Published Dec 18, 2009New York-based post-hardcore quartet Gospel only existed briefly in the mid-2000s. In their limited run, they managed to drop The Moon Is a Dead World, an incredible record that blended fist-pumping heavy hardcore with complex, vintage prog. After splitting in 2006, the band have reunited and are preparing a new album.
As Brooklyn Vegan reports, the band have already announced their comeback show. Joined by like-minded experimental hardcore kids Drunkdriver and Tournament, the band will make their return with a show at Brooklyn's Union Pool on January 29.
Even better, the band have announced that they'll be playing a bunch of new material, which they also intend to record and release. In a November post on their MySpace blog, the band said that they "wrote an album's worth of new material." A practice recording of the song "Hhyper" can be heard on their Muxtape page. It doesn't have vocals yet, but it explores the same intersection of prog and post-hardcore.
