Today, Gang of Youths surprise released their new EP, total serene. Stream it via Apple Music or Spotify below.

The three-track collection marks the Australian band’s first project since 2017’s Go Farther In Lightness and was recorded in their London studio space. Its title references the “universal human desire” frontman David Le’aupepe has “craved for his entire life.”

total serene includes “the angel of 8th ave,” which marked the return of Gang of Youths when they released it in June. When previously asked about the group’s next full-length, Le’aupepe told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that it will be “ready when it’s ready. I’m not gonna rush it.”

In August and September, the band will be embarking on a UK headlining tour which will make stops in London, Brighton, and Nottingham. A press release teases US tour dates to be revealed in the near future.


Tickets are currently available at Ticketmaster, and you can check out their full tour schedule below.
