Today Basingstoke surf punks Small Gods release their new EP Last Wave through Everything Sucks Music. To celebrate they've also relased a new video for the song Resink.
Small Gods are a four-piece punk band from the hazy backwaters of Hampshire with bad backs and hearing problems, formed through a shared love of big riffs and overdrafts. Everything Sucks signed on the line to release their 4-track surf-influenced EP which is the band’s first ‘proper’ release, after 2017’s self-released demo, ‘Wake Up Dreaming’.
Last Wave is available on transparent snot green cassette and digital via Everything Sucks Music here: https://smallgods.bandcamp.com/album/last-wave
