Gold returns with their fourth – and finest – album, Why Aren’t You Laughing?, due out via Artoffact Records and produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Grave Pleasures). The Dutch ensemble marry hypnotic gothic vibes with soulful heavy rock, overlaid with atmospheric, often dream-like vocals. Available on CD,vinyl, and digital formats on April 5th. Recalling the experimentalism of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the dark and sweet beauty of Kristin Hersh and Throwing Muses, but firmly rooted in a powerful, yet artsy rock vibe, Gold have tapped into something truly unique. The band’s delicate balance has caught the attention of the likes of Converge, with whom they toured in 2016 and 2017, as well as New Model Army, who invited Gold as support for dates in 2018. In 2019, Gold will tour Europe, including performances at Roadburn and Hellfest.
