The impressively loud 2 piece GOD DAMN will be headlining what may well be the last NMTBullocks gig night to be held at The Jailhouse on Saturday 29th November, what with the very sad closure of the club on the horizon at the end of the year. Theyâ€™ll be supported on the night by a host of excellent local bands. Loud, intense, brutal, raucous, dirty punk â€˜nâ€™ roll noisemongers Plane Crasher and emotive hardcore punk rock from Weathered Hands. Plus garage indie rockers Cassandra and alternative Chew.
Atomic drum and guitar duo God Damn are pure attack: molten pop hooks galvanized in a blaze of bludgeoning riffs and furiously propulsive percussion. Hailing from the heart of the Black Country, God Damn fuse â€˜Bleachâ€™ era Nirvana, Jesus Lizard, â€˜Surfer Rosaâ€™ era Pixies and At The Drive In influences whilst swearing allegiance to the â€˜Seven Jâ€™sâ€™ of their Holy Bible: Hendrix, Homme, Cash, White, Page, Bonham and Jesse â€˜The Devilâ€™ Hughes (Eagles of Death Metal).
â€¦.what the press say:
â€œA heads-down, hair-in-your-eyes, ****-your-instruments-as-hard-as-humanly-possible riff riot.â€ â€“ The Guardian
A rip-rollicking thrash, brutally mixing grunge and the regions finest export, heavy metal." â€“ NME
A testifying blues grunge prog rock pop metal thrashup... if that sounds like a pretty awesome combination, youâ€™d be right. It is." â€“ Brum Notes
â€œFantastic: loud, louder, and ******* loud, PA testing Motorhead style volume. Times two.â€ Uberrock
â€¦.and finally in their own words when recently talked to Kerrang about their forthcoming One Little Indian release and upcoming tour:
â€œWe canâ€™t wait to take this new material out on the road! We are known for being one of the rawest on the circuit using heavy dynamics with a quiet/loud/jet-engine decibel rangeâ€¦ A sing-along nosebleed kinda vibration,â€ laughs vocalist and guitarist, Thom Edward. â€œWeâ€™ve made a very textured, visceral and angry record with those pop barbed hooks. Weâ€™re fully intent on making layered studio albums with depth and then gloves off, knuckle dusters on for the shows!â€
So check out GOD DAMN on Saturday November 29th, a band definitely on the rise. With multiple plays of their latest single Horus on Zane Loweâ€™s Radio 1 show and a UK Download tour with Turbowolf just days after this Jailhouse show they are an act to watch. Also make the most of The Jailhouse, a venue so supportive of the NMTBullocks shows and live music in general over the last 7 years here in Hereford while itâ€™s still around.
Live: 7.30 â€“ 11.30pm /// Â£5 on the door.
(Includes entry into 80s & 90s Anthems club night after bands till 3am)
