Stoner rock legend John Garcia (Vista Chino / Kyuss) has just announced another legendary musician to be working with him on Garcia's upcoming solo record: Guitarist Robby Krieger of The Doors!
"To have Robby Krieger from The Doors play on my first ever solo record was surreal. Not only was it surreal, but to be the first artist ever to record in his brand new studio Horse Latitudes in Los Angeles made it even more special. I am honored, and humbled by his professionalism and talent and will never forget that experience for the rest of my life......it truly made the song "Her Bullets Energy" better, not to mention the entire record." comments John Garcia.
The hotly anticipated solo album by John Garcia coming out end of July on Napalm Records!
Swedish fuzz rockers Truckfighters are to unleash limited edition vinyl EP via Last Hurrah Records; preorders now available
BAND FICTION: Truckfighters were employed to wrestle with a Skania long-haulage truck and trailer
Treading the trenches of heaviness somewhere between Fu Manchu and Queens Of The Stone Age, to hear Truckfighters is to hear the sounds of the desert; it's in their wide open expanses, grand open grooves and dust-caked metal riffs. You can hear progression and imagination; a band bred on the California badlands, on sprawling vistas and parched wilderness. The dynamic trio however hail from Örebro. Unafraid to plough their own furrow, Truckfighters have forged ahead and spend months on the road touring the world. Closing in on four-hundred gigs across four continents (Europe, Australia, and North and South America), being in front of crowds, sweat-sodden and crazed is where they are happiest. It's why a Truckfighters show is such a wild, free-form, charged affair.
The band's forthcoming new full-length is slated for release next year and includes the track "The Chairman," hence "The Chairman Special Edition" EP. Delivering over thirty minutes of pure power fuzz, the EP features the title track plus three live tunes -- "Desert Cruiser," "Monte Gangano," and "Traffic" -- all recorded while on tour in Australia. Presented at 45 RPM for best sound quality on a multi-colored vinyl 12-inch, "The Chairman Special Edition" EP comes in a full-color sleeve and jacket limited to 500 copies worldwide and only available from Last Hurrah Records. The jacket cover artwork has spot UV gloss, spot PMS, and silver metallic ink designed by artist Lindsey Kuhn and comes in two different vinyl colors: Desert Sunset and Desert Sunrise, each a mix of opaque and translucent colors (250 of each color).
Preorders are now available for the Truckfighters "The Chairman Special Edition" EP courtesy of Last Hurrah Records at THIS LOCATION where you can also check out a video for the title track!
