The Atomic Bitchwax
THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX is an American rock band from Long Branch N.J. formed in 1993 by bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik, guitarist Ed Mundell and drummer Keith Ackerman. Their music is a combination of 60s psychedelic rock, and 70s riff rock filtered though the progressive rock influences of today. This lineup released two full length records together "The Atomic Bitchwax S/T" in 1999, “TAB 2" in 2000, and the odds and ends EP "Spit Blood" in 2002.
In 2005, entered guitarist/vocalist Finn Ryan. With him on board, TAB focused on writing and touring for about a year before entering studios to record their follow up, the aptly titled "TAB 3". The 2005 release was followed by two European and North American tours with a stop in Seattle Washington's "Sound House" to record the 2006 EP "Boxriff".
Two years later, in 2007, Monster Magnet's drummer Bob Pantella joined TAB and more touring follows throughout the year ending with the recording and release of the 2008 "TAB 4". This current lineup's latest work includes the 2011 release of "The Local Fuzz" boasting one 42 minute track of over 50 riffs back to back. 2012 and 2013 brings the bands road show to Australia, New Zealand, England, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and North America.
In April 2015, TAB released their 5th album "Gravitron" on Tee Pee Records, and toured in Europe during the spring! Fuzz on Bitchwax! (SOL)
1000MODS is a psychedelic/heavy rock band from Chiliomodi, Greece. They formed in the summer of 2006, and since then they have played over 150 live shows, sharing the stage with bands like Graveyard, Brant Bjork, Colour Haze, Karma to Burn and many more. They are known for their commitment to vintage equipment, thick and heavy analog sound and remarkably passionate stage performances.
In October 2010, the almighty Billy Anderson visited Greece in order to produce the band’s debut album, while Malleus Rock Art Lab took care of the artwork. "Super Van Vacation" was born. In order to promote their debut album, they played 40 shows in 15 countries around Europe, including festivals such as Desertfest, Up In Smoke 3, Rockwave and Lake on Fire.
After two successful European tours, the band was ready to get down to work again. Their experiences and growth paved the way for their second album: "Vultures" was released in May 2014, and "is everything Stoner Rock should be!" (HP Taskmaster - The Obelisk).
More European shows were played in the fall 2014, with highlights at Desertfest Belgium, Keep It Low and Blue Moon Festivals, and now in 2015, 1000MODS are ready for the next run! (SOL)
