The Go! Team to play US (and rest of universe) this spring

You remember The Go! Team right? You know, that band that sounds like a Sesame Street ensemble that took way too much influence from The Jackson 5 and decided to do cocaine. Seems that the Manchester-based Brighton-based group is back doing their thing again with a new record titled Rolling Blackouts slated for February 1 and a whole slew of tourdates to give this announcement some added umph.

If that wasn’t enough info to get your knocks off, check this: the new album includes guest vocal duties from that girl from Best Coast and Satomi Matsuzaki of Deerhoof. Not only that, but they’ve decided to extend their tour over to the States where they’ll give folks on both coasts a taste of their nearly fever-inducing, crack-driven live set. Go ahead and scope out these dates along with the (absurd amount of) Euro ones below.
