Gramsci Returns with Stunning New Single and Video ‘Ancient History’ Out Today

First new music in 15 years (where have you been?)


This is the first new music from Gramsci in 15 years, with lead single Ancient History from the soon to be released album Inheritance, premiering today.

Unsurprisingly, musically prodigious NZ composer, singer, guitarist and Gramsci mainstay Paul McLaney, has spent the intervening years studiously. McLaney has long relished challenging himself artistically, and his discography is testament to an extremely diverse voyage of musical discovery over the years. Be it the classical folk stylings of EDIN, the ambient electronica of The Impending Adorations or the theatrical song settings of Shakespearean soliloquies, for McLaney it’s all been about the inspirational intertwining of musical and personal growth.


The new album, Inheritance,  is out on June 26 and  is the first to feature veteran, award-winning producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers, Catatonia) on drums and the live line up is completed with multi-instrumentalist Jol Mulholland (Gasoline Cowboy, Mulholland).
