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
Stone Gods

 

The Temple would like to take this opportunity to welcome Robin to the fold. Great to have you!!

Site Update

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!

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,

Stone Gods."

CONGRATULATIONS STONE GODS!!

Back in October 2006, Dan Hawkins took over his MySpace page and blogged assuring his followers that there was indeed life after The Darkness, that he was doing fine, and that he and Richie and Ed were far from down and out and had a new and exciting project up their sleeves. On that very same day, another guy blogged using the exact same blog title. His name was Toby Macfarlaine. An adding of  2 + 2 later and Christmas arriving, we were informed of the official breakup of the previous band and the formation of a new rock monster, as yet un-named. The band members were to be Richie Edwards, Dan Hawkins, Ed Graham, and said Toby Macfarlaine.

This collection of musicians, known at the time as only, "the new band" continued to inform us of rumblings afoot down in the depths of the Flatlands, of a small piece of the great English countryside being shaken to the core by thunderous riffs, pounding drums, causing rabbits to flee and the locals to shudder with fear! A new musical tornado was building from the storm of  four super-talented men's imaginations.

January 2007 and Dan informed the world that the big red button had indeed been pressed and recording had begun on the band's inaugural offering to the world and various reports from the skilled and ever illustrious Mr Macfarlaine's literary genius later, the album was completed, mixed and taken to foreign shores for mastering.

We learned during that time of the trials, bruises, eye injuries, fun, games, laughter and angst that went into the cooking pot to produce this legendary album. We fretted for them during the tough times, celebrated with them during their good times and on the very day they officially opened their website and launched their new name, STONE GODS, the Temple, who had been working alongside them since November 2006, opened our doors too, to all the fans out there who needed a spiritual home.

Today marks the pinnacle of their labours.

Silver Spoons and Broken Bones is an album of passion, pain, love and friendship. It's depicts the often brutal honesty of real emotions, the rawness of personal sadness, the joy of true brotherhood and the fighting spirit that is deeply engrained in the four incredible men that have created this work of art, not only within the lyrics, but within every resonant note and every grinding riff.

The best things in life don't come without hard work, sacrifice and determination. Dan Hawkins, Richie Edwards, Toby Macfarlaine and Ed Graham show the world, with this amazing album, that with all those qualities, anything is possible!

 

 

 

Dan Hawkins thoughts on one of his favourite young bands Yel Piracy!

Dan has shown once again his commitment to supporting the countries young and upcoming rock bands with a testamonial for the latest EP release for the band Yel Piracy. Dan says, "These guys totally rock, we need more band like this. The e.p sounds ace, really powerful gnarly riff rock!"

good job

Monday, February 25, 2008

Well, it's a good job the Burn The Witch EP is available for download.
Physical copies have, we discover on the day of release, already SOLD OUT!
Reports of great lines of rockers in tears outside Britain's record emporiums
are largely unconfirmed at time of going to press, but we all know it's happening.

God, you lot are quick. Well done!

Sorry to anyone left a bit disappointed, but thankfully the download version is
fully available (Clicky) and while
it doesn't contain all the caffeine of the physical format,
you'll find it's just as tasty as the real thing.

Love, respect and devil-horns-a-raisin',

Stolen Gear  

Ex-Darkness members have guitars stolen

From the miPRO site

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 graham@covernotes.co.uk. 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.

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:

Birmingham
Oxford
Nottingham

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:

Hey guys,

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!!

Mikey xx

The EP will include four tunes to get excited about, Burn The Witch, Breakdown, You Brought A Knife To A Gunfight.. and Heartburn, we haven't got a running order yet, but who cares! its four roll'aking tracks of great rock music and if you have checked out the bands website or the pernicious myspace page then you have already got the gist, the band are writing and playing exciting good time rock that will stick in your head long enough for you to chug along too and it looks like that they are writing anthem’s.. you know.. the ones that you can sing along to when standing on the roof of your neighbour’s car at midnight.

It's a glorious celebration of everything that makes loud, blaring rock 'n' roll so reliably exhilarating, this EP is a statement that the band are going to be around for many a long year, long live the Gods!

Richie Edwards: Voice/ guitar
Dan Hawkins: Guitar/ bv's

Media Assault begins!

28 November 2007
The mighty Stone Gods began their media assault on the rock loving public with an exclusive interview with guitarist Dan Hawkins on BBC Radio One Rock Show. Dan chatted with Daniel P. Carter on Tuesday 27th November, discussing the origins of the band, their sound and the reaction of the hardcore fan base to their music. Listeners were also treated to the first ever play of one of the tracks from their upcoming EP, Burn The Witch, due for release in January 2008. Great interview which we are hoping to stream for those who missed it.
