Gospel Claws are an indie rock band from Tempe, Arizona. The band began in 2007 when lead-singer/guitarist Joel Marquard left the indie-pop band Dear and the Headlights to return to his day job as a delivery driver. But Marquard didn’t stop writing songs and amassed quite a catalog of new material. Marquard began collaborating with his friend, Sloan Walters, and the two recruited John Mulhern, Wesley Hilsabeck, and Scott Hall to fill out the band.
