About the confirmed bands and artists for Sonic Blast 2021:
John Garcia & the Band of Gold
If desert rock had a voice, it would be the voice of John Garcia. After giving life to all the stoner rock movement, with the formation of his first band Kyuss, he was also part of several projects (such as Hermano, Slo Burn, Unida or Vista Chino), finally leading him to start his career at ground. Now, together with the Band of Gold, he is able to prove his strength again in the world of desert rock.
All Them Witches
The long-awaited and cherished return of All Them Witches, happens now in 2021. With six long-lasting albums, two live albums, four eps and countless singles, the band shows no signs of slowing down, even with the transition to power -trio. Your psych blues rock only intends to howl harder than ever.
Known as the multi-instrumentalist ambassador of Californian desert rock, the influence of Brant Bjork in the formation of stoner rock, as we know him today, has been quite striking. Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Ché or Vista Chino are some of the names he went through and left his mark. He started his solo journey from the new century, where he showed and continues to show all his musical personality.
The Witches quickly reached a place of worship within their underworld, with the release of their authentic debut magnum opus, still in 2006. Featuring respectable musicians (J Mascis on drums, King Tuff on vocals / guitar, Graham Clise on guitar and Dave Sweetapple on bass), these eternal psych stoner warriors return from the shadows to the stage, where no one can stop them.
Receiving the Causa Sui masters back, only leaves us with a growing anxiety of experiencing their entire musical experience again. Owners of a unique mix of psych rock, jazz and krautrock, this Danish quartet makes rare the moments when it presents the audience with its presence, always presenting something admirable and transcendental.
Bala have long been known for their destructive and contagious concerts. The loudest duo in A Coruña returns with their own sound, where the alternative, punk or grunge, come together in a devastating way.
Born in 2018, Psychlona emerge as a breath of fresh air in the world of pure stoner. This English quartet embarks on journeys of hot, space and fuzz-filled riffs, perfect for supporters of original stoner rock.
