The Good Gods! - "Lying On Our Bright Red Backs" video

The Good Gods "Lying On Our Bright Red Backs" debut single available now

The Good Gods!

Hailing from Oxford, newcomers The Good Gods! are one of 2010s most intriguing new acts.

Fronted by the brilliantly named Tom Hatred (a man whose dulcet vocal tones you will have heard on the Noah & The Whale debut album), The Good Gods! are announcing their arrival on the music scene with one of the year's oddest videos.

The Good Gods on

"Lying On Our Bright Red Backs" sets the tone for summer Saturday afternoons. Building from a gentle introduction, the track gradually reaches a bass led crescendo, accompanied by Tom's elegant and instantly recognisable vocals:

"Will I ever get to see the sunshine?
Or will I forever burn my back?"

Clearly influenced by the exploits of comic book demon Hellboy, the video makes for compulsive viewing, and contains some marvellously bemused looks from a family out for a quiet afternoon bike ride.

Band members:

Tom Hatred aka Thomas Hatfield plays guitar, sings and writes all the songs. Started out with artists like Emmy The Great and contributing his dulcet tones to the first Noah and The Whale's album. Having done the circuit as a singer songwriter he set off with his first band Tom Hatred and The Angry Band before morphing into The Good Gods!

Ed Seed - multi instrumentalist, mainly drums and sings, and lends his hand to some of the arrangement of the upcoming album. Previously lead singer and drummer for The Mules, he has played with Left With Pictures and Fireworks Night.

David Hardy - Bass and vocals, occasional strange keyboard sounds. Dave was an original Angry Band member. When not playing, his skills as a broadcast sound engineer have landed him great gigs like The David Icke convention!

Duncan Brown - Guitar and Captain Sensible. The Good Gods! have recently co opted Duncan from The Mules to add style and substance together with his distinctive playing to both the live and some late interventions in the studio before the album is put to bed.
