Tortoise announce new album; share first single ‘Gesceap’

Legendary Chicago post-rock noisemakers Tortoise have revealed details for a forthcoming new album due out on January 22nd via Thrill Jockey. The Catastrophist, not to be confused with Ronan Bennett’s idiosyncratic post-colonial tour de force, has been a seven-year work in progress and despite being a largely instrumental affair, includes a vocal contribution from Yo La Tengo’s Georgia Hubley. Ahead of the full-length release, listen to ‘Gesceap’, the first single to be taken from The Catastrophist.
