The Go! Team – new album artwork and tour dates

You can’t stop the deafening excitement here at the Oyster offices in anticipation for the latest Go! Team effort Proof of Youth. All the tracks we’ve heard so far, only make us want this record to drop in our laps.

Armed with new tunes the British musical cheer squad will be heading stateside in support of the new record.

The album is another treble-heavy adventure in audio, bombing melodies into the stone-age with its needle-in-the-red, anti-production approach and lurching from bubblegum pop to white noise in a heartbeat. And this time, it?s not just the band?they?ve invited some of their friends to the party, including hip-hop luminary Chuck D of Public Enemy, the original Double Dutch Divas, Maryland?s pint-sized Rapper?s Delight Club, Marina from Bonde Do Role, Amsterdam?s Solex, and Washington, DC?s Frederick Douglas All Star Cheer Team.

Um… let’s do the math. The Go! Team plus Chuck D equals the bomb squad.

Proof of Youth takes it to the streets on Sept. 11 from Sub Pop/Memphis Industries.
