Wann: Back to Calendar 26. September 2016 – 27. September 2016 (all-day)
For the past ten years, Asteroid have been one of the trend setting bands in the independent psychedelic heavy rock community. With their origin in hard hitting stoner rock, they’ve constantly been adding more musical layers to evolve their own unique brand of rock. With inspiration taken from American and British Blues and Swedish folk music, the three piece always bring something new and fresh to the table.

Before taking a break in 2013, Asteroid released a split record in 2006, two full length albums in 2007 and 2009 and a 7″ in 2012, all very highly regarded within the psychedelic rock scene. The band has been touring frequently since forming in 2004 and have played a couple of hundred shows all over Europe, which has led to a huge following and an ever growing fan base.

After all these years together and all these concerts Asteroid is a very impressive act to watch live, where their genuine love for the music really shines through in every song. The trio is well known for making use of the entire musical spectrum with a rich and powerful musical energy that never leaves any stone unturned. Drummer Elvis Campbell leads with the hard hitting rhythmic foundation, which give Robin Hirse (guitars) and Johannes Nilsson (bass) room to freely explore their instruments in the wide and open sound. The two strong vocalists create beautiful harmonies together and the thoughtful lyrics ad the final touch.

In late 2015 the band finally decided that the break was over and started jamming together again. „And with the warm and heartening response from all of our listeners and friends from around the world, we knew that we wanted to do this again“, they all conclude. After a few shows in early 2016, including a pre-sold out show in Athens in February and appearances at both DesertFest London and DesertFest Berlin in April, the bands full attention will turn to writing and recording their next studio album. The highly anticipated „III“, scheduled release is mid-September.
Formed in the shadows of the Bavarian forest Limestone Whale have developed their very own approach to heavy psych blues – far beyond prevailing stereotypes.
The quartet combines the natural roughness of proto metal and psychedelic rock with straight 70ies inspired blues and hard rock. With their mixture of heavy riffs and refreshing melodies the young but yet experienced musicians create a vivid and stirring presence on stage.
Limestone Whale are definitely among the few bands who are able to revive the spirit of the golden age of rock music without trying to sound „retro“.
