Sweden’s Goat About to Release Live 2013 Album


UK performance documented their World Music tour. Below, watch a video of a live concert from the same year.

 In August 201, theatrical Swedish psych band Goat – Julian Cope-approved, no less – released their debut album, World Music. The record went on top many ‘Best of 2012’ lists and the following year, the band took the album on the road. Starting off a year of shows was Goat’s performance (or “Ritual” as the band likes to call them) at Roadburn Festival. A ‘packed to the rafters’ performance was the perfect warm up to their first proper tour, that saw them take on the USA. Footage, audio and photos of their sold out US shows streamed across the internet and revealed a band at the top of their powers.

So on July 27th, the eve of their now legendary Glastonbury performances, the band took the stage at Camden’s Electric Ballroom in London to celebrate the recent launch of their single ‘Stonegoat’. The ATP-promoted show was incendiary; the 1,100+ crowd either danced furiously to the band’s psyched grooves or stood there, mouths open and gazed in awe at the spectacle they couldn’t believe they were witnessing

 Now the LP Live Ballroom Ritual is set to come out on the Rocket label. The double-LP set is due out Dec. 10. And after a long but successful summer the band are now back in Korpilombolo, Sweden, writing the follow up to World Music.
