Dude, reader, where you BEEN AT?

According to a relatively reliable website called Tiny Mix Tapes, Gang Gang Dance — known worldwide as the “BAND OF THE FUTURE, TODAY!™” — have already released their latest (ergo greatest) album Kazuashita LAST DAMN WEEK on 4AD!


I mean, I don’t want to freak you out or anything, but…you’re WAY BEHIND the times! Quick: memorize this upcoming list of tour dates that Lizzi Bougatsos, Brian DeGraw and Josh Diamond — along with touring members Ryan Sawyer (drums) and Doug Shaw (bass) — are planning on embarking upon later this summer with the likes of Deer Hunter, Grizzly Bear, Frankie Cosmos, Terry Riley, DJ Stretch Armstrong, and more. It’s some seriously high-profile shit. (And I do suggest you memorize it “quick,” cuz this shit is already all over the internet.)

While you’re at it, bone-up on the band’s most recent singles “J-Tree” and “Young Boy (Marika in Amerika)” down below before they fall irretrievably into the BLACK HOLE of The Past. That way, you can at least fake your way through a semi-intelligible GGD conversation when you’re hanging out at, say, this summer’s Hopscotch Festival with Belle and/or Sebastian from the indie duo Belle and Sebastian. You wouldn’t wanna look stupid or anything…
