This summer, Gogol Bordello are returning with their first album in four years. It’s titled Seekers and Finders and serves as their seventh overall following Pura Vida Conspiracy in 2013.

Due through Cooking Vinyl, the 11-track effort is described as a “very magical and playful record,” echoing the Gypsy punk band’s own persona. “It just feels quite complete in capturing the Gogol familia transcontinental lifestyle,” frontman Eugene Hütz notes in a press release, “every side of it… the Good, The Bad, and the Snugly.” Gogol Bordello wrote the LP over an extended time, across three different continents. Regina Spektor guests on the track “Did It All”.

Ahead of Seekers and Finders release date (August 25th), the group has shared the frenetic lead single, “Saboteur Blues”. “This song is about the full commitment to the moment and putting the end to this self-sabotage,” Hütz explains. “And going on a rampage with it. Our lives are royally sabotaged by our thinking being stuck in our past or future.”

Check it out via its lyric video below.
