UK space proggers Gong have announced that they will release their latest album, Unending Ascending, through Kscope on November 3.

The new album is the fifteenth studio release by the band and seond to be released by the Kavus Torabi-fronted version of the band, following on from 2016's Rejoice! I'm Dead!, of which the new album forms the second a trilogy of releases.

Gong have also premiered the video for their brand new single, Tiny Galaxies, which you can watch below.

"Tiny Galaxies came together very quickly and we loved it so much, we road tested it around the UK and Europe throughout the summer of last year before we recorded it," explains frontman Torabi

"The fantastic response we received playing it out made it the obvious choice as the first song to drop ahead of our new release. Pick the telescope up for a total headtrip through the cosmos in three and a half minutes, but, for all our sakes, don’t look down the other end.”

Unending Ascending will be available on CD, black vinyl LP, a limited edition green vinyl LP and digital album.

Gong will tour the UK with Ozric Tentacles throughout November and December and again in March. You can see all the dates below.
