[press release] Fuzz rock powerhouses Truckfighters are bringing their groundbreaking brand of stoner rock to the U.S. July 13-23.
Truckfighters is a stoner rock band from Sweden. After releasing EPs in 2001 and 2002, they recorded a split-EP with local Swedish band Firestone in 2003. In 2005 they released their debut album Gravity X on both MeteorCity Records and Fuzzorama Records. Their follow-up album, Phi, was released in 2007 by Poison Tree Records in the U.S. and on the Fuzzorama label elsewhere. Latest album is Mania where the band has a more progressive sound. Over the years Truckfighters have moved from classic stoner to progressive/alternative metal/stoner. Their sounds has been described as classic desert rock similar to bands like Dozer, Fu Manchu (with whom they have toured), and Kyuss. They have been featured on the MTV Sweden show “Fuzz”.
Truckfighters will be joined for most of their U.S. dates by Cincinnati, OH band Valley of the Sun. The tour will stay on the east coast/Midwest. Booking of the tour has just begun, any inquiries should be directed HERE.
