Gong Announce New Album 'Rejoice! I'm Dead!'


(Prog) Gong will release their latest album Rejoice! I'm Dead! on September 16. The psych-rock outfit are putting out their 28th title - and their first without founder Daevid Allen, who died of cancer last year aged 77.

The record also includes an early song idea rehearsal featuring the late singer, along with Gong alumni Steve Hillage, Didier Malherbe and Graham Clark. A clip featuring guitarist Hillage can be heard below.

Singer Kavus Torabi says: "Rejoice! I'm Dead! came together over several weeks in an East London rehearsal studio. In terms of the writing, the songs became very elastic, what may have been brought to the band as a fixed idea, through experimenting, discarding, expanding and mutating evolved into the songs as you hear them now. Every member was key in the development of each song." Read more here.
