No Clean Singing is now streaming the new single from GODHUNTER‘s impending, guest musician-strewn Codex Narco – from which the proceeds from the album will be donated to Planned Parenthood – with the head-rush of the EP’s “Cocaine Witches & Lysergic Dreams.”
Provides No Clean Singing with the premiere, “We’re told that Codex Narco was influenced by the dramatic personal trauma that all the core members experienced in recent years, with the songs focused on dependency, depression, and loss as the driving factors. But as inward-turning as the EP may be in those respects, GODHUNTER remain keenly aware of what’s happening around them…”

Joining GODHUNTER‘s new stripped-down core lineup of guitarist/vocalist David Rodgers, drummer Andy Kratzenberg, and keyboardist Matthew Davis, Codex Narco features contributions from members of CHRCH, Demon Lung, Mountaineer, Thorne, Methra, and others. Codex Narco was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and features a cover of Tegan & Sara’s “Walking With A Ghost,” for which a video is being created to support suicide prevention. The record features artwork by Bailey Illustration and layout by Cool Ghoul Ltd. (Ethan McCarthy of Primitive Man).
Codex Narco will see digital release through Battleground Records and cassette release through Baby Tooth Records on May 19th, with all proceeds from the record being donated to Planned Parenthood; find preorders HERE.
Stand by for an official video from Codex Narco and more to see release in the days ahead.
In September of 2015, after finishing a successful US tour with Destroyer Of Light, several members of GODHUNTER amicably split with the band, simply moving on with more family commitments and unable to commit to regular touring. Within weeks of the lineup shift, the rest of the band began writing new material together through internet conversations and individual recording sessions, as remaining guitarist/vocalist David Rodgers, drummer Andy Kratzenberg, and keyboardist Matthew Davis, currently reside on opposite ends of the country, spread across Washington, Arizona, and Georgia. The remaining members recruited guest vocals from Eva Rose (CHRCH) and Josh Thorne (Thorne), bass from Adam Sage (Demon Lung), guitars from Clayton Bartholomew (Mountaineer, ex-Secrets Of The Sky), and vocal, bass, and guitar contributions from Nick Genitals (Methra) to take part in the record, much of it recorded at Homewrecker Studios in Tucson, with the additional material recorded by each musician at their hometown studio of choice.
