Post-punk pioneers Gang of Four are coming back swinging into 2019, with the new album, Happy Now, due out March 1 via PledgeMusic. Featuring original G04 guitarist Andy Gill, along with Thomas McNeice (bass player since 2008) and John ‘Gaoler’ Sterry, on vocals since 2011, the band will hit the road for a US tour too.

“Happiness is always an odd one; so difficult to pin down. Our personal lives are always a mixture-sad things, tragedy, joy,” explains founding member Andy Gill. “When we were younger we thought things would gradually get better: the world would be less sexist, less racist, progress would be made and now we know that history isn’t linear; it’s very capable of U-turns.”
