North Carolina’s ASG are currently celebrating their highest charting and most critically acclaimed album to date, their breakthrough release Blood Drive, which is their first for Relapse Records and fourth album to date.
Blood Drive is a killer sludgy, psychedelic, hard rock, and Southern (stoner) rock hybrid that brings to mind bands like Torche, old Queens of the Stone Age or Jane’s Addiction with a fierce Southern twang.
ASG write big groovy riffs and super catchy hooks. Frontman Jason Shi‘s distinctive melodic voice adds a poppy element with some gruffness thrown in for good measure!
Walter & Co can’t wait ’til ASG bring their straight up, big, bright sounds to Roadburn Festival 2014 on Thursday, April 10th at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, The Netherlands. ASG has always been a relentless live-act from the get go, and it will be an absolute delight to see the band effortlessly slip from swirling psychedelica to woozy stonerrock to big riffing, almost arena-like heavy rock to swampy Southern rock.
Roadburn Festival 2014 will run for four days from Thursday, April 10th to Sunday, April 13th, 2014 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
