god's good soldiers


A healthy backbone of punk pop/power pop with the ability to fuse it all together with basic rock’n’ roll makes for an exciting listen.There’s lots to offer fans of all kinds of genres who find they have a common love for good rock’n’ roll.


Cristobal “Cris” Cordero has somehow survived playing music in Orange County for almost a decade without succumbing to the most prevalent artistic pit-falls the area has to offer: imitation, trend-worship, and lack of, for a better word, “Balls.” You’ve got to hand it to him; while starting out as a key member to a handful of rhythm sections as early as 15 years old, playing drums and/or guitar(s), he has become the frontman, the singer/songwriter/producer/engineer/drummer/hypeman and just about any other metaphorical hat you could think of, and it is as natural as rain on a Sunday morning. His first outing as a frontman and main songwriter, The Energy, garnered plenty of buzz around the OC as well as Hollywood record labels interested in his unique take on punk and rock & roll. Unfortunately, he found himself the only one in the unit hell-bent on making a mark in the crowded world of modern indie rock. The band dissipated, but not before a lesson was learned: Do It Yourself. Cris spent over a year writing songs, amassing microphones, writing songs, constructing sound-proof rooms, writing songs, mastering home recording software, a little surfing and finally, writing songs. Its been a long time coming for all the fans of his previous endeavors, but Cris Cordero has completed his first full length with his new band God's Good Soldiers, and it is a rock and roll juggernaut. With the help of friends Josh Jones and Randy Lyons to play rhythm guitar and drums, respectively, they even helped with the engineering and recording process. "Why Cant God Cure The Baby", being released through the Remember Artists imprint, is a trip through sweet, pop delicacies(“Its Not True” or the beautiful acoustic number “When It Comes”), thunderclap-like hard rock&roll, as well as frantic, beautifully discordant pop melodies a la Guided By Voices or Pavement ( “Im Going Home” or “Oh No” are great examples of the intelligent ear candy the likes of which hasn’t been heard coming from Orange County since….well, never). "Why Cant God Cure The Baby" brings the pain( in a good way, of course) and once listened to, you cant deny that God's Good Soldiers has amazing talent, not to mention their live show is as intense and heart felt as their recordings. But you’ll have to listen and see for yourself, now wont you.
