Trans-Continental Hustle is the fifth album by gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello, released on April 27, 2010. Produced by Rick Rubin, Trans-Continental Hustle primarily draws inspiration from frontman Eugene Hütz's life in Brazil, where he has lived since 2008. This album is Gogol Bordello's major record label debut. The collaboration with Rubin was initiated after Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine saw Gogol Bordello perform at a live show in LA and told Rubin to check them out; after seeing the performance he offered to work with the band.[8] "Immigraniada (We Comin' Rougher)"; Track 5 on the album; has received heavy airplay during on Sirius XM Radio's Faction Channel 41 as well as other genre stations. At least two of Faction's shows are playing the single, including Faction's The Jason Ellis Show and Faction with Christian James Hand.
