“Wonderlust King,” the first video off of Gogol Bordello’s new release SUPER TARANTA! will debut July 16 on MySpace.com’s “Hot Video” and will remain on the front page of MySpace’s music section under “Featured Videos” throughout the week. In addition, SUPER TARANTA! jumps to #10 this week on the CMJ Top 200 chart.
Gogol Bordello has also confirmed a string of West Coast tour dates beginning August 27 in San Diego with stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland before finishing September 1 at Bumbershoot in Seattle.
SUPER TARANTA! is the highly anticipated follow up to 2005’s “Gypsy Punks.” Produced by Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey) the album internalizes the spirit of “Sicilian Tarantella” and provides a deep connection between all forms of rebel music. With this album, Gogol Bordello brings an unexpected twist to their Transglobal Gypsy Rebel Rock sound and is receiving rave reviews.
The band will also perform on The Late Show with David Letterman Show August 1 before returning to the UK to perform at the Beautiful Days Festival on August 18 and the Reading & Leeds Festivals on August 24 & 25 respectively.
