The incomparable href="http://www.popmatters.com/pm/artists/gogol-bordello/">Gogol Bordello returns this summer with a new album and we couldn't be happier. 'Pura Vida Conspiracy' releases 23 July via ATO Records/Casa Gogol Records.
 

The band has made one of the 12 new tunes available over on their Soundcloud. Listen here. From the sound of this new song, it sounds like Gogol Bordello will have no trouble matching the greatness of 2010’s Trans-Continental Hustle.

“For me music is a way to explore human potential,” frontman Eugene Hütz says. “And that’s my main interest in life—human potential. Everyone knows there’s something inside of us that we’re not using. How do we get it? How do we reach it? Every single person knows that there’s something and nobody knows what it is. So at one point I said to myself, I’m gonna get down and get it.”
