Rejoice! I’m Dead! is the band’s 28th album and the Gong legacy is the strongest it has been since 1974. It was the follow up to 2014’s I See You, the last album founding member Daevid Allen would ultimately record with Gong.
Every member was key in the development of each new song – Kavus Torabi (vocals/guitar), Fabio Golfetti (guitar/vocals), Dave Sturt (bass/vocals), Ian East (sax/flute) and Cheb Nettles (drums/vocals) took on the mantle of steering the Teapot further into outer space and the inner ear.
The voice of Daevid Allen features on 2 songs – “Model Village” and “Beatrix”, and the album also features guests – Steve Hillage playing a guitar solo on “Rejoice!” and Didier Malherbe’s duduk can be heard on “Model Village” and “Through Restless Seas I Come”.
