GOZER GOODSPEED ANNOUNCES BRAND NEW SINGLE & ALBUM
After releasing three well-received acoustic EPs in as many years, and after playing hundreds of live dates at all kinds of venues across the South West of the UK, Gozer Goodspeed is pleased to announce the release of a brand new 7 track album, Running with the Outliers.
Working with prodigiously talented producer Chris Love at the newly-built Whistlewood Studios in Plymouth, Gozer has, for the first time in his career, recruited a full band of talented musicians to record with in the studio, and kept the recording sessions as live and spontaneous as possible. The result is a modern, vibrant indie folk rock album teeming with different moods, different vibes, and unexpected left turns, and packed full of Goodspeed's trademark multi-layered, emotive, often wryly playful lyrics.
Released everywhere on November 15th 2019, Running with the Outliers will make you redefine what you think you know about Gozer Goodspeed's music.
Ahead of the album release, the title track was released everywhere as the first single on October 4th 2019. Watch this space (and social media) for details of a very special album launch event!
PRAISE FOR THE SINGLE 'RUNNING WITH THE OUTLIERS':
"Running With the Outliers... is stunning; folky, bluesy, rocky, bit of a Lennon vibe on the vocals but, because of it being a full band sound, it has taken a near flawless artist and put him in the realms of perfection" - Steve Taylor-Bryant, Albiemedia.com
"...full of life, blues and pathos... If your musical Venn diagram crosses over Neil Young, the Black Crowes, Jake Bugg, the Indigo Girls and Ben Harper then you will adore this and, like me, you will be very excited about the forthcoming album" - Roland Monger, Listenwithmonger.blogspot.com
"The underlying rock mentality comes much more to the fore... a wonderfully earthy, cheeky song... no self-indulgence, just a great modern folk-rock song. Just the way the world needs it!" - Carsten Schaefer, Raute Musik Rock (Germany)
"It's a belter!" - Steve Muscutt, Musomuso
"It's great!" - Peter Cartwright, Riviera FM
"This track is truly an unorthodox righteous hit! Goodspeed’s vocals and slamming guitar are mind-blowing"
- Lakisha Skinner, Klef Notes
PRAISE FOR THE ALBUM 'RUNNING WITH THE OUTLIERS':
"... an album of gravel-soaked grace... an urgency that is electrifying and a passion that is undeniable ... Running with the Outliers is without doubt a savagely good listen" - Kevin Burke, The Big Takeover
"It’s the sound of progression with a deeper musical expression. Folk hero turns into oo’s British Smashing Pumpkins with the help of a band of brothers that makes your hair stand on end. It’s musically/culturally important the way music should be" - Jackson Cooper
"The record is such an all-encompassing joy " - Carsten Schaeffer, Raute Rock Radio
