Gomez comeback

I realise that I'm increasingly in the minority with this viewpoint, but I still regard Gomez as one of the best British bands there is.  There's a lot to love across their five albums so far.

Good news, then, that they return with a new album at the beginning of next year.

This is how the band describe it on their blog:

Where the hell have we been? Answer: making the God dam best freakin' record you ever did hear....will hear. Jeeez! Leave it owt wud cha! Yours truly along with the other cats have been beavering away writing hit singles, epic anthems, toons to make you ass wiggle, it's all in there, on the hotly anticipated new album. The release date is yet to be confirmed but the first quarter of next year is looking good. The record is expected to pick up innumerable awards from around the Globe, an effortless standard the Five Englishmen have attained.

The record has been made with Brian Deck in Chicago, Virginia, with additional Horns recorded in Brooklyn and Amy Milan singing in LA. We finished the final session last week after being in and out of the studio over the course of the last year in a drunken mess (which was nice), followed by a frenzy of mixing this week. Finally some special news, Gomez's Christmas single "Are you going to the Pub" will be bringing delight to Children's ears before you know it.

The band have recently been playing their Mercury Award winning album, 'Bring It On' in Europe and the US, and travel to Australia in January for the Falls, Byron Bay and Southbound festivals, and a few sideshows with the Black Keys.
