“Gnod use their noise and their distortion in a way that suits the contemporary political atmosphere”– The Quietus

Since their inception, Gnod’s musical trajectory has been one of constant fluctuation borne out of an incessant need to discover new sonic worlds. Beginning life as a shamanic drone ensemble, at times fitting up to 15 members on stage, these early rituals informed the core ideals that have come to define the group in their years of activity; community and trance-inducing repetition. Throughout a discography that has amassed dozens of CD-R’s, cassettes and vinyls for labels like Rocket Recordings, Trensmat, Krokodilo (Blackest Ever Black) and their own Tesla Tapes imprint, their exact same dedication to the live arena has seen Gnod become one of the most celebrated live bands in the UK, we are delighted to welcome them back to the Supersonic stage.

The current live incarnation of the band is characterised by a crushing, cataclysmic new protest music whose call to arms gravitas offers a meaningful defiance to Austerity Britain. Gnod have taken their very namesake and charged it with a bludgeoning, euphoric new edge.
