Ukrainian Punks Gogol Bordello have announced new album Solidaritine, for September 22nd, 2022, as well as a Fall 2022 tour. The seven piece of mixed heritage from locations such as Ukraine, Ecuador, and Russia have always crafted music with a patchwork of Punk, Gypsy, Dub, Folk, Latin Swing, and Eastern European elements. With Solidaritine, they go more Hardcore with good reason. Singles “Forces of Victory” and “Focus Coin” are out now.

Frontman Eugene Hutz says:

This is music of survival and perseverance. That’s always been our main driving force. We just want to give the world a timeless album with messages of human potential and power. Rock ‘n’ roll comes out of a real place. Take a group of people who have endured immigrant traumas and dislocation. They create music, get successful together, become more baroque and experimental, and experience some years of relative calm. All of a sudden, humankind encounters these problems like the pandemic and the war. This is when rock ‘n’ roll is the most necessary and where we perform the best.

Their eighth full-length album is inspired by survival in the face of adversity, a theme they feel can be applied to the pandemic just as much as it can be applied to the war going on in his native Ukraine. New York Underground artist Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Rival Schools, Quicksand) Produced the album.

Gogol Bordello will be hitting the road in support of Solidaritine this Fall in North America with the tour kicking off at Pittsburgh’s Mr. Smalls Theatre on October 20th and heading West to Seattle’s Neptune Theatre on Nov. 14th.
