Legendary British rock & roll band THE GODFATHERS explode into action in 2013 with the much-anticipated release of a brand new album ‘JUKEBOX FURY’ – their first full-length studio release since ’95 - & a 23 date March UK tour with punk icons The Stranglers. ‘Jukebox Fury’ was produced by The Godfathers & will be released on the band’s own Godfathers’ Recordings label via Cargo Records distribution on March 4th.

The track listing for ‘Jukebox Fury’ is as follows: 1 – Let Your Hair Hang Down 2 – If I Only Could 3 – Primitive Man 4 – The Outsider 5 – I’m Branded 6 – A Can Of Worms 7 – Back Into The Future 8 – I Can’t Sleep Tonight 9 – Mary Baby 10 – Theme To The End Of the World 11 – The Man In The Middle 12 – Thai Nights

‘Jukebox Fury’ will be preceded by the release of a download single entitled ‘I Can’t Sleep Tonight’ on Itunes on February 12th.

The Godfathers, famed for their incendiary live shows & primal rock & roll numbers like ‘I Want Everything’, ‘Birth School Work Death’ & ‘Walking Talking Johnny Cash Blues’, formed in ’85 & released the classic albums ‘Hit By Hit’, ‘Birth School Work Death’, ‘More Songs About Love And Hate’ & ‘Unreal World’. The London band reformed in 2008 to promote the critically acclaimed re-issue of their seminal debut album ‘Hit By Hit’ with knock-out live shows around the world & celebrated their landmark 25th anniversary in 2010 with a live CD/DVD compilation called ‘Shot Live At The 100 Club’. The Godfathers influence has grown steadily in recent years with American stadium rockers Local H & Spoon releasing cover versions of Godfathers’ classics & The Mars Volta citing the band’s trademark primal rock & roll sound as a major influence on their recently released ‘Noctourniquet’ album.
