Much imitated, never bettered – Gang of Four are back, their lyrics and music as sharp as ever.
One of the most influential bands of the 21st century
Like some hibernating agit-prop agency awakening to meet the needs of these hard times, Gang of Four are in typically brusque form on their first new material for 16 years.

Riveting and robotic, they still have the capacity to thrill
As vital and venomous as their incendiary 1979 debut Entertainment!
“This deserves one very high mantle”
The most consistent GO4 album since their debut
Brilliant and infinitely better than we’ve any right to expect, the songs bristle with ideas, energy and conviction
