UK’s GANG OF FOUR released its critically-acclaimed new album What Happens Next earlier this year on Metropolis Records. Called “the year’s best record” by San Diego Reader and a “spry, twisty workout” by Entertainment Weekly, the “edgy, intense, and confrontational” ( Paste ) What Happens Next features collaborations with Alison Mosshart from The Kills, Robbie Furze from The Big Pink, Gail Ann Dorsey, and Japanese superstar Hotei. German superstar Herbert Grönemeyer takes vocals on the latest single “The Dying Rays” whose video was premiered by A.V. Club. With their debut album Entertainment! posited at #8 on Pitchfork’s Top 100 Albums of the 1970s (which was incidentally also found on Kurt Cobain’s handwritten list of favorite albums), Gang of Four have been incredibly influential on artists as diverse as Bloc Party, St. Vincent, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, Sleater Kinney, Franz Ferdinand and LCD Soundsystem.

Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist and songwriter, Ilan Rubin is best known for his drumming with Nine Inch Nails, Angels & Airwaves and Paramore, but it can be argued that his best work happens when this one-man-band is fronting-and backing – The New Regime. Attendees of the upcoming tour will get a unique live music experience – with Rubin on guitar/vocals fronting a 3-piece band. The addition of a full band allows for a raw, dynamic representation of his music, packed with improvisations and embellishments expanding beyond the recorded material. Rubin’s commanding stage presence will shock those used to seeing him behind a drum-set. The New Regime premiered the video for “We Rise, We Fall” on Monday which you can see here.
