Those who saw the gap in the upcoming CULT LEADER tour and considered trekking beyond RVA in early December, your patience has been rewarded! Hot on the heels of their newest Deathwish LP recorded at the legendary God City (with Kurt Ballou again), this Salt Lake City wrecking crew just released the pummeling "A Patient Man" and continue their chaotic and intense rollercoaster ride of extreme music. They'll be joined at STRANGE MATTER by a pair of similarly intense and heavy acts from all over the extreme music spectrum including Brooklyn's PRIMITIVE WEAPONS, a genre-defying act on Ben from Dillinger Escape Plan's Party Smasher Inc who feature ex members of a who's who of early emo/hardcore crossover and blend elements of post-hardcore, grunge, metallic hardcore and moe to make an original sound so killer. Rounding out this incredibly curated lineup, all the way from Stockholm come GOD MOTHER for the 1st time on U.S. soil.

All heavy/aggressive music comes from the same place. The biggest distinction that should be made between bands of this type shouldn't be by (sub) genrefication, but simply by how authentically and effectively they convey what they're trying to convey. Hopefully the sounds we make and the way we operate makes that point clearer than words can, but in case they don't, here are the words. This is where we are coming from, forever have, and forever will.

Mike Mason - GUITAR

Aggressive, energetic fast-paced hardcore seasoned with deathmetal, sludge and tasty breakdowns.

A four-piece powerhouse, from the depths of the Swedish hardcore underground, ‘God Mother’ has been a rising force since its inception in 2012.

God Mother's debut, Maktbehov, was easily one of Metal’s most exciting new releases in 2015, making many of the year’s top lists including Loudwire, Blunt Mag, Metal Injection, and was hailed by Pitchfork as "an asteroid crash of an album that renders most of its competition extinct.”

Across 14 tracks, God Mother’s Party Smasher Inc. debut, “Vilseledd,” out October 20th, 2017, packs hardcore, grind, sludge, and noise into lethal projectiles, fueled by bilingual lyrics denouncing society's ignorance, in both Swedish and English.

God Mother has so far toured South Africa and Central America each once, and Europe three times. The band has toured extensively with acts such as Cult Leader, The Number 12 Looks Like You and The Dillinger Escape Plan. In the summer of 2017 God Mother played the prestigious international metal festival, Brutal Assault.
