Back in February 2020 when life was normal we released our 5th studio album, and those kind enough to pre-order it from Burning Shed received a bonus disc called ‘Motion’ which featured 3 acoustic tracks. We hadn’t recorded any acoustic songs since ‘Emergence’ so it was a nice opportunity to dust off the ‘ol Martin Guitar and see if our finger callouses were still up to the task.
Today the songs on that bonus disc are available for streaming and download. One is a new track called ‘Motion’, one is acoustic version of ‘Surrender’ and the other is a piano/vocal version of ‘Breathe’. Those last two songs are from 'Inescapable' and it was an interesting experience stripping them down to their bare components and seeing if they still sound cool. We think they do and hope you can find some time to check them out! https://godsticks.lnk.to/motion

We would like to announce that we have made the very hard decision to once again postpone our UK tour. With Wales currently in the middle of a lockdown and England just about to enter one, we feel that moving the shows to a later date when we can assure the safety of everyone involved in the shows, and attending them, would be the best course of action. So, here are the new dates:
September 9th 2021 - Fuel Rock Club, Cardiff
September 10th 2021 - Gullivers, Manchester
September 11th 2021 - The Black Heart, London
As usual, all current tickets purchased will still be valid for the new dates and we hope you will hold on to yours. But if anyone would like to request a refund, please contact your venue/ticket provider. We are very sorry to change things around again, and we hope everyone out there is staying safe!
We have been working very hard re-arranging our headline gigs that were supposed to happen back in April 2020, and now we are very happy to say that our U.K tour is back on!
The first show will be in London on Thursday December 3rd, followed by Manchester on Friday December 4th and Cardiff on Thursday December 10th. We understand that there is still some question over whether music venues will be able to re-open by then, but hey, we're being cautiously optimistic! All tickets purchased for the previous date are still valid, and we hope that you'll take a chance with us and grab a ticket! See our gigs page for full details and ticket links.
