Following the release of their acclaimed second album POINT FINGERS, Belgian 5 piece post-punk/prog outfit THE GURU GURU shares their frenzied new single (IN) SNAKES & LADDERS (STAKES DON’T MATTER), taken from their limited edition double vinyl EP IT’S A (DOGGY DOG) WORLD and LIVE IN ANTWERP. The EP is set for release on 25th JUNE 2021 via RUMBLE HEAP RECORDS, with LIVE IN ANTWERP only being made available with the limited edition vinyl.

The Guru Guru’s latest avant-garde offering was recorded and fully self-produced, with the mixing duties completed by the band’s very own Emiel Van Den Abbeele (guitarist and producer) at Farrm Studio, Hasselt. The project was completed throughout many stages of the global pandemic in 2020/2021. Expanding on the band’s addictive brand of tangential, progressive-rock, IT’S A (DOGGY DOG) WORLD leads listeners down The Guru Guru’s twisted rabbit hole; fraught with tales of the road, self-depreciation, controversy and political conspiracy.
“Fate knows no justice. Life is unfair, but rules apply…” remarks TGG frontman Tom Adriaenssens, in regards to their latest single (IN) SNAKES & LADDERS (STAKES DON’T MATTER). “When we started writing the demos for our EP, politician Jan Jambon was in the news a lot… Sadly and controversially, a man had died in pre-trial detention. Jambon claimed ignorance, covering up as ‘a communication error.’ I tried to put myself into this kind of slippery thinking/headspace… life is a game.”
The band will perform at The Adelphi in Hull on August 12th 2021.
