Gang Gang Dance @ MHOW in January (more by Benjamin Lozovsky)
Gang Gang Dance, who signed to 4AD earlier this year, are expected to release the follow-up to 2008's Saint Dymphna later this year. Their new label will be including them on a limited 12-inch Record Store Day EP, titled Fragments From Work In Progress, which'll also feature contributions from four other 4AD artists who will be previewing "rough drafts and material" from their upcoming LPs. That comes out April 17th, Record Store Day. Its full tracklist (and participating artists - Tune-Yards, Ariel Pink, more) are below.
Gang Gang Dance (who were recently ripped off & then compensated by Florence and the Machine) are set to open up for Hot Chip at Terminal 5 on April 23rd. That show and Hot Chip's show a night earlier at the venue are sold out.
Hot Chip also just announced a SummerStage show for the August, and Gang Gang have announced a new NYC show of their own as well, to happen April 22nd at Music Hall of Williamsburg (the same venue they headlined in January). Tickets to come soon.
