The Gossip Undergoes Surgery, Prepares For Fall Tour

The Gossip must be looking to win the award for most overachieving band of 2005. To start with, the blues-revival punk band is touring throughout the fall, starting in early September and running through nearly the end of October. They have just recorded a new full-length, titled Standing In The Way Of Control, for release on Kill Rock Stars. On top of that, they are also set to release a DVD, a split release with Le Tigre and have launched a MySpace page.

One of the drawbacks to a life of rock & roll can be a lack of health insurance. Singer Beth Ditto recently went under the knife for gall bladder surgery. Several benefits are currently being held across the Pacific Northwest region of the US to help Ditto help pay for the procedure. Make sure you go out and catch this fantastic band when they roll into a town near you.
