The song premiered on Consequence of Sound who characterize the song "as contemplative as it is emboldening, the verses finding Hütz examining afamiliar wanderer’s desire and the choruses demanding a challenge to be faced". Listen to it HERE.
It follows the first released track and lyric video, ‘Saboteur Blues’ which is a frenzied punk rocker that flips a middle finger in the face of French philosopher René Descartes.
Having just completed shows across Europe, with a hugely successful run of UK shows including a performance at British Summer Time, Hyde Park supporting Green Day, the band have now announced a UK headline tour this December with support from NYC’s brass/woodwind group Lucky Chops.

Written over an extended time on three different continents, Seekers and Finders finds the nine-piece multi-cultural band in top form - an aural party of violins, accordions, trumpet, marimba amongst the standard rock basics of guitars, drum and bass. “I was still bouncing between Latin America and Eastern Europe when songs were emerging, but finally, as soon as I moved back to New York, it all came into focus… as it always did for me here”, frontman Eugene Hütz explains.
Formed in 1999, Gogol Bordello took their style of Eastern European-influenced gypsy punk and doused it deep into the underground rock of New York City. Having worked with numerous grandmasters of production including Rick Rubin, Steve Albini, Andrew Scheps, and Victor Van Vugt, Seekers and Finders brings the band full circle with Eugene taking over the producer’s chair.
Seekers and Finderswill be released on August 25th via Cooking Vinyl. Pre-orders available now here.
