gods and Queens

Robotic Empire has dropped a kick-ass debut from a semi-Brooklyn band (their myspace lists them as Philly-BK-Bethlehem) of kick-ass lineage. Gods & Queens is the new band from guitarist Jamie Getz of the fallen but ferocious Philadelphians Lickgoldensky (members are now in Lords, Javelina) and Versoma (with Mike Hill of Tombs/Anodyne, as well as members of Orchid and Saetia).

Recorded by Jason LaFarge (Devendra Banhart, Angels Of Light, Akron/Family, Khanate) and mastered by Nick Zampiello (Isis, Jesu, Converge, Torche), imagine Fugazi or an Am-Rep band drowning in a sea of shoegazy reverb and noise... panicking and thrashing, desperately trying to claw their way out.

Gods & Queens untitled debut record is out NOW on LP (with requisite CD companion) and Cassettes, but you can dig on two new tracks available for download above... check out the awesome "Untitled #3" and "Untitled #2" (yes, that's correct, seven untitled songs on one untitled LP) and get out to see the band ASAFP. They'll be at Union Pool in Brooklyn on December 12th. All tour dates are below.

In other ex-Lickgoldensky news, Javelina is currently touring the southeast and are scheduled to land in NYC on Dec 7th with Nachtmystium, Malkuth, Bloody Panda, and Velnias. The band is also working with Sanford Parker on a follow-up to their debut LP. Those tour dates are below too...

Lickgoldensky? I saw that band's lead singer gyrate on stage at Mr. Muggs Ypsi MI in 2002ish. Hadn't realized they were inadvertantly still around...

gods and queens were one of the guests at the 12 hour fucked up show, they half assed a bunch of fucked up covers, it was awesome, also their album rules

Great to see this band getting attention here. If you go to see them at Union Pool, BRING EARPLUGS!

LGS hasn't been a band for about 5 years. i think you took the posting info wrong. people from that band are in gods and queens and in javelina. i think everyone from the band is involved in other projects. eric plays in lords as well.

I understood that part. Just didn't know Lickgoldensky was a band referenced as such...they were much more *obscure*, or so I thought
