Desertscene are proud to announce Swedish fuzzonauts Truckfighters will be blasting through the O2 Academy Islington this December.
From the very moment ‘Desert Cruiser’ kicked in to open their debut Gravity X’ the stoner rock scene knew they were listening to something special. An iconic, reverberating, crunchy riff that introduced a flawless classic of an album. Their second and third albums Phi and Mania cemented Truckfighters legacy as fuzz masters; both albums brimming with the psyched-out riffs that are synonymous with the name Truckfighters.
In 2011, the astounding Truckfighters “fuzzomentary”, followed the band as they were touring Europe and recording Mania, committing to tape the perfect document encapsulating the essence of an underground rock band; the good times and the tough. 2014’s (inter)stellar Universe continued their upward trend as one of the most exciting bands of the European underground, expanding their sound and leaving you begging for their fifth; and we don't have long to wait. With a slated release date of September 30th, V, is sure to be another fuzzy classic of the stoner rock scene.
Whilst their albums are great, it's live where the band truly lay out their wares. Their full-throttle sets, including their hat-trick of shows at Desertfest London, have gone down in legend. Be sure not to miss out as Truckfighters heat up this winter.
