It’s released in October.

New York noiseniks Gustaf have announced details of their debut album.

‘Audio Drags For Ego Slobs’ will be released on 1st October, following which they’ll hit the road both Stateside and across Europe, including support slots with IDLES, Pillow Queens and a handful of festival shows.

It features new single ‘Book’, shared today.

“‘Book’ is a song about the fallacy and fight of getting ahead vs being a head. It is seeking validation in the wrong places and from the wrong people,” singer Lydia Gammil explains. “The hook, “I got ahead, I got a head” is a fun little taunt that we find either being thrown in our face or coming out our mouth. Everyone gets their moment up on the pedestal and everyone gets their turn falling off of it. Whether it’s up or down, ‘Book’ is about accepting whatever level you’re on.”

Watch the video for ‘Book’ below.

Their UK live dates are:

2 Birmingham Sunflower Lounge (w/ Pillow Queens)
3 Bristol Rough Trade (w/ Pillow Queens)
4 London Dome (w/ Pillow Queens)
8 Leeds Hyde Park Book Club (w/ Pillow Queens)
9 Manchester YES (Pink Room) (w/ Pillow Queens)
10 Liverpool Arts Club Loft (w/ Pillow Queens)
11 London The Windmill
