On their sixth studio album, Gomez offers fans a more experimental, less pop-infused effort. A New Tide feels somewhat like a return to form. The five members once again took the unique method of writing separately and exchanging portions of songs electronically. And despite the physical distance apart, the results are cohesive.

From Southport, England, Gomez is on the road in support of their brand new album, Whatever's On Your Mind. They play the TLA with Good Old War, on Friday night, July 15 at 8pm. Gomez wil be here for XPN's Free At Noon, July 15.

A five-piece consisting of Ben Ottewell (vocals, guitar), Tom Gray (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Paul Blackburn (bass, guitar), Olly Peacock (drums), and Ian Ball (vocals, guitar, harmonica). Combining hefty rock beats with pop choruses and even hints of country, folk, and blues, Gomez has over a decade's worth of acclaimed, ever-evolving music. They've had tracks featured on several TV shows, toured with the Dave Matthew's Band, Cake, and Ben Kweller, and climbed charts with every release. Their latest album, A New Tide, is out this month. It just could be their best yet.

A New Tide, a return to the band's roots, to their most free-wheeling and psychedelic sound. The songs range from solid rock to cool rhythmic exchanges to bluesy melodies. Imaginative and eclectic, Gomez' music is not to be missed.
