After a seven-year hiatus, New York experimental outfit Gang Gang Dance is back on the road with new music in tow. Following the release of their new album Kazuashita, their first since 2011, the band has announced a short run of tour dates that will bring them our way this fall for a gig at Boot & Saddle on September 6.

Given the long break in between releases, Kazuashita‘s sound is fresh and new while still continuing the genre-defying fusion of widespread influences Gang Gang Dance is known for (and the new tunes were reportedly well-received at the band’s hometown record release show last week). The title, which roughly translates to “Peace Tomorrow,” suggests the political themes which follow throughout, as the band reflects upon everything from the crisis at Standing Rock to violence in America. Listen to a few tracks below.

Tickets are on sale now. Find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar and see Gang Gang Dance’s full list of tour dates below.
