Gospel finally reunite! rare Brooklyn show announced (and on sale)
As we wrote last year:
Gospel were only around for a few years in the mid-2000s, but that was enough time to write one of the most seminal screamo records of the 21st century, their sole 2005 album The Moon Is A Dead World. Pulling from ’90s screamo and post-hardcore but also mixing in prog, psych, post-rock, and more, the Kurt Ballou-recorded album breathed fresh air into a genre that was pretty oversaturated at the time, and it went on to be very influential. It’s hard to imagine some of the late ’00s/early ’10s New Wave of Post-Hardcore bands sounding the way they did if not for The Moon Is A Dead World. Even with all the bands in this genre that came before and after them, The Moon Is A Dead World remains unparalleled. It’s a true classic.
No word on more shows at the moment.
