New Drummer Announced
The band have officially announced today the permanent recruitment of Robin Goodridge as their new drummer. In a statement on their site and myspace they said,
Drum Roll, Please...
After months of world-wide speculation, it is with great pleasure that Stone Gods would like to announce that permanently joining us on Good Ship SG, is one Robin Goodridge.
Of course it is!
The very same feller that so ably rescued us back in June, will be sat behind the drums as a full-time Stone God. He was instantly part of the gang back then and fired us up to the point of health and safety issues, so there was really no other choice. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, though, to the literally hundreds of drummers from all over the globe offering their services. It was quite overwhelming, it really was.
Three cheers, then, for Robin and here's to the future- it's so bright we're all wearing shades!
Peace, Love and Rock N' Roll
The Temple would like to take this opportunity to welcome Robin to the fold. Great to have you!!

Ever looking to bring you all new and interesting Stone Gods information, we are pleased to be able to let you know of an addition to our site.
As every Stone Gods fan is aware, there are more than just four outstanding musicians that makes the Stone Gods world turn. Behind the scenes there is a dedicated crew of experts who excel in bringing the best out of our lads and whose commitment to Stone Gods is unquestionable and admirable!
Check out our new page, The Archangels, (or via The Gods page) the workers of the SG team and find out more, including a brand new and exclusive interview with Dan's studio partner in crime, Nick Brine.

The band have confirmed the Barfly Birmingham gig - Emma Scott presents and have also revealed their drummer for the evening will be none other than Stuart Cable (ex Sterophonics, recently Killing For Company, Kerrang! Radio DJ and the subject of Jeff Collins' latest biography.) An amazing drummer with lots of experience. Should be an awesome night. Update flyer as from today..
29 July 2008
Ed leaves the band
From the Stone Gods official Myspace: "It is with very heavy hearts indeed that we have to announce the permanent departure of drummer and founding member Ed Graham from Stone Gods.
Unfortunately Ed has been physically unable, for a number of reasons, to fill the stool-position for some time and won't be able to refill it any time soon. Right now being in a rock band is simply not the best place for him.
It's been horrid and heart-wrenching realizing and coming to terms with this fact, but we all have to move on in order to keep this thing going. There is too much passion and love involved from us and from you, our loyal fans, for us to simply draw the shutters and shut up shop.
We realize that there will be some very disappointed and saddened people out there as a result of this, but let us assure you that we are amongst you. Now, more than ever, we all need to pull together and be positive about the future. I promise, it looks pretty darned bright once you see through the fog.
Unfortunately due to all of this, we will be unable to appear at Wacken festival, which is a terrible but unavoidable shame. There's a lot of that going around at the minute. Still, we're keeping our chins up and so should you! We're taking on the world regardless.
We thank you all, from the bottom of our collective heart, for your ongoing and invaluable support. You guys rule.
As always, love, respect and horns raised firmly aloft,

iTunes and more
From the 26th of May through to the 22nd June, exclusively through iTunes UK, you will be able to download three album tracks: Knight Of The Living Dead, Defend Or Die and Makin' It Hard. This is so y'all have a little extra from us because we think you deserve it!
It'll work like this: when you buy one or more tracks from this 3 song bundle, the ISRC codes are logged so if you go back to buy the full album in this way, you'll get 79p, per track, off the cost of the album proper. How cool is that?
Extra fun arrives on the 23rd of June when the single Knight Of The Living Dead with it's b-sides, Goodbye and Pretty Ugly will go live in all UK digital shops too.
So get yer clickin' fingers at the ready and your headbangin' boots on. The beginning is nigh!

Stone Gods have gear lifted at first gig
Two guitars, a wireless beltpack and some accessories were stolen from the Stone Gods first gig of its first UK tour at the Fleece & Firkin in Bristol on January 17th. The Stone Gods consists some members of the former Darkness rock group and had just embarked upon its first tour of the UK. Due to the commitment of the touring schedule, the band was unable to alert the public to the crime until their tour was completed last week.
The items stolen are:
Gibson Explorer (black) Serial no 00652369 (inc Gibson case, strap & Sennheiser wireless beltpack)
Hohner Acoustic (blueburst) serial number TBC (black plastic case)
MI Pro was alerted to the crime by Graham Ettrick of S Johnson & Co, the providers of the MIA endorsed Cover Notes insurance scheme for MI stores, suppliers and musicians.
Should anyone come into contact with this equipment, or if you have any information regarding its whereabouts, you should contact Ettrick on 0121 327 1977 or email@example.com. He will then pass any info on to the Avon & Somerset Police.
That's what it says on the site. If anyone does know anything, we suggest you contact the lads' myspace or Adi Vines as well.
Thank you to those nice Amazon people! You don't have to buy it from them, but have a listen to a snippet or two.
Available 25 February 2008... Preorder it now!
SERPICO DRUMMER'S HAND INJURY CAUSES THEM TO MISS FURTHER SUPPORT GIGS
From the band's MySpace:
Really sorry, but it looks a lot like we're going to miss all of the following gigs:
I cannot apologise enough and tell you how pissed we all are at having to miss these shows. This was gonna be my first time playing in Oxford, which was gonna be really special for me, and obviously we love Nottingham and we know that people were turning out in force for that show.
However, we've got to think about Jonny's long term health and if it's a case of missing a few shows and his hand healing properly, or doing them and this becoming a recurring injury or giving him arthritic fingers in a couple of years then it would seem to be the lesser of two evils to miss the shows. Again, we've got to consider the recording too - everyone wants us to make the best record we possibly can and so we need everyone 100% for that.
We will be looking to rejoin the tour in Portsmouth on Sunday night.
Anyone who was coming just to see us at these shows please get in touch and if you can make it along to any of the other gigs then i'll do my best to guestlist you for them. Either that or next time we're in town :)
SERPICO FORCED TO PULL OUT OF SHEFFIELD SUPPORT
From the band's MySpace:
Really sorry to have to say we're gonna have to pull out of supporting Stone Gods in Sheffield tomorrow - we enjoyed the gig at the Corporation so much last time, we were really looking forward to another trip to the Steel City.
Unfortunately last night Jonny suffered a rather painful ligament tear in one of his knuckles. He soldiered on through the gig last night in Newcastle, but having spoken to doctors today they've strapped it heavily, given him painkillers and said he's got to rest it for a few days to let the injury heal.
Obviously we've got to consider that we're recording in just over 10 days time and so we've got to be sensible and try to protect it as much as possible.
On the bright side, we have a day off today and he should be good to go by Birmingham and hopefully we should be able to carry on the tour as normal.
So big apologies to anyone coming to the Sheffield gig, hopefully you'll be able to catch us again soon!!
