Today it's time to get a bit fuzzy or what do you say, huh? The Swedish three-piece Truckfighters have released a EP last fall and a Video got released for the title track. And it was clear that i should have played it then but somehow it got hidden in the shadows and forgotten, but now during Christmas it has been played more than one time and it's time for them to finally be todays tune.
And hopefully soon i have the Vinyl version of the EP in my hand :) Both versions of course.
Oskar “Ozo” Cedermalm on bass/vocals
Niklas “Dango” Källgren on guitar
Andre “Poncho” Kvarnström on drums
Truckfighters was formed in Örebro, Sweden in 2001. After releasing EPs in 2001 and 2002, they recorded a split-EP with local Swedish band Firestone in 2003. In 2005 they released their debut album Gravity X on both MeteorCity Records and Fuzzorama Records. Their follow-up album, Phi, was released in 2007 by Poison Tree Records in the U.S. and on the Fuzzorama label elsewhere. Their sound has been described as classic desert rock, similar to bands like Dozer, Fu Manchu, and Kyuss. They have been featured on the MTV Sweden show "Fuzz". The band has done extensive touring over the years, playing more than 300 live shows, most of them in Europe. Their first USA tour, in July 2011, included stops in New York, Chicago, Detroit, and Cleveland.
The film Truckfighters by Joerg Steineck and Christian Maciejewski portrays the band's life. It was released in December 2011 and features interviews with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. The film provides an ironic, entertaining view of the three "ordinary" guys who transform into Fuzz Monsters onstage.
The band has announced a new album, Universe, for fall 2013, however it was pushed back to January 24th, 2014. As a teaser, The Chairman EP was released in October.
The upcoming album "Universe", it will be released through their own Fuzzorama Records. They’re taking pre-orders through PledgeMusic now, so click on the link and support the biggest fuzzers around this Universe.
