GOAT @ Brooklyn's MHoW, April 2013 (more by Matt Schiels)
As seen on BrooklynVegan, Swedish experimentalists GOAT have inked a deal with Sub Pop Records after releasing a one-off single via the label in 2013. They're currently working on a proper follow-up to 2012's World Music, and will also be touring North America this spring/summer. They'll come stateside later this month for a run surrounding Coachella and will also be back in June for Bonnaroo. They've now revealed more June dates, including a show at Thalia Hall on June 13. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Saturday (4/5) at 11AM CST.
GOAT also released a live album, dubbed Live Ballroom Ritual, in December via their UK label Rocket Recordings. It was recorded at London's Electric Ballroom, and you can take a listen to a few LP cuts at the bottom of this post.
All GOAT dates and some Live Ballroom Ritual song streams lie after the jump...
