GoGo Penguin may have the advantage of being named after the cutest animal ever (and having an awesome logo), but their blend of jazz, electronica and trip-hop alone is worth talking about. It just so happens we have some fodder for conversation in the form of an announcement of a new album, due out in early 2018, and an accompanying mini tour through their native England!
The band’s new album, A Humdrum Star, has a February 9, 2018 release date. This is quite good timing for a new album, considering their last effort Man Made Object was released in February of 2016. No additional details yet unfortunately, but we’re looking forward to pre-order information, and hopefully a single or two soon. We will be sure to share more is it is made available to us!
Luckily, we do have more details on their mini tour. Dubbed ‘A Humdrum Star Live’, it consists of four dates and will be visiting Brighton, London, Bristol, and their hometown of Manchester. We can only imagine that, given the name and proximity to the release date of the new album, the setlist will consist mainly of new material. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 20 at 10:00 AM through their official website. Venue and date details can be seen below on their neat and minimalist poster!
