Rikard Sjöblom’s Gungfly announce UK co-headline live dates with Cosmogra

Rikard Sjöblom’s Gungfly are pleased to announce they will come to the UK for 3 select live dates in October 2020. The band will play London & Manchester, co-headlining alongside the Robin Armstrong-led Cosmograf, before continuing on to Summer’s End Festival.

Rikard comments: “When I think on how much I’ve played in England over the years, it’s really strange that Gungfly as a band haven’t been over yet! So to say that we’re ready and willin’ is kind of an understatement! We’ll probably even bring some new tunes for you. Robin Armstrong and I of course know each other from our time in Big Big Train together and we thought this would be a nice mix to do a few dates with – don’t miss it!” Continue reading →

Godsticks – Premiere New Track & Video For “Surrender”

Godsticks – Premiere New Track & Video For “Surrender”

Taken From Their Forthcoming New Album Inescapable

With the new and most accomplished album to date Inescapable due out on 7th February, Godsticks present their second single and video “Surrender”.

Godsticks’ Darran Charles divulges his inspiration for the song “I suppose Surrender is a lyrical re-enactment of conversations I’ve had with myself about not surrendering to the obsessive and controlling parts of my personality. I used to believe that my obsession to ‘achieve’ at all costs was both the key to success and the fuel for ambition but as the years went by, I found that I’d become so focused on achieving goals that I forgot the reasons I’d set them. A good example of this is playing live: I used to be so obsessed with being able to perform a perfect rendition of every song each night, that I forgot to be in the moment and enjoy the experience.
