The Godfathers Unleash Big Bad Beautiful Video!!

Perhaps the best song they have recorded for years the new Godfathers single is dark, twisted and thrilling and twists their tough gnarl rock n roll into new shapes and is built around a killer hook.

The Godfathers release a brand new video for ‘A Big Bad Beautiful Noise’, the title track of their recent, critically acclaimed album & the lead track on their new, limited edition 10 inch ‘A Big Bad Beautiful EP’.

Godfathers’ singer Peter Coyne says, “The song & video reflect the social & political tensions in today’s society. We want our music to be a part of the soundtrack to a long, hot & very angry summer.”

‘A Big Bad Beautiful EP’ features 4 tracks – ‘A Big Bad Beautiful Noise’ a new ‘High Voltage’ remix of live favourite ‘Defibrillator’ & TWO previously unreleased numbers ‘You’re So Slow’ & ‘Human Zoo’ & is only available exclusively from the band’s official website

The Godfathers also play a unique, 2 set special concert ‘A Big Bad Beautiful Night At The Lexington’ in London this Saturday June 24th – in the 1st set they perform the entire ‘A Big Bad Beautiful Noise’ album in sequence & the 2nd, much longer set will feature Godfathers’ classics & treasures, many of which they have not played in years. Special guests are Los Pepes, doors open 7pm & the venue curfew is 4am

  1. Going to this on Saturday … can’t wait. The Godfathers are always great value for money live. First saw them in Newport back in early ’88.

    One of my great gig (not) going regrets was not being able to make it to the Wag Club party/gig to celebrate signing to Epic and releasing the single of Birth School Work Death in 1987. As a callow mid-teen, i got a lovely letter from the band (or Roland Hyams, manager) inviting me and one of my friends down to that London for the gig as we’d written to them for merchandise previously. A lovely gesture, that we were unfortunately too young to take up. Always loved them for that. See you Saturday guys.
