Stockholm mathcore/grind outfit God Mother have announced the release of their sophomore full-length album. The record, which follows 2015’s Maktbehov, will be titled Vilseledd and will be released on September 29 via Party Smasher, Inc. Label founder and The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman said this of the band:
“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!”
