God Mother Signs With Party Smasher Inc.

Founded in 2012 in Stockholm, God Mother churns out an electrifying sound inspired as much by the grinding speed of Nasum and Rotten Sound as by the almighty weight of the Melvins. The band’s 2015 debut “Maktbehov” was hailed by Pitchfork as “an asteroid crash of an album that renders most of its competition extinct.”

Consisting of frontman Sebastian August Campbell, guitarist Max Lindstrom, bassist Daniel Noring, and drummer Michael Dahlstrom, God Mother packs hardcore, grind, sludge, and noise into lethal projectiles, fueled by bilingual lyrics denouncing society’s ignorance in both Swedish and English.

The band has now caught the eye of none other than Party Smasher Inc. founder and The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman.

Weinman states: “For some reason, out of all the European countries producing independent punk and heavy music, it was always the bands from Sweden that made the noise even us arrogant pricks in the United States had to notice. To be completely honest, after 20 years of touring the world and playing thousands of shows with thousands of bands, it is hard to impress me. But Sweden has done it again. God Mother is an undeniable force majeure that demands attention like bands did in the old days, by just being that fucking good. Torch, officially passed!”

Drummer Michael Dahlstrom says this about the signing: “We are super excited and proud to be part of the Party Smasher Inc family. Ever since we started talking about signing earlier this year we have felt extremely welcome. We played the Party Smasher showcase at SXSW and we are supporting The Dillinger Escape Plan around Europe this summer. Party Smasher Inc is a place for creativity with a great DIY attitude that we can relate to, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about releasing our new album here.”

God Mother’s upcoming sophomore album will be released on Party Smasher Inc. this fall. The group will also support The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Number 12 Looks Like You on a European tour in August:

Aug 8 – Nuremberg, DE @ Hirsch
Aug 9 – Jaromer, CZ @ Brutal Assault Festival
Aug 10 – Krakow, PL @ Kwadrat
Aug 11 – Budapest, HU @ A38
Aug 12 – Zagreb, HR @ Mochvara
Aug 13 – Vienna, AT @ Szene
Aug 14 – Prague, CZ @ Palac Akropolis
Aug 15 – Cologne, DE @ Gloria
Aug 16 – Leipzig, DE @ Conne Island

Dillinger Escape Plan Involved In Serious Bus Collision While Touring Europe

While touring across Europe in support of latest album “Dissociation” (reviewed here), The Dillinger Escape Plan has been involved with a major accident. According to the band’s vehicle crashed while traveling to Krakow. ITV reported:

Aneta Wlazlowska, a spokeswoman for Radomsko police, said the band members were not seriously hurt but were taken to hospital for further tests. She said the most injured person in the crash was the driver of the lorry that hit the band’s tour bus, which was parked partly on the road and hard shoulder. The New Jersey band were due to play in Krakow on Sunday, but the gig has been cancelled.

Following the initial news, Metal Injection issued this statement after speaking with DEP’s Ben Weinman:

I spoke with Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman about the current situation, and he said “Everyone is alive, a few injuries, but it could be much worse.” He explained that the bus was hit from the back, with the truck smashing through their gear before continuing to plow into the bus itself. The impact was serious and banged them up pretty good. The whole situation sounds horrific.

Unfortunately, it seems as though the fate of the band’s gear was not as lucky as the members, as you can see from the phone photo Ben had sent. Needless to say, the show in Krakow has been canceled. No word yet on what will happen with the rest of the tour. The next scheduled show is this Tuesday in Germany. We’re just happy everyone in the band is alive, and wish them a speedy recovery!

We’ll update you with more info when a statement is officially released from any of the Dillinger Escape Plan channels.
