Generator’s touring network programme Mapped Out comes to an end after three years this May, and they sure are going out with a bang, saying goodbye in ear-bashingly brilliant style with explosive Wolverhampton two-piece God Damn headlining Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Saturday 14th and The Cluny 2 on Sunday 15th May. In partnership with Liverpool Sound City and Higher Rhythm amongst others, Generator presented Mapped Out as a means to link industry ready emerging talent to promoters in underrepresented regions, with previous tours featuring the likes of Kagoule, Ramona Flowers and local lads Boy Jumps Ship.

Final tour headliners God Damn released their debut album Vultures in 2015 to huge critical acclaim from the UK’s alternative press; a blistering, sonically diverse rollercoaster ride of sludge rock, grunge, 80s metal and psychedelia. Despite being a duo, God Damn pack one hell of a punch live, and rock royalty Dave Grohl agrees, having handpicked the band to support the Foo Fighters at Old Trafford last year. Also joining the final Mapped Out tour are Leeds quartet Weirds, whose dissonant psych rock points to a heavy Melvins influence. You might want to bring your ear plugs for this one…

God Damn and Weirds play The Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Saturday 14th and The Cluny 2, Newcastle on Sunday 15th May.
