultural band in top form – an aural party of violins, accordions, trumpet, marimba amongst the standard rock basics of guitars, drum and bass. “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,” he explains.
Seekers and Finders has been getting serious love from publications like NPR, WNYC Soundcheck, Magnet, Paste, Washington Post, and USA Today.
Formed in 1999, Gogol Bordello took their style of Eastern European-influenced gypsy punk and doused it deep into the underground rock of New York City. Having worked with numerous grandmasters of production including Rick Rubin, Steve Albini, Andrew Scheps, and Victor Van Vugt, Seekers and Finders brings the band full circle with Eugene taking over the producer’s chair.
Gogol Bordello is Eugene Hütz (vocals/guitar), Sergey Ryabtsev (violin), Thomas Gobena (bass), Pedro Erazo-Segovia (vocals/percussion), Pasha Newmer (accordion), Boris Pelekh (guitar), Alfredo Ortiz (drums), Ashley Tobias(vocals / percussion). Seekers and Finders is out now via Cooking Vinyl.
