We are very happy to share with you a new single by GOAT which is being released on 25 May. The track is titled 'Let it Burn' and you can watch the video for the 'radio edit' above.
Listen to the 'full version' on Tom Ravenscroft show (standing in for Lauren Lavern) here: BBC 6Music
'Let it Burn' was written specifically for the climatic scene in the short movie Killing Gävle, a The Guardian produced film (the video above uses footage from the film) directed by the very talented Joe Fletcher about the famous Gävle Goat in Sweden which every year local custodians of Gävle try to protect a giant straw goat that is built for the town every Christmas being burnt down by mischievous pagans. Obviously Goat’s music was the obvious to soundtrack the film – their back catalogue is used throughout the film but up to now it was the only place you could hear a segment of the 6 minute+ fuzz groove of 'Let it Burn' but now thanks to Rocket Recordings it can be heard in all its glory.

So what makes Let it Burn so good?
Frenetic ‘tribal ‘drums ✓
Speaker shaking ‘fuzzwah’ guitar ✓
Devils Jukebox ‘banshee’ vocal ✓
Ridiculously filthy ‘fuzz bass’ groove ✓
Stop-you-in-our-tracks ‘flute’ breakdown ✓
Climatic ‘strings’ finale ✓
Not only that, but you get a brand new b-side, and like most recent Goat b-sides it reveals another exploratory sound to the bands ‘world music’. Friday Pt.1 is a 4 minute excerpt from an organically evolving, cosmic-jazz, studio jam.
The ltd edition 7" is available in three 'pot luck' coloured vinyl versions on Orange, Red and Yellow, each ltd to 400 copies which will available in all good shops across the globe from 25 May.
Goat play two shows this summer, supporting Foo Fighters at Gothenburg’s Ullevi Stadium on 5 June and they will be headlining Stage 2 at London’s Citadel Festival on 15 July.
