It’s been a long time since the world heard new music from The Go-Go’s — but the Los Angeles punk/new wave band‘s new song, “Club Zero,” is here.

Premiered late Thursday night/early Friday, the song is linked to the band’s new Showtime documentary premiering Friday night (more on that later).

If you’re in the mood, the band put together a cocktail for the occasion …

The Go-Go’s documentary will premiere on Showtime Friday, July 31.

Footage of the band — Belinda Carlisle (vocals), Jane Wiedlin (guitar), Charlotte Caffey (guitar), Kathy Valentine (bass) and Gina Schock (drums) — working on an early version of “Club Zero” is featured in the new doc. Watch a trailer for the film below:

Here’s the story on “Club Zero”:

The self-produced track was created via email exchanges amongst bandmembers and recorded at Lucky Recording in S.F. with Co-Producer/Mixer/Engineer Travis Kasperbauer and in Los Angeles with Lead Vocal Recording/Producer Gabe Lopez. As the band’s stance has always been fervent when it comes to relevant issues, the anthemic, punk-infused paean arrives just in time for a world in desperate need of a voice of optimism and change:

“HEY WE’VE GOT SOMETHING TO SAY
‘GONNA MAKE THE WORLD SHAKE’
READY OR NOT HERE WE ARE”

The Go-Go’s burst onto the music scene with 1981’s Beauty and the Beat, setting in action a string of hit records and acclaim that earned the group the title “The most successful all-female rock band of all time.”

The Go-Go’s planned to promote the upcoming documentary with a special 2020 summer tour, though those plans were scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The shows will be rescheduled for 2021:
