Uncompromisingly loud, energetic and acerbic, god bows to math are one of the hardest working and best live bands in New Zealand. Guaranteed to leave you jaw in a mess on the floor.

Biography

Having performed initially with what some would describe as an “experimental” musical project involving far too many effects pedals and keyboards, the core of god bows to math branched off into a new direction in 2008, beginning to create a noisier set of songs; much more aligned to their personal tastes of loud, fast and uncompromisingly DIY music and influenced by a mutual love and passion for bands like Mclusky, Melvins, Botch and The Minutemen (from whom the band lifted their name).

Since forming, the group has been one of the most pro-active members of the Auckland music scene, gigging everywhere and anywhere, sharing bills with bands spanning genres including indie (Die! Die! Die!, Street Chant, DHDFDs, The Sneaks), hip-hop (Dam Native, Misfits of Science), hardcore (Malenky Robot, Carthaginian), noise-rock (Mountaineater, Dean Roberts, TFF), internationals (My Disco (Au) Ouch My Face (Au) La Dispute (US)) and everywhere in between. Constantly championed as one of the hardest working bands in the country, the group have self-financed three national tours, driving from top-to-bottom, building a fan base in every major centre, and doing it all themselves.

For a group with the sound they exude, they’ve not been ignored by the music press either – a glowing review for their split with TFF in Real Groove Magazine ("god bows to math are a blunt instrument" - 4/5 Stars), the band have been covered by Rip It Up Magazine, interviewed by Troy Ferguson on 95bFM’s “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Wire” in Auckland as well as by RadioActive (Wellington), VBC (Wellington), Radio One (Dunedin), RDU (Christchurch), Christchurch daily newspaper The Press and a number of internet websites, publications, zines and blogs.

god bows to math are currently preparing to release their self-titled debut album through MUZAI records on November 7th. Recorded in Whanganui with Warner Emery (Double Ya D) and mastered by Jason Ward (Del Ray) in Chicago ‘god bows to math - the album’ is the culmination of three years of learning curves and constant touring.
