The Go! Team Sign To Sub Pop!

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
The Go! Team are looking to continue the maximum excitement level effected by their name when they release lots of new material this summer. Most importantly, the band has signed on with Sub Pop Records in the US for the release of a full length album.

"The genre-defying, multinational, party-starting 6-piece will be releasing their second album, Proof of Youth, through a dizzying fleet of record labels around the world this fall. And here in these United States, on September 11, 2007, Sub Pop will have the honor," said an announcement from Sub Pop on the signing of the band. Details are scant on the Sub Pop relationship, but there's a lot more in the works for the Go! Team this summer. It's so exciting but I'm trying to hold back the urge to use Go! Team-style punctuation with exclamation points as we speak!

They'll also release a single for Grip Like A Vice on CD and 7", with a bonus version of Sonic Youth's Bull In The Heather on the 7' version. The Go! Team toured with Sonic Youth and the Flaming Lips last summer, so it seems that the Sonic Youth vibe has rubbed off on them. It also features a remix by Black Affair, which features Steve Mason (formerly of Beta Band).

And tour dates, because how can you be in a band and not play shows? Right. They're hitting the festival circuit with gigs at Glastonbury, Benicassim, and Lollapalooza to name a few. Check out the tour dates, the recent performance on Transmission, and Go! see the Go! Team!
