Godsticks split with drummer Roberts

Godsticks have announced a search for a drummer to replace Steve Roberts.

He’s moving on for “logistical” reasons and the band are on the lookout for interested parties in a permanent or temporary basis.

Godsticks say: “We’re ideally looking for a long-term band member, but as we have a European tour coming up, supporting Tony Macalpine, short-term candidates are also being considered.”

Drummers are asked to email mail@godsticks.co.uk for more details.

Meanwhile, Roberts reports: “I parted company with the awesome Godsticks band – it was logistical more than anything else. Please check out their imminent release Emergence, though.

“I’m now available for any up-and-coming or established bands that may be looking for a drummer. Email me steverobertsdrums@hotmail.com.”

Emergence is launched on September 4.

Godsticks feature in the latest edition of Progout now in print, digital and via TeamRock+.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
