Psychedelic Psychotic Preachers famed for their frenzied live performances that will make you stomp, and shake with their urgent and savage sounds.
Blending heavy blues, 60's psychedelia, and rabidly intense rock, Leicester’s GoldWater offer an unforgettable and energetic live performance that has to be seen to be believed. Live shows often descend into chaotic happenings as their wild, psychotic lead singer clambers through the crowd preaching over the urgent, thundering band.
GoldWater formed from the ashes of a host of Leicester’s top bands (The Dirty Backbeats, Ego Armalade, Moonlights, Platforms). In three short years, their unique, theatrical sound has helped them graduate from supporting the likes of Alabama 3, Urban Voodoo Machine, Skinny Lister, King King and Ferocious Dog to selling out hometown shows and storming a host of festivals.
The band have subsequently packed out every single hometown gig culminating with their biggest headline show at Dryden Street Social this October with Co- Headliners, Hell’s Addiction. 2018 has seen the band take their blistering live performances to new heights, spreading their wings with shows in Birmingham, Nottingham and Derby as well as headlining the Riverside Festival, Foxton Locks Festival, Barefoot Festival and performing a widely acclaimed mainstage slot at Off The Tracks, Simon Says Festival and Hockley Hustle.
2018 saw GoldWater release a savage slice of monolithic psychedelia – Warpath. This new single is an epic slab of urgent rock and roll described as Motorhead meets Motown and has been recorded at the famed Seamus Wong Studios, Leicester.

“Dressed in a fedora and colourful shirt, a bearded front-man prowls the venue from stage to floor to bar like the feral love-child of Jim Morrison and Iggy Pop. Spoon-feeding us this hefty dose of Slaves-esque riffs and ear-pounding drums are Leicester outfit GoldWater, who career through a muscular set of blues grooves, howling vocals and high-octane, crowd pleasing rock ‘n’ roll to take Birmingham by surprise.” Counteract Music Magazine
“A visceral shot in the arm is supplied by the psychedelic blues-rock of GoldWater, and one of the most engaging frontman around. If you've never been lambasted from on high by their flamboyant frontman, you're missing out.” Phil Bull – efestivals.co.uk
