GOMEZ Release Whatever’s On Your Mind

UK five-piece, Gomez, are releasing their seventh studio album, Whatever’s On Your Mind, TODAY on ATO. The band wihttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifll be streaming their concert from London’s infamous Roundhouse in Camden via a live webcast in honor of the release – tune in at 4:00 PM EST/1:00 PM PST! The concert will also be streaming at Spinner.com, Relix.com, PasteMagazine.com, Jambase.com and Exclaim.ca.

Gomez will be heading out on tour through July hitting NYC’s Terminal 5 on July 14 and performing in the Dave Matthews Band Caravan plus playing select dates with the John Butler Trio. Full list of announced dates are below! Additionally, they will be hitting the small screen with performances on The Late Show with David Letterman on July 13 and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on July 25.

Serving as the follow-up to their acclaimed 2009 release, A New Tide, their forthcoming Whatever’s On Your Mind sees Gomez (Ben Ottewell, Tom Gray, Paul “Blackie” Blackburn, Ian Ball and Olly Peacock) pushing their limits in a way we have not yet heard. The band partnered up with longtime friend, Sam Farrar (Phantom Planet) to co-produce and sought out to feature other artist friends on the record, Luke Steele (Empire of the Sun, Sleepy Jackson) and Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, TV on the Radio, Iron and Wine). Whatever’s On Your Mind, finds Gomez driving forward on a beautifully lush and dynamic album. There is a fresh feeling of rebirth and awakening. One to raise a smile even from the naysayers. A broad grin from the rest of us.
