Post-punkers return - and they need your help...

Gang On Four are working on a new album - and they're asking fans for their support to make it happen.

The much-revered post-punkers have teamed up with Pledge Music to give fans the chance to participate in the new record Content.

For those who pledge their support, there are 500 limited edition 'Ultimate Content Cans' which come with a copy of Content, artwork by Jon King and Andy Gill as well as illustrations from the rest of the band, phials of blood and a scratch and sniff booklet.

Other perks include a never-before-released cassette tape of the band's first ever gig at the Cellar Bar, Leeds in 1977 that comes in a walkman decorated in artwork by King and Gill and entrance to a free exhibition and gig at the ICA in London.

There will also be a Q & A session with King and Gill, an opportunity to purchase a guitar broken by the band on stage, and the chance to have a song remixed by Gang Of Four. Additionally, the band will provide exclusive updates for fans who decide to pledge with previously unreleased songs and videos.
