Gogol Bordello have announced their new album SOLIDARITINE which is set for release on 16th September 2022 via Casa Gogol/Cooking Vinyl.
“This is music of survival and perseverance. That’s always been our main driving force. We just want to give the world a timeless album with messages of human potential and power,” explains vocalist Eugene Hutz. Inspired by actions in the face of adversity including the war taking place in his native Ukraine, he continues: “Our music was always about perseverance. Rock ‘n’ roll comes out of a real place. Take a group of people who have endured immigrant traumas and dislocation. They create music, get successful together, become more baroque and experimental, and experience some years of relative calm. All of a sudden, humankind encounters these problems like the pandemic and the war. This is when rock ‘n’ roll is the most necessary and where we perform the best.”
The band have also shared a visualiser for the album’s lead single Focus Coin. “The quality of your ability to focus defines everything in your life and that’s exactly what the first single, ‘Focus Coin’ is about. Your focus is the hardest currency there is,” says Hutz about the track.
