Sweden's God Mother have announced that they've signed to US label Party Smasher, founded by Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan.
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!"
The band originally formed in 2012 and previously released Maktebov in 2015. They'll join Dillinger Escape Plan on a European tour later this year and are expected to released the second album, and Party Smasher debut this fall.
