Never miss another 'Godsticks' show
Hailing from South Wales, U.K., Godsticks are a three-piece progressive heavy rock band whose music has frequently been described as imaginative and original. Godsticks musical style is intricate yet accessible; an abundance of melody played with precision and panache.
Their eponymously titled EP  received overwhelmingly positive reviews, with the band being considered “a refreshing approach to the contemporary music scene”. In 2010, Godsticks released their debut album Spiral Vendetta. The extensive production proved worth it as the album received a unanimously positive response, being described as ‘mesmerising’. One reviewer said: "Spiral Vendetta has it all in spades with chops, emotion, musicality and imagination, the songs pack a breathtaking amount into concise pieces and the album in no way outstays its welcome."
A worldwide distribution deal was secured on the strength of the album and the band completed a number of tours and festivals within the U.K., supporting such acts as ‘The Pineapple Thief’ and ‘The Aristocrats’, which introduced the band to a much wider audience. This extensive live work had an influence over the writing of their second studio album The Envisage Conundrum, released in 2013; it became much heavier and guitar-driven. Kerrang Magazine said: "From the stuttering hard rock of Caught In A Bind to epic three-parter Borderstomp's electric jazz, we get flashes of innovation and virtuoso class". In 2013 Godsticks supported The Mike Keneally Band on a 13 date tour of Europe and co-headlined a UK tour with ‘Knifeworld’. A three week European tour in 2014 supporting ‘The Aristocrats’ followed, and indirectly forged a path towards an even heavier sound.
Following in the footsteps of 2012’s The Envisage Conundrum, the band continued to explore the heavier side of their musical style with their upcoming release Emergence and created a work that includes more concise songwriting filled with addictive grooves and memorable choruses. Fans need not worry though, there is still plenty of signature Godsticks style throughout the album. Never a band to play things safe, Emergence (due for release 4th September 2015) signifies a milestone in the progression of the band from complex crossover progressive music to a more focused heavier style.
