The Gods Themselves are a disco-punk band from Seattle, WA. Formed in 2014, the foursome craft modern dance rock songs evocative of the no-wave and new romantic movements of the early ’80s.
Vocalist/guitarist Astra Elane, vocalist/guitarist Dustin Patterson, bassist Cory Foster, and drummer Larry Joireman are longtime musicians whose callings were revealed in this collaboration. Exuding art-punk bravado, the band fashions illustrious club grooves mixed with seductive melodies. Raw angular guitars shimmer atop disco undertones as provocative lyrics by Elane and Patterson add tales of sexual encounters and self-confidence.
TGT releases its new EP “Glamour and Grime” on June 15, 2018. Check out “Marilyn Monroe”, their first single from the EP, out now on Spotify. The four-song EP comes on the heels of their 2017 album “Be My Animal”, featuring the anti-gentrification song “Tech Boys”. Paste Magazine says, “This track unsuspectingly crept into my head and it refuses to leave!” The catchy Seattle anthem has captured many a cheer and ear, including of television personality Anthony Bourdain, who invited the band to appear on his show Parts Unknown. In the “Seattle” episode, TGT made their exciting international television debut
