Sub Pop Signs Swedish Band Goat

Swedish psychedelic collective Goat have signed to Sub Pop! Goat’s hypnotic, 2012 debut, World Music, received widespread acclaim and placed in many of that year’s top-ten lists. The mysterious, masked group continued to awe the world with their intense, ritualistic live shows, the “Dreambuilding” b/w “Stonegoat” 7” , and the recent Live Ballroom Ritual double-album.

If you’re in the US, you can, and honestly should (see embedded video for proof), catch Goat on their upcoming west coast tour, which begins Thursday, April 10th in Pioneertown, CA at Pappy & Harriet’s, and ends Friday, April 18th in Indio, CA at Coachella. Additionally, Goat have two summer festival appearances to mention:  June 12th-15th in Manchester, TN at Bonnaroo and June 20th in Toronto, ON at NXNE. Please find a complete list of tour dates below.

While you await details of Goat’s next record, please enjoy “Dreambuilding”, from the aforementioned Sub Pop 7” (Listen Here).
