THE GODFATHERS return next year with a brand new album and single and a series of dates.
A Big Bad Beautiful Noise, the band's first new album in 4 years, is set for release on 10 February through their own label Godfathers Recordings2. It will be preceded a week earlier by a single 'You Don't Love Me' on 3 February.
Recorded in Birmingham over the summer, it's the first Godfathers album to feature the fully revitalised line-up of frontman Peter Coyne, guitarists Steve Crittall and Mauro Venegas, drummer Tim James and bassist Darren Birch.
Says band founder Coyne, “It’s very important to myself and the rest of the band that The Godfathers make a kick-arse, contemporary rock’n’roll record that expands upon the musical legacy of the great Godfathers’ albums - Hit By Hit, Birth School Work Death, More Songs About Love And Hate and Unreal World. And I believe we’ve just done that...”
Having proved their chops earlier this year with a sold-out European Tour, headline appearances on the Vive Le Rock stage at Camden Rocks and at Spain’s Motorbeach Festival and a showstealing performance at the iconic Isle Of Wight Festival, the band have lined-up a series of UK dates, including the previously announced show at the Islington Academy, London on 11 February.
