Portland, OR rock trio Gossip will hit the road this Spring for an eight city tour of the U.S. The tour kicks off with the band taking the stage at this yearâ€™s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 17th and runs through April 30th at Terminal 5 in New York City (see below for full itinerary). Fronted by the incredibly bold, brash and amazingly talented Beth Ditto, Gossipâ€™s live shows are like a dance party you hope will never end. The bandâ€™s latest release, Music For Men, was produced by multi Grammy Award winner Rick Rubin and has received accolades on both sides of the Atlantic for itâ€™s triumphant, energetic and refreshing sound. A video for the bandâ€™s third single, â€œPop Goes The World,â€ was directed by Philip Adelman (Jay-Z, Silversun Pickups, Maxwell) and will premiere in March.
Currently finishing up a tour in Australia, Gossip have toured extensively over the past couple years, covering the major festival circuits in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan. The band’s live show has garnered critical acclaim and has cemented Gossip’s reputation as one of the most exciting and relevant must-see live bands. NME raved â€œThe greatest punk rockâ€™nâ€™roll disco soul band on the planet. Gossip are mind-blowing. Everyone needs to hear this band and dance like thereâ€™s no tomorrow.â€
Gossip are Beth Ditto (vocals), Brace Paine (guitar, bass, keyboards) and Hannah Billie (drums).
