New Album!!! What the F*@k!


Mmmm well hello...

Where the hell have we been? Answer: making the God dam best freakin' record you ever did hear....will hear. Jeeez! Leave it owt wud cha! Yours truly along with the other cats have been beavering away writing hit singles, epic anthems, toons to make you ass wiggle, it's all in there, on the hotly anticipated new album. The release date is yet to be confirmed but the first quarter of next year is looking good. The record is expected to pick up innumerable awards from around the Globe, an effortless standard the Five Englishmen have attained.

The record has been made with Brian Deck in Chicago, Virginia, with additional Horns recorded in Brooklyn and Amy Milan singing in LA. We finished the final session last week after being in and out of the studio over the course of the last year in a drunken mess (which was nice), followed by a frenzy of mixing this week. Finally some special news, Gomez's Christmas single "Are you going to the Pub" will be bringing delight to Children's ears before you know it.

Dudes! Great news! Brilliant! Hope that you guys can come to Brazil for pete´s sake. I tried my best at the Tampa concert this year, but that freakin heavy rain was just awful!

All the best!

Great to see Ian out here in San Francisco this past weekend. I notice Ben is afraid to leave home...WTF Ben, Take a lead from Ian and lets add some of the cool cities here in the US to that solo tour!

Yeah we know how much y'all love SmelLA ... make sure you hit here twice on the tour, eh?
Any idea what's the title name?

Oh man this is so exciting, this news had made me feel so much better about travelling all the way to Tassie to go see Gomez at the Falls Festival.

Another attempt...sounds ok I guess...hopefully (and I'm not holding my breath here) you've gone back to what made you one of the most unique sounding bands. Do people really want to hear you "cry on demand"? What ever happened to heavy tunes such as The Dajon Song, Gomez in a Bucket, Revolutionary Kind, and California??? I still say your best work was released as B-sides from 99 - 02. Think about it.

I can't wait to hear the new stuff. Great work. Brilliant. Hope there's some pre-sale for the CD and a big NYC show. See you then.

That early Bside stuff is my favourite of the catalogue too, but you can't expect good bands to just keep on churning out the same stuff (although it HAS worked for the Rolling Stones). I'm interested in any path Gomez take, cos they're just great musicians who each bring something to the band. Keep writing those melodies...

Oh yeah, come to Adelaide when you're in Oz... that gig at the Gov was fantastic... Last time you said "See you in a year or so..." which could be seen as a legally binging contract in Australian law ;)

Thank GOD! Have missed the flurry of touring that I've been spoiled with over last coupla years w/HWO album...! its been like the early B.I.O., L.S., I.O G., years... hopefully you hit the States BIG time this time round.. tough travelin to LA and Chicago (although I did!) for solo/rare dates. ;) Hey - if you guys are looking for a fun place in between your (hopefully) NYC & Boston Spring dates, try Saratoga Springs!! (or nearby Albany/Troy) Its the shiznit - Ask your buddy Dave Matthews !
LOVE you guys - lookin forward to the next time.. And, agree with Alex - you take whatever path you want musically - they're all EONS above the cr*p out there and I'll take it - its ALL appreciated and played over and over and over... :) - Sharon

Well it's about time!

2 Great initial albums followed by countless substandard commercialised rubbish albums and then desserted in favour of America, us british fans deserve some TLC from Gomez because I'm guessing all the fans that helped you win the Mercury Music Prize many years ago have since forgotten you exist!

A new album and a new tour, though this time you guys are hitting the RSL / Leagues Club circuit in Sydney.

Fantastic! But when are you going to a gig in Perth that isn't at a festival? I'm desperate to see you guys but couldn't make Blues and Roots and Southbound this year isn't a goer either :-( Come on guys, we love you out west here!

Looking forward to the new album.
Can't wait to see you in Asheville again. Always a good show. I've been a fan from the beginning. I read that this album might be a bit of a return to your "more experimental roots".... I'll drink to that!
