Baby Godzilla ordered to change band name, now known as Heck

Baby Godzilla have gone and got themselves a shiny new name – say hello to HECK.

The Nottingham four-piece confirmed the news today, following what they’ve called ‘fairly conclusive and forceful instructions’ from the Japanese cinema giant.

In an official statement, the band – Matt Reynolds, Jonny Hall, Tom Marsh and Paul Shelley – said: “To all of the incredible people we have had the absolute pleasure of meeting, working with, playing with and playing to make no mistake; this is still us. We will never compromise and we promise you our undivided commitment, ambition and passion. Every drop of blood and energy we have belongs to you.

“This news is not presented with regret and although this wasn’t ultimately our long-term plan we are looking at this as an exciting new chapter. We press on, reinvigorated, focused and with more fire in our bellies than ever.”

Don’t fear the change, we’re here for you, get behind us.”
