GOAT shares “Alarms,” a new track from Requiem, their forthcoming album

GOAT is pleased to share “Alarms,” the latest offering from GOAT’s forthcoming longplayer, Requiem, which is out October 7th via Sub Pop Records in North America, Stranded Rekords in Nordic countries, and Rocket Recordings in the rest of the world. “Alarms” highlights the folk influence that runs through Requiem, with acoustic guitars and hand-percussion instruments driving the song, while retaining the hypnotic vocals and fuzz-drenched guitar leads the band is known for.

Requiem finds GOAT focusing more on their subdued, bucolic ritualism than psilocybin freakouts, with a pronounced folk-rock influence pervading the album.  But GOAT hasn’t foregone their fiery charms—tracks like “All-Seeing Eye” and “Goatfuzz” conjure the sultry pulsations that ensnared us on 2012’s World Music and 2014’s Commune.

Requiem will be available in North America on CD / 2xLP / DL / CASS on October 7th, 2016. You can preorder the band’s new record here. LP pre-orders through the Sub Pop Mega Mart and independent retailers will receive the limited Loser Edition on translucent red vinyl with black streaks (while supplies last).

GOAT recently announced some European shows, with more dates to follow. Please find a current live schedule below.
