Goat announce new single
“It’s Time for Fun”


Rocket Recordings are pleased to announce that Goat will be releasing a brand new single this August. This is their first release since their critically acclaimed second album, Commune last September.  During the winter months, the band returned to their Swedish village of Korpilombolo to write new material, and this two-track single is their first fruits.
“It’s Time For Fun” will be released on a limited edition 7″ and digital on 7th August 2015.
Goat have a busy summer ahead of them.  As well as recording a new album (their third for Rocket) they have several festival appearances confirmed including a return to Glastonbury this weekend.  If you can’t make it down to Glastonbury, then you can still watch Goat’s spectacular performance live on the BBC or tune in to BBC 6Music on Sunday from 9pm for Stuart Maconie’s Freakzone, when they will be performing their new single.  6Music will be repeating the highlights of their set throughout the week.
