Desertscene in association with Snuff Lane are proud to announce the return of French stoner psych heroes Mars Red Sky to Camden's Black Heart on Monday 18th December. Not only that, they'll be supported by London's own doom 4 piece Gévaudan.

Founded in Bordeaux a decade ago, Mars Red Sky ignited a spark through in the stoner scene with thickly layered riffs and floating psyched out melodies. It was 2011, however, which saw the band ascend with the release of their eponymous debut full length. A shot in the arm to European psych, swimming in a different direction to the standard flow of the scene, MRS rightly earned the attention and support slots of mammoths of the underground, Kyuss Lives and Sleep. Following up with 2014's excellent Stranded in Arcadia, Mars Red Sky quickly became not only one of the hottest bands in the French stoner scene, but one of the most exciting in Europe.

By 2016's Apex III - Praise for the Burning Soul, Mars Red Sky had grown into a band unafraid to take influence from ever more delicate sources. Though don't be fooled into thinking the heavy root of Mars Red Sky's sound disappeared; the meaty hooks are still the foundations upon which the band builds.

Support comes from Gévaudan, who have been tearing up the UK doom scene since 2013. With influences ranging from the more stoner fare to black metal and NWOBHM, the band's unique take on doom is not to be missed.

An absolute treat to catch live, we couldn't be more hyped to bring Mars Red Sky back to London. Don't miss out, book your tickets today.

Desertscene, in association with Brooklyn Brewery, are proud to announce The Desertfest Tour. The six date tour, featuring desert rock legends Fatso Jetson and their drummer, Tony Tornay's new project, All Souls, will be criss-crossing the UK between the 23rd and 28th of January.

Founded in 1994 by Yawning Man's Mario and Larry Lalli, alongside Tony Tornay, Fatso Jetson were one of those few special bands at the very epicentre of the desert and stoner rock movements. With Yawning Man having already laid the foundations years earlier, and bands such as Kyuss beginning to build upon them, Fatso Jetson couldn't have been birthed at a more perfect time.

Forming their new band on those long after hours sessions in the Lalli cousins' bar, Rhythm & Brews, Fatso Jetson came to life. Whilst a similar core with their previous work was undeniable, the band set themselves apart from the pure desert rock of what came before by injecting elements of punk and surf. The rough around the edges tradition carried over into their first release Stinky Little Gods, but the pure sunshine was partially obscured by hints of a more uneasy vibe; that bit heavier, that bit darker and that bit louder.

Over two decades later, Fatso Jetson's place in stoner rock canon is earned via their impressive back catalogue, which includes the must listen Power of Three and 2016's phenomenal Idle Hands. We couldn't be more excited to be teaming up with them for a UK tour.

They'll be joined on all dates by All Souls, a relatively new project from FJ's drummer Tony Tornay. With a self described mission statement of blending Pixies inspired hooks and QotSA style riffs with a reverence to 80's darkwave, All Souls should be a perfect accompaniment for the tour. So make sure you don't miss out when this tour rolls through your neck of the woods. Book your tickets today.
