Ever-evolving and perpetually defying convention, Gossip is back with their fifth studio album, A Joyful Noise. A blend of soul, gospel, rock, funk, disco, punk, passion and rebellion, Gossip is comprised of vocalist Beth Ditto, guitarist Nathan Howdeshell, and drummer Hannah Blilie.
A Joyful Noise stays true to Gossip’s trademark brash and unapologetic nature – that is, as true as possible for a band that is constantly reinventing itself and pushing boundaries. Gossip sought to create their own brand of pop, with frontwoman Ditto proclaiming, “I spent the whole year listening to ABBA and not listening to the radio,” accounting for the pulsing energy of A Joyful Noise. The album’s infectious tracks will certainly be welcomed by fans who are already entranced by Gossip’s insanely danceable beats, and will no doubt lure in many more.
Since their previous studio effort, Gossip have toured extensively, covering the major music festival circuits, making appearances at Coachella in the US, Rock am Ring in Germany and Glastonbury in the UK. Recently they were one of the headliners on the Australian Parklife tour in 2011, and they’ll be back soon to play Splendour In The Grass 2012.
