A MESSAGE FROM GNOD
Pheeeew, Gnod have landed back in Manchester safe and sound after a pretty mammoth couple of months playing. We cannot really express in words how grateful we are to all the good people that put us on, up and come to see us. We have made so many new friends and had to time to see old ones and it’s great to reinforce the fact that whatever kind of bullshit is going down in politics in the world that generally people are good and there is way more love out there than hate. Don’t believe the Hype machine, put your smartphone down for an hour and engage with the people around you in real time.
10 years of playing and touring with Gnod has brought us in touch with so many top class folks and this year we got to see a helluva lot of them.
