Lets Play God from Glasgow, Scotland were formed in 2005 by singer Rob Grinch and drummer John Coll. In between various line up changes the band made their first live appearance in 2006 at the now defunct Capitol whilst releasing several demos and e.ps, ‘Greatest Tits’, ‘In Us You Trust’ and ‘Demo 2011’. The latter of these was described by Planet Mosh as a "stunner of a debut album".
The 2011 release would catapult them into the UK music scene and saw them play numerous shows including Hammerfest IV (Anthrax, Chimaira), Metal Gods Festival (Arctic Flame, Evil Scarecrow), Hard Rock Hell Chapter (Firebrand Super Rock), Insane Championship Wrestling (filmed for TV) and much more.
The band released a self titled E.P in 2012 but were very unhappy with the results, a feeling that was generally shared with the LPG crowd. The band introduced John Urquhart (John2) on guitar, and immediately began re-recording the self titled with former bassist Chris Clarke at the engineering desk. The recordings surfaced on December 2012 which was released as "Revisited", displaying a much more ‘live’ feel unlike previous efforts, much rawer, much faster. Wasting very little time the band jumped back into recording with new material and 2 months later the band released ‘Survival Of The Twisted’ which was greatly received by fans and peers alike, maintaining the live, bouncy feel associated with the band, whilst maintaining a great production. The band then hit road for ‘The Tad Of Wrath’ and ‘May God Be With You’ tours, around this time parting ways with long time bassist Chris Clarke.
With a brash attitude towards the dying music industry and the desire to not allow obstacles get in their way, they currently maintain a ‘Do It Yourself’ attitude. This "Punk Rock" attitude is one of the core elements of the bands ethos and stands true through their lyrics and their lives. Their aggressive approach translates well to a high impact show which has been described as "No whining, no half-arsed efforts..." by Let the Music Do the Talking and a band that "Practically grabbed the crowd by the balls with their performance." by Planet Mosh.
Now more focused than ever, Lets Play God in 2013 aims to maintain the pace set for independent artists with numerous tours and releases scheduled ,
