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.
