Guided By Voices Share New Track “The Rally Boys” On NME, Announce First London Show In 15 Years

Today, NME has shared Guided By Voices’ new track “The Rally Boys” from their forthcoming epic double album, Zeppelin Over China, (in stores on February 1).

Along with this track premiere, the band has announced they will play their first London show in 15 years! (They’ve also snuck in a couple of U.S. tour dates). All are below.​

Zeppelin Over China is a major and majestic work in the GBV canon, spotlighting the scope and genius of Pollard’s songwriting. With 32 songs in 75 minutes, the massive Zeppelin reaches lofty heights on its musical journey. Pollard continues to deliver endless invention and emotional wallop in 2 and 3-minute guitar rock gems.

Pollard has assembled his greatest supporting cast ever — Doug Gillard (guitar), Kevin March (drums), Mark Shue (bass), Bobby Bare Jr. (guitar) and Travis Harrison (engineer) — and this line-up’s virtuosic talents spur him to his most ambitious work yet, a grand album of emotional resonance and narrative drama

After well-deserved acclaim for the mind-boggling milestone of Pollard’s 100 career albums, Zeppelin Over China is a wonderful entry point for new listeners to experience Guided By Voices for the first time. Not resting on his laurels, Pollard’s tireless tenacity pays off with spectacular results.

Pre-order the album here.
