Rick Rubin-Produced Gogol Bordello Album, ‘Transcontinental Hustle,’ Due Out This Spring

    Transcontinental Hustle, the fifth studio album from Gogol Bordello, has been announced to be out this spring. The album was produced by Rick Rubin, whose beard fits in greatly with the already nuts facial follices in Gogol. There’s no firm release date as of yet, but expect a melange of styles, some of which might sound like a car pileup in Eastern Europe.
