Following on from the release of their 2018 LP 'Semicircle', The Go! Team have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving in the coming months.
The new full-length 'Get Up Sequences Part One' will become their sixth record to date, is being previewed by the new lead single 'World Remember Me Now', and is set to be released on the 2nd July via Memphis Industries.
Speaking about the new offering, the band's Ian Parton said, "I’ve always been interested in people’s daily routines - what people do all day. It was written ages ago but has become strangely relevant to the world now. It’s easy to feel forgotten at the moment."
While adding about the album, "I lost hearing in my right ear halfway during the making of this record. I woke up one Thursday in October 2019 and my hearing was different in some way - it fluctuated over a few weeks and at one point everything sounded like a Dalek. I seem to remember listening to music was bordering on unbearable. Over time it settled into just a tiny bit of hi end being audible on my right side. I thought the hearing loss was from playing music too loud over the years but it turns out I was just unlucky and it was a rare condition called Menieres. It was traumatic to keep listening to songs I knew well but which suddenly sounded different and it was an odd juxtaposition to listen to upbeat music when I was on such a downer. The trauma of losing my hearing gave the music a different dimension for me and it transformed the album into more of a life raft."
