On November 17 punk stalwarts GBH will release a new album Momentum on Hellcat Records. Momentum (Hellcat Records, to be released November 17) is the new album by punk stalwarts GBH. “We’re always looking forward,” says Colin Abrahall (vocals),”next gig, next tour, next album. For us, it is all about momentum. At this point if we stopped moving forward we’d just fall over”.
Momentum was recorded at Muther’s Studio in GBH’s hometown of Birmingham, England. Colin explains: “We laid down all kinds of takes on the songs which made the mixing interesting as we’d send it all off to Michael (Rosen – Engineer) and him and Lars (Fredericksen – Rancid) would send back tracks. You’d think something was maybe a glitch or whatever and it’d come back and we’d listen and think ‘that’s f*cking amazing! “
GBH formed in 1978 in Birmingham, England. The band have released 11 albums, including City Baby Attacked By Rats (1982, Clay), City Babys Revenge (1982, Clay), Midnight Madness and Beyond (1986, Rough Justice), No Need To Panic (1987, Rough Justice), A Fridge Too Far (1989, Rough Justice), From Here To Reality (1990, Rough Justice), Church of the Truly Warped (1992, Rough Justice), Punk Junkies (1996, We Bite), Ha Ha (2002, Go Kart), Cruel and Unusual (2004, Idol), Perfume and Piss (2010, Hellcat).
