Post-punk legends Gang of Four boast an illustrious history with nine albums released over the span of a 36 year career. Although they’ve undergone several lineup changes, vocalist Andy Gill has been the one consistent member since the band inception in the late 70’s. The 1980’s saw the band’s peak popularity as the post-punk genre was in it’s golden era at the time. However, as many bands have faded Gang of Four have continued to establish their legacy as one of the most important and influential bands in the genre’s history.
Now in 2014, the band are back with their latest album “What Happens Next” an album that brings post-punk into the modern era. With collaborations from current artists like Alison Mosshart, Gang of Four’s new album seamlessly blends past and present bringing to the table Andy Gill’s experience of the genre’s past and the newest band member’s energy and drive to cement Gang of Four’s legacy as a band still making great music.
