Gang Gang Dance have announced their newest full-length Eye Contact to be released May 9th. The LP is the follow up to the group's breakout success Saint Dymphna. It comes after a label switch from The Social Registry to 4AD. Luckily the move sees them continuing with their cinematic vision of what contemporary dance music should always strive for.

The group has seen a radical shift over its years. Those who have been following GGD have seen them evolve from art school no wavers towards the sleek global trotting outfit they are today. According to 4AD their new album Eye Contact was again produced by Chris Coady, who also helped helm the bands previous efforts Saint Dymphna & RAWWAR. Some may also know Coady from his work with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House, & Zola Jesus. Apparently the album also "features a guest appearance from Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip, whose signature vocals take centre stage on the track ‘Romance Layers’." To top things off there will also be a limited x2 A sided 12" to be released shortly before the alum proper.

In the meantime time you can also purchase Saint Dymphna or other previous GGD releases over at The Social Registry, and for those of you in Europe check out the live dates below.
