Gang Of Four to release new 'Content,' hit the Paradise in February


With a fresh new album on the way and 1978 classic “Damaged Goods” still firmly entrenched in post-punk dance party playlists ‘round the good green Earth, Gang of Four are coming back to show us what’s up. Well, most of them are, anyway, as the dude with the dred-head up there looks like he was probably born after the release of Entertainment! and just wrapped up siqq prax with Sevendust.

To celebrate the Jan. 25 release of Content, Gang of Four’s first album of new jams in 16 years, the Leeds post-punk ambassadors embark on a 13-date North American tour that hits the Paradise Rock Club on Feb. 7.
