JOHN GARCIA. He’s the founder & most distinctive voice of the entire Desert Rock genre.
If Rock’n’Roll is personified by the Stones and Pop music by the Beatles, then Stoner was born with Kyuss – reaching definitive cult status they do deserve worldwide ever since – before their three genre-defining masterpieces Blues For The Red Sun, Welcome To Sky Valley, as well as …And The Circus Leaves Town until their split in 1995.
After sharing a dream-come-true experience with fans in major festivals and great venues around the world fronting Kyuss Lives, legendary singer and frontman JOHN GARCIA recorded a follow-up to his legacy as Vista Chino with this critically acclaimed Peace LP. Next chapter, a long awaited intimate project: The solo album of JOHN GARCIA – a masterpiece by the most distinctive voice of the entire Desert & Stoner Rock scene – which has been released worldwide in summer of 2014 on Napalm Records, that Mark championed in his review “This collection of tracks is everything I could want from the man and is the perfect mix of stoner cool and driving desert rock that I have returned to again and again“.
To celebrate his new release, JOHN GARCIA will hit the stages for an extensive European tour which starts this week, not only presenting his solo record live, but also playing past and present: From legendary Kyuss songs off Sky Valley, Blues For The Red Sun, …And The Circus Leaves Town – including some rarities even Kyuss never played live – to Slo Burn, this tour will be a highlight and resumé of legendary tunes, that JOHN GARCIA has created in his career.
JOHN GARCIA will be now hitting the road with the following, fantastic musicians on stage: Ehren Groban – Guitar ( War Drum ), Mike Pygmie – Bass ( You Know Who ), Greg Saenz – Drums ( You Know Who, The Dwarves ).
Get ready, for one of THE most awaited tours in 2014: JOHN GARCIA ( ex- Kyuss, Vista Chino, Slo Burn ) – Live on tour, playing past & present!
