Gomez are a British band from Southport. Their first album, Bring It On, won the Mercury Music Prize in 1998. The band played their first gig together in late 1996 in Leeds, without a formal name. The band left a sign out for a friend of theirs named Gomez to indicate that this was the site of their first gig. People saw the sign and assumed that the band's name was Gomez - the name stuck.
The group released their seventh studio album, Whatever's On Your Mind, in June, 2011.
