Long-running UK band The Godfathers are back with new album A Big Bad Beautiful Noise on February 10 on the band’s own Godfathers Recordings2 label and Metropolis Records. The group’s snarling sound remains intact 30 years on from their classic “Birth School Work Death.” We’ve got the premiere of the album’s closing track, “You And Me Against The World,” a swirling widescreen epic straight out of the Bond Theme cannon with more than a dash of glam. “This track was inspired musically by the death of David Bowie and lyrically by the political fall-out from Brexit,” says singer and founding member Peter Coyne which he describes as a “post-apocalyptic love song.” Stream that, and a few other songs off the album, below.

I saw the mighty Godfathers at the Westgarth in 'Boro last night. What a brilliant gig; best I've ever seen them. They played a long set with loads from the new album. Get to see them if you can- if not get the new CD which came out yesterday. It's as good as anything they've done.

Official release date is today (but I guess they sold it at the gig). It will take a while still until mine arrives, but thanks to amazon.de I can listen to mp3s of it (if I want)... Edit: it should arrive tomorrow. I'll wait.

Hope they'll come to south Germany again, I'd love to see 'em. 2015 gig was great.  8)

Godfathers part 2 for me in Newcastle last night. Excellent again. Should have been more people there but they seemed to enjoy it.
Here's the 'boro gig from last week;
