godfathersjukeboxcoverThe Godfathers will be releasing a digital single, 'I Can’t Sleep Tonight' on 12th February 2013.  


The single is The Godfathers' tribute to The Ramones. As Peter Coyne explains:


"They were a massive influence on myself and brother Chris in our teenage years and The Godfathers would not have been the kind of group we became without their guiding light. The Godfathers supported The Ramones on a 3 week tour of Europe back in the day and Joey used to come & see us every time we played NYC, so 'I Can't Sleep Tonight' really does come from our hearts."


Listen to the single below.


The Godfathers will release a brand new album entitled, 'Jukebox Fury' (their first full-length studio release since 1995) on the band’s own Godfathers’ record label distributed by Cargo Records on 25th March 2013. The band will also embark on a 23 date March UK tour with punk icons, The Stranglers.
