Watch: New Gogol Bordello Video

The band responsible for the omnipresent ‘gypsy-punk’ description that barely applies to any other band besides themselves, Gogol Bordello have released the new video for Immigraniada (We Comin’ Rougher) through the tech/culture website Boing Boing.

The video has been described as one of the band’s most personal and autobiographical pieces, chronicling the everyday life of an immigrant in the dog-eat-mongrel landscape of Los Angeles. The band themselves unite from all over the globe, collectively hailing from Ukraine, Russia, Israel, China, Ethiopia, Ecuador and Trinidad and so offer a greater legitimacy than most bands tend to have when covering this sort of issue.
