Tomorrow (February 24) is release day for British post-punks Gang of Four, and fans can now count down the hours until What Happens Next drops by listening to a full-album stream.
The album begins with a vintage blues sample, but from there, Gang of Four venture into a spiky rock direction. Notably, Kills/Dead Weather singer Alison Mosshart takes the mic on a couple of tracks, and other guests include German chart-topper Herbert Grönemeyer, Japanese guitarist Hotei and the Big Pink's Robbie Furze. Between references to "Facebook friends" ("Obey the Ghost") and "a sex-text on my phone" ("England's in My Bones"), there's no question that this is the Gang of Four for a new millennium.

Tomorrow's release will come through Metropolis Records. The UK release will follow on March 2 through Membran.
