Legendary UK rock'n'roll dons THE GODFATHERS return next month with their first new album in four years!
The appropriately-titled A Big Bad Beautiful Noise is the first Godfathers album to feature the new revitalised line-up - with founder Peter Coyne joined by Steve Crittall and Mauro Venegas (guitars), Darren Birch (bass) and Tim James (drums) - that rocked various festival stages last summer, including the Isle Of Wight, Camden Rocks and Spain's Motorbeach.
As previously announced, the band will accompany the album with a UK tour and they've been declared match-fit having successfully seen off a series of shows in Greece in December.
Speaking of the release, Coyne says, "I can honestly say I really am proud of every single song on this record. We wanted to make a contemporary Rock'n'Roll album that kicked like a mule, and I think we've achieved that. Be warned though! A Big Bad Beautiful Noise is a very addictive album and you just might get hooked!"
A Big Bad Beautiful Noise is released on the newly formed Godfathers Recordings2 label through Cargo on 10 February. It's available to pre-order on CD and 180g deluxe limited edition vinyl here and as a download here.
Check out the video trailer.
The album is preceded by a single 'You Don't Love Me' on 3 February as a download and on limited edition pillar-box red vinyl.
