GOAT reveal 'Hide from the Sun – the first song from their forthcoming new album COMMUNE

Here is the first song from Goat's new album.
The song is called Hide From the Sun, and you can listen to it here:

It is taken off the forthcoming album COMMUNE which is released by Rocket on 22 September 2014.

The press release reads:

GOAT return with COMMUNE the eagerly awaited follow up to their astonishing debut album WORLD MUSIC. COMMUNE continues on with World Music’s acidic grooves, hypnotic incantations, and serpentine guitar lines but also introduces a darker more angry edge to the band, not seen before.

Starting with the layered percussive groove, Eastern guitar flourishes, and convoking vocals of “Talk To God”, it re-establishes the trance-inducing rhythms and exotic blaze of guitar that characterised their debut so well. That spellbound pulse delves into darker and more propulsive territories on “Words” and “Goatslaves”, while “Goatchild” veers towards the transcendental pop of ‘60s Bay Area rock. The vintage psychedelic vibe permeates through songs like “The Light Within” and “To Travel The Path Unknown”—tracks that suggest that these rural Swedes operate on the same wavelength as the Turkish psych-folkies recently rediscovered by reissue labels like Finders Keepers. Commune reaches its apex when GOAT’s hymnal invocations meet a heavy doze of proto-metal fuzz on “Hide From The Sun” and “Gathering of Ancient Tribes”. 

Goat will be presenting these new songs on Festival stages throughout the summer before embarking on their first full European tour which finishes with a massive show at London's Roundhouse.
