Award-winning San Diego power rock band EARTHLESS has completed work on its brand new album From the Ages. The first new studio album from the globally celebrated trio since the release of 2007′s critically acclaimed Rhythms from a Cosmic Sky, the LP was recorded in San Francisco with producer Phil Manley (Trans Am, The Fucking Champs, SubArachnoid Space). An hour-long double LP, From the Ages will see an October 8 release date via Tee Pee Records.
Formed in 2001, EARTHLESS prides itself on creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking instrumental music inspired by an eclectic mix of German krautrock and Japanese heavy blues-rock. The Californian trio has dedicated itself to mastery of the mind-bending jam session, evoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath in equal measure. Named after a song title from vintage New York garage-psych band The Druids of Stonehenge, EARTHLESS‘ sound has been called “A sonic kaleidoscope of lava and lightning”, earning it the title of “California’s loudest band”. The group delivers “one of the best live shows in all of modern, heavy rock,” leading to one reviewer stating that the band’s “epic shredding harkens back to the days were psychedelic rock had balls the size of grapefruits and wasn’t afraid to take its listeners on a ride for which they may never return.”
Each member of EARTHLESS has done time in many other bands. Drummer (and former pro skater) Mario Rubalcaba currently plays in the hardcore punk band OFF! and Hot Snakes amongst many others. Bassist Mike Eginton played with Electric Nazarene and guitarist Isaiah Mitchell was most recently in Howlin’ Rain, has played with Nebula and Drunk Horse and also heads up the Bay Area band Golden Void. In the end, EARTHLESS is the musical rock that grounds the three musicians and now, after more than half a decade since the release of their last studio LP, EARTHLESS has returned and is out to prove — through sheer rock power — why they are considered the cream of the modern day heavy psych scene.
“We feel this is some of the strongest material that we have ever created and we cannot wait to get out there and share it with everyone in a live setting,” said the band when asked for comment. From the Ages‘ sprawling, epic cover art was created by renowned rock music poster artist Alan Forbes (Queens of the Stone Age, SWANS, Black Crowes) while the record’s surreal inner design was brought to life by the band’s own Mike Eginton.
The band was formed by Go Kurosawa (drums/vocals) and Tomo Katsurada (guitar/vocals) in the summer of 2012. Their early days were spent busking on the streets of Tokyo as a free music collective. A more permanent lineup was reached when Daoud (guitar) joined and they met Kotsu Guy (bass) while he was recording vending machines for his noise project. Go's brother Ryu (Sitar) joined upon returning to Tokyo after studying Sitar in Kolkata, India under the prestigious Manilal Nag. Their Self-titled record was released on August 20, 2013 by Cosmic Eye/Sound Effect records based in Greece.
Their second LP "Forest of Lost Children" was released on May 20, 2014 by Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records based in Brooklyn, New York. They toured the U.S. in April 2014 in support of the record with appearances at Desert Daze Austin Psych Fest Due to high demand their S/T record was reissued on Cassette tape by Burger Records and a new tape by the name of "Mammatus Clouds" was released on the eclectic Sky Lantern Records in Tucson, Arizona. "Mammatus Clouds" was pressed onto 12" LP by both Cardinal Fuzz Records (UK) and Captcha Records (US) in June 2014. The band continued to tour throughout 2014 and made their first appearance in the UK that October selling out several shows in London.
In 2015 the band toured extensively through Europe with appearances at Eindhoven Psych Lab and Duna Jam. Members of the band also started the record label Guruguru brain in 2015 to showcase the unique music scene in East Asia.
JJUUJJUU is an astral union, an arcane ritual, and above all, a conversation.
Harnessing an unspoken energy, the duo have exponentially blossomed from a sonic experiment to a forceful, telepathic dialogue of distinct-but-aligned vibrations. Releasing this dynamic on an expanding spiral of planned and impromptu live shows in the American southwest, the magnetism of the duo only continues to grow, along with its devoted, traveling coterie of entranced acolytes
