It could be their last...

The Go! Team have claimed that their new album 'Rolling Blackouts' could be their last.

Beginning as a bedroom project, The Go! Team have grown to become a multi-coloured pop collective. Now onto album number three, the Brighton based ensemble have decided to mix it up a bit.

Sure, the frenetic pop energy is still there but 'Rolling Blackouts' has a melodic edge. Out now, the album is a more mature but no less fun instalment.

Speaking to the BBC, leader Ian Parton claimed that the album could be a good place to halt the project. "We don't want to do a Jay-Z and say that and then three years later we'll be, 'Hey!' again. But it may well be… the last The Go! Team record. It might be the last year we're touring, certainly, the band (in their current line-up)."

Oh dear! Mind you, there is a big difference between "may well be" and a definitive split from the much loved collective.

The Go! Team rapper Ninja spoke to ClashMusic recently about 'Rolling Blackouts'. The rapper explained that the band had attempted to broaden their influences when brainstorming material for the album.

“The new album’s sound; it’s fifty percent Go! Team - noise, thrash, chaos and mess - but it’s got a little twist; there are more melodies, harmonies and female vocals. It’s a little easier to listen to, though there are still songs to smash your bedroom up to" she said.
