Godsticks release new album 'This Is What A Winner Looks Like' 

We are very excited to tell you about our new single ‘If I Don’t Take It All’, taken from our new album ‘This Is What A Winner Looks Like’. As you can see from the music video above, we went for a much darker tone this time out! Our amazing videographer Martin Holmes created this prison-like atmosphere that, along with some really energetic performances by the band, perfectly captures what this song is about. We’re very happy with the finished product and we hope you will check it out, share it, like it, all the usual stuff!

But you may also be wondering, “Who’s that guy on the bass?”. Well, if you follow us on social media you will most likely already be aware that our friend and long-time bassist Dan Nelson has decided to leave Godsticks. You can read the announcement for the full explanation but to cut a long story short, Dan just felt that it was time to move on, and we all wish him well for the future. We’re all still mates and of course we will miss his contribution to Godsticks as he is without doubt an indelible part of our sound. We think he’s saved his best until last too, as you’ll find out if you listen to our new album ‘This Is What A Winner Looks Like’!

Now I guess we are beginning a new chapter along with this new music, and the new bass player that’s coming along for the ride is Francis George. Last year he filled in on bass for our performance at Prog Power Europe, and somehow managed to not only learn our very complex material in no time at all, but play it with a great sound and feel. So it was a no-brainer really; we knew we had to invite him to join us!

This new line-up will be on the road in June as we embark on another mini-tour of the U.K! Catch us live in Cardiff, London, Newcastle and Edinburgh between June 22nd and 25th – make sure you get your tickets in advance now from 

Finally, we must say a big thank you to everyone who has already listened to the first single from the new album, which is called ‘Mayhem’ (video on the right hand side of this page). We have been inundated with very kind comments, and we’re so happy to see you all enjoying what is one of the heavier tracks from ‘This Is What A Winner Looks Like’. The music video, also directed by Martin Holmes, has surpassed 20k views in a little over a month and is still climbing! So if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you check it out now!

Hello, hope everyone is doing well out there! 

Things have been very busy at Godsticks HQ, and if you've been following our social media pages recently you've seen us recording lots of new music ideas, for our new album! We'll be sure to give you more about that soon... 

But now that things are much more back to normal in the world, we can finally give you some live gig news! On the first weekend of July we'll be playing at not just one, but TWO U.K festivals! Our first stop is Prog For Peart; the charity prog festival held in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, raising money for brain cancer research in memory of the late great Neil Peart. We'll be playing on Saturday July 2nd at 4:00pm - info and tickets are available here: 

(Dan and Gavin recently joined ProgAxia and some of the members of the other great bands playing at PFP for this cool video interview looking ahead to the festival - check it out here: ) 

Then the next day, we'll be heading up to the Newark Showground to play at Tech Fest! It was originally meant to take place in 2020, so naturally we are so excited to finally get our chance to perform there!
