Jesu’s new five track EP’s expected release day has changed. Originally Never was supposed to be released today. The band has since delayed the release until this Friday.
The reason that Jesu has pushed back the release date is because they are waiting for July 3 for the EP to be available on Bandcamp. This Friday July 3 Bandcamp will be having a “No Fees Day” where one hundred percent of the profits will go straight into artists pockets. The deal of Friday July 3 will help artists who’s incomes have been affected by COVID-19.
Justin Broadrick’s new release, coming out Friday, will be the first solo project that he has put out since 2013. Broadrick also has his own label called Avalanche Recordings that he released an album with his band Godflesh on. Godflesh released their last studio album back in 2017 and went on a small tour back in the winter of 2018.
Justin Broadrick, the bands creator shared about the reasoning for the delay today on twitter.

Godflesh released their first album back in 1988 and back in 2017 they released their album post self. The album itself is a unique expression of music mxdwn reporter Joe Weigell says, “The thing about the songs on Post Self is that they’re not necessarily what most people consider “songs,” but they evoke feelings of fear and anxiety that are not replicated in any other music today.”
Back in 2018, Godflesh also performed at day 2 of Psycho Vegas festival, where they performed with Goblin and Batushka. The Psycho Vegas festival is a festival where fans and artists of the metal rock genre can come together and rejoice in music by their favorite bads.
