In what has to be one of the most touching and heart-felt press releases to be given by any band ever, God Damn have decided to continue as a two-piece until their second guitarist Dave Copson has fully recovered from a horrible traffic accident.
Here’s an except of the statement which outlines the band’s plans ongoing:
“We finally have a set of songs that work in this format spanning the God Damn career so far, however some are impossible to play without our right hand man. We also have a couple of new songs which have been very much inspired by the way we play with Dave and this whole experience. The plan is that Dave will slip right back in as if he’s never been away and we’ll keep gigging as 2/3rds of the best band in the world until the time is right.”
You can read the full statement from the band by going to Counteract Magazine. We highly suggest you do as it’s bound to bring a tear to your eye.
God Damn play the following dates as a two piece:
August 6 – Buffallo Bar, London
August 24 – Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham
UK Scumscene wish God Damn all the best ongoing and hope Dave has a speedy recovery. We’re looking forward to the day he can rejoin the band.
