Following up their provocative 2018 EP “Complicit”, which featured Ivanka Trump on its cover, pioneering post-punk band GANG OF FOUR are releasing a brand-new full-length album, HAPPY NOW  on March 1, 2019. The album is available now for pre-order HERE. 

Happy Now comes 40 years after the release of the band’s  groundbreaking debut Entertainment! A combination of electronics and angular lines pursuing 21st century grooves achieve the striking balance between the band’s fundamental sound and its restless embrace of the now and the new.   

 “Happiness is always an odd one; so difficult to pin down. Our personal lives are always a mixture – sad things, tragedy, joy. When we were younger, we thought things would gradually get better: the world would be less sexist, less racist, progress would be made and now we know that history isn’t linear; it’s very capable of U-turns.” Andy Gill,

The band is also announcing a US tour in support of Happy Now starting February 4th in Tustin, CA. The band will be traveling across the country for two months hitting cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, and NY. 

Gang of Four is: Andy GillGaoler, Thomas McNiece, and Tobias Humble
