Goose has announced the release of their eagerly awaited new album. SHENANIGANS NITE CLUB arrives on Friday, June 4; pre-orders are available now.
The Norwalk, CT-based band’s second studio LP and first full-length collection in more than five years, SHENANIGANS NITE CLUB is heralded by the mesmerizing new single, “Spirit of the Dark Horse,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Generally recognized as the first Goose song ever written, “Spirit of the Dark Horse” has garnered legendary status within the band’s faithful fan community. Despite this, the boldly ambitious track – which originated after a “twelve-minute meditation” between co-founders Rick Mitarotonda (vocals, guitar) and Trevor Weekz (bass) – has long been a setlist rarity, featured in only a handful of live performances during the band’s early years.
SHENANIGANS NITE CLUB follows the recent release of Goose’s remarkable cover of Vampire Weekend’s “2021 (January 5th, to be exact),” featured on Vampire Weekend’s new 40:42 EP and available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Personally commissioned by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig – a longtime Goose fan – with the only directive to make it twenty minutes and twenty-one seconds long, the expansive track is accompanied by a full-length performance video, streaming now via YouTube.
Hailed by Billboard for their “penchant for innovation and creativity during the pandemic,” Goose will celebrate SHENANIGANS NITE CLUB with a series of socially distant live dates beginning May 3 and 4 at Frederick, MD’s Showtime At The Drive-In and then hitting North Charleston, SC’s Riverfront Park (May 6) and Pelham, TN’s The Caverns Above Ground Amphitheater (May 8 and 9).
