Out Now On Venn Records

UK tour dates with Rough Hands, Sworn Enemy, King 810 and Puppy

15th October 2018
Merseyside’s God Complex have released a video for their brutal new single Slumlord. The track is taken from their debut EP Created Sick, out now on Venn Records

Slumlord is three minutes of hatred, directed towards the amoral tyrants of the housing market,” says vocalist Harry Rule, “Steeped in malice, it draws from personal experiences of being chewed up and spat out by the rental trap

The track follows previous single Breeding Filth, which has seen support from Metal Hammer and Revolver magazines.

Produced by Loathe’s Erik Bickerstaffe, Created Sick explores both personal and political messages, examining issues such as the war or personal struggles with violent and disruptive relationships. The EP also encompasses God Complex’s undeniable growth this past year, whilst screaming with the potential to come.

We see people growing more enraged as the World becomes more polarised in the face of numerous man-made threats. We want our music to be a catharsis for anyone who listens, as well as a wake-up call from passively accepting what they’re experiencing. Once you accept that you’ve been handed a set of circumstances that are impossible to overcome, and you realise the expectations society places on you are based on a set of outdated ideals, it is easier to open your eyes to the morally bankrupt side of the human race.

This sort of subversive attitude ultimately influences how we want to style ourselves. The goal we all have is to craft an image that is in your face, that’s echoed in the lyrics of each track.  No subject is off limits to us and we leave no stone unturned
– Kyle Holt, guitarist

Despite only forming just last year, God Complex have worked tirelessly to craft a demolishing and blistering sound, combining elements of punk and hardcore with a raw and dirty aesthetic. Standalone singles Hate Runs Through Me and Insignificant garnered support from Metal Hammer, Decibel and Metal Injection. Off the back of these singles alone, God Complex were invited to tour with some of the finest UK underground bands such as Employed To Serve, Venom Prison, Holding Absence and Lotus Eater

God Complex’s live show is pulverising and intense. Catch the band on the road with label mates Rough Hands later this month, before they join Sworn Enemy, King 810 and Puppy on select shows.
