Gods & Aliens is a tried and true ever evolving story. They come from far and wide to blend together in the mediocrity that is life on Earth. They draw from the tales of the Gods and from the ever growing truth that aliens walk amongst us.
Their music ranges from emotionally visual lyrics of ages gone by intertwined with heavy guitar riffs, soaring leads and unforgettable melodies that push and pull on your dreams and memories. Mix that in with drums and bass that pound and grind together like a Rhinoceros stampede and you have Gods And Aliens music.
Their live shows are fast paced, in your face, soaked in sweat, like an I.V. drip of adrenaline causing heart palpitations. Once you've seen and heard them live, you will be like all the others...walking in as a skeptic and leaving as a believer in the power of their all American Hard Rock!
This is music for the Universe!
Conceived in the summer of 2011 as an email project between guitarist Guy Panza and singer Andrew Hieber, Gods And Aliens has evolved into a full blown American Rock Band. After recording a 4 song demo in the spring of 2012, the band embarked on a month and a half tour that took them from New York to Georgia, to rave reviews.
Upon the return to Pittsburgh, the band experienced line-up changes, as some members had reached their goals(Zak Colton, drums) and others goals musically had changed(Michael Barry, guitar). At a cross-roads, Guy and Drew reached out to original drummer Joe Cheeks and former Thought Industry guitarist, Christopher Lee Simmonds(bass) who added a driving metal edge to the aggressive melodic rock that had become the G&A sound.
As of the fall 2013, Gods And Aliens has recorded their first full length, and is preparing to release their debut record, A Close Encounter, with a tour being scheduled to support it.
