About Jesus and his Judgemental Father

Hailing from Leeds, U.K. pop punk four piece Jesus and His Judgemental Father formed after bonding over a love of punk, veganism, and queer and feminist politics. Being dismayed by the often misogynistic and homophonic lyrics of some pop-punk bands, the band -- Danny Gibbins (vocals, guitar), Sofia Hicks (bass), Sarah "Danger" Ward (guitar, vocals), and Flo Toch (drums) -- decided to play in a similar style but root their lyrics in their own socio-political thoughts. Having already been part of the underground DIY scene in their local city, the band quickly gained a keen following, and by the beginning of 2012 had recorded and released their debut album, Kings and Queens. Continuing to hold down day jobs and spending their time studying, the group still continued to play live and release tracks on various compilations. The False Sense of Maturity EP -- which was mainly acoustic -- appeared in early 2015. After waiting till they had enough new material, the group entered the studio to record their sophomore album. The resulting, It Might Get Better -- which was released on Specialist Subject --, dropped at the end of summer 2017. ~ Rich Wilson
