Since releasing A Joyful Noise in May, Gossip have crisscrossed the globe performing to sold-out crowds in New York City as well as major festivals in Germany (Rock am Ring, Rock im Park and Melt Festivals), Japan (FUJI Rock) and Australia (Splendour in the Grass).  Gossip will also perform at V Festival in the UK in mid-August in addition to their slot at Treasure Island Festival in October.  Led by the dynamic powerhouse vocalist Beth Ditto, Gossip are renowned for their incredibly high energy and amazing live shows.  NME described the band as "mind-blowing." They go on to say "everyone needs to hear this band and dance like there's no tomorrow." 
Gossip are Beth Ditto (vocals), Brace Paine (guitar, bass, keyboards) and Hannah Billie (drums).
