New York - February 3, 2010; source: Columbia Records - The gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello, whose live shows have Entertainment Weekly dubbing them "the world's most perfect festival band," will headline an international mini-festival of their own, the Casa Gogol Tour, an evening's worth of insurgence from the multi kulti revolution, launching April 18 in Montreal (please see Casa Gogol Tour itinerary following).

The North American leg of the Casa Gogol Tour follows Gogol Bordello's appearance at the 2010 Tibet House Benefit Concert in New York and the band's major tour of Australia in late March and April.

All dates on the Casa Gogol Tour will feature a full-on Gogol Bordello headline concert as well as sets by bands and DJs in simpatico with the GB mission.  North American dates on the Casa Gogol Tour run from April 18 through May 1 and will include sets by Slavic-punk-band DeVotchKa,East Village punk troubadour Jesse Malin and St. Mark's Social, electro-anarchists Tres Leches Afterparty Sound Crew and special surprise guest appearances.

Select dates on the European leg of the Casa Gogol Tour will include sets by the VMA-winning Brooklyn punk-dance duo Matt & Kim, Mariachi El Bronx (the musical alter-ego of the hardcore punk band The Bronx) and Tres Leches Afterparty Sound Crew.

Casa Gogol is crossing America, and then the Atlantic, to celebrate the upcoming release of Transcontinental Hustle, the avidly-awaited fifth studio album from Gogol Bordello.   Produced by Rick Rubin,Transcontinental Hustle is the first Gogol Bordello studio album since 2007's SUPER TARANTA! inspired the rarest of accolades, an "A+" from Robert Christgau, the Dean of American Rock Critics, who called them "the world's most visionary band."

Gogol Bordello's radical invocations of positive primal energy and planetary consciousness combine with a music infused with ska, metal, punk, rap, dub and, more recently, intimations of indigenous Brazilian sounds to produce a party maelstrom of electrifying proportions.

Led by revolutionary change agent and provocateur Eugene Hutz, Gogol Bordello, a nine-piece juggernaut of gypsy rebel soul, has become an international force to be reckoned with.

And the party's just beginning.  The doors of Casa Gogol are open!
