Group of Deviants is a revolving door recording project created by AJ Evans following the success of his cult hit 'I May Be a Stoner (But, I Ain't Fucking Stupid!) featuring Shaggs', (Anthony Kremski's alternate persona), knowing that he and Kremski would be working together on future projects and wanting to insure Kremski did not live in the shadows on future releases. A full year later Kremski returned to Evans, this time as a new guitarist and with the music that would become 'Running at Full Speed' and thus G.o.D. was cemented.
Kremski brought Patrick Lincoln over for a session and within five minutes the trio had written and recorded 'Just a Guy'. With Patrick, AJ found a solid lead and despite his still being new at playing guitar, Kremski proved to be a walking metronome rhythm guitarist. Evans then went to longtime collaborator and friend, John Phetteplace with the material and within hours Evans and Phetteplace had written 'Heavy-Hearted' and 'S.S.D.D.' for the project.
By the time the actual recording process had begun, the group had written over 17 songs for the first album.
Computer blow-ups and the loss of the data files cost the band dearly and after much inner turmoil a break was needed for everyone. So, while the other members went back to their lives thinking they had heard the last of Evans and G.o.D. Evans went to work piecing together what was to be their debut single from two years worth of sessions. 'ahh'; Released on April 1, 2011 as Evans' April fools joke on the band and the world, was met with great enthusiasm by his band mates and the general music public and industry.
Still on break, Evans recorded 'A Deviant Dubstep' as a gift to his partner and decided to keep the G.o.D. name alive he would release it under the band brand instead of as a solo record. Again, the enthusiastic response just fueled him further.
The final member, CJ Andrae, came in 2011 with the music that would become 'Take Me as I Am', but he had been called back to his hometown in Harrisburg and the sessions were again halted. Meanwhile Evans and Lincoln had worked on 'Silence Amanda', 'Free to Fly', 'Closed' and laid the basic tracks for 'Barbed-Wire Casket'.
Finally in January of 2013, while recovering from some personal issues, Evans went back into the studio completing 'Take Me as i Am' and 'In the Groves' for April release. "Take Me as I Am' pushed G.o.D. into the top ten for alternative rock band in Philly on Reverb Nation while 'In the Groves' on the heels of 'A Deviant Dubstep' has proven to be a formidable track and solidified G.o.D.'s ability to successfully jump genres.
As the band streamlines and goes through some face changes, Evans is focusing more on remastering his solo catalog for future release as a compilation.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls....
This is G.o.D.
