It was pointed out to us recently that Faced with Rage was the only Godsticks album that didn’t feature an acoustic guitar track. So we have stripped a song down to its bare bones and this is the result. Hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it. The video (filmed and edited by Chris Vinnicombe) can be viewed above.
Just an update regarding our upcoming European dates on 18,19 and 20 May: we have had to postpone them until later this year. Our apologies to everyone who bought tickets; they will be refunded in full at the ticket outlets they have been purchased at. The new dates have not been confirmed as of yet, but they will likely follow the dates we’re about to mention in 3...2...1...
Manchester, Newcastle, and Glasgow – we’re returning to your wonderful cities in October.
Friday 12th October – Soup Kitchen, Manchester. Co-headlining with the wonderful Trojan Horse
Saturday 13th October – The Cluny 2, Newcastle
Sunday 14th October – Glasgow (venue TBC shortly)
We’re just a few weeks away from embarking on our first headline tour for quite some time. It's been a huge privilege to be the opening act for many great bands over the last few years but to have the opportunity to present a full 90 minutes of our own music is a very exciting prospect indeed. We’ll be playing lots of songs from Faced with Rage including quite a few tracks never before performed live, so it promises to be very special indeed.
As if that wasn’t enough, we will also be performing at two amazing festivals. First off is Prog Sud, a well known progressive rock festival held every year in Marseille, France. Godsticks will be performing on Thursday 10th May alongside Telescope Road and Lazuli. Secondly we will be performing at Stone Free Festival on 17th June at The O2 in London! We feel honoured to be part of an amazing line-up of acts on the Sunday, including Richie Kotzen, Ana_thema and Yes. Godsticks will be the opening act on the Indigo At The O2 stage.
So, to say we’re looking forward to the next few months would be an understatement. We’d love to meet as many of you as possible at these gigs and festivals - come and have a chat with us after the show! Here’s a run down of all our upcoming live performances.
Friday 4th May - Buffalo Bar, Cardiff, Wales (support from Calling Apollo)
