Go Forth! is the first studio album, and fourth release overall, by the Lovian post-punk band Hop-Scotch. Recorded from 1979 to 1980 in Abby Springs Studios, a secluded recording studio in the back of the Abby Springs Lanes bowling alley in Newhaven, this album was very successful. It was produced by Sofia Lilland's son James, and she and her family financed the album.

All the songs were written by Jackson Doe and Massimiliano Di Traglia, except for When I Die, which was written solely by Jackson.

No singles were issued from the album. This choice was described by Massimiliano as 'something to separate us from actual punk, which takes stock in its singles only'. Many older fans consider Go Forth! to be their best work.
