Yep, they're back...
Goldie Lookin Chain

Goldie Lookin Chain have unveiled their new album 'Kings Of Caerleon'.

Smart, funny and undoubtedly puerile, Goldie Lookin Chain came straight outta Newport almost a full decade ago. Toasting their 10th anniversary, the Welsh hip hop collective have pieced together a new album and a nationwide tour.

First up: the music. 'Kings Of Caerleon' is set to be released on September 2nd and features the group's usual array of Golden Age-aping beats and sharp lyrical observation.

Opening track 'It's The Chain' finds the band re-inventing themselves, only to unveil a similar format as before. "It’s like blowing up a tower block" explains Eggsy, "then building a spark new one with working lifts that don't smell of piss, it's wicked".

Sounds intriguing...

Meanwhile, Goldie Lookin Chain have also confirmed a full UK tour. Opening in Bournemouth on October 2nd, highlights include a show at London's historic Scala venue on October 24th followed swiftly by a Cardiff date on October 25th.
