First Recording Following the Death of Founding Member Daevid Allen Whose Voice is Featured on 2 Songs

Gong have entered yet another new phase on their four-decades-plus journey with Rejoice! I'm Dead!, their brand new studio album, due for release on Madfish in September 2016. This is the follow up to 2014's I See You, the last album Daevid Allen was to record with Gong. Some say it couldn't, or shouldn't, be done. How could Gong exist without Daevid Allen? A few minutes into listening to their brand new album aspersions will be cast aside. New members and old coalesce. This is undeniably Gong.

Rejoice! I'm Dead! is classified as the band's 28th album and the Gong legacy is the strongest it has been since 1974. Every member was key in the development of each new song - Kavus Torabi (vocals/guitar), formerly of Cardiacs, who joined Gong in 2014 in time for the last album unaware of the direction his new gig as a guitar player would take, Fabio Golfetti (guitar/vocals), Dave Sturt (bass/vocals), Ian East (sax/flute) and Cheb Nettles (drums/vocals) take on the mantle of steering the teapot further into outer space and the inner ear.

The voice of Daevid Allen even features on two songs, "Model Village" and "Beatrix," and the album also features guests, Steve Hillage playing a guitar solo on "Rejoice!" and Didier Malherbe's duduk can be heard on "Model Village"and "Through Restless Seas I Come." Rejoice! I'm Dead! was recorded in London in the Spring of 2016 at Brixton Hill Studios, engineered by Nick Howiantz and Gong; mixed by Mark Cawthra (Infallible Ear) and Dave Sturt (Swimming Head).

Madfish will release Rejoice! I'm Dead! as a 9 track double LP on 180g heavyweight vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with an accompanying MP3 download code.
