In celebration of the release The Chairman Special Edition EP from Swedish fuzz rock contingent, TRUCKFIGHTERS, today the gatekeepers at Blow the Scene offer up a stream of “Monte Gargano” alongside a killer photo set of the band demolishing Philadelphia last August courtesy of Useless Rebel Imaging.
Rock out with your blocks out at THIS LOCATION.
To hear TRUCKFIGHTERS is to hear the sounds of the desert; it’s in their wide open expanses, grand open grooves and dust-caked metal riffs. Falling somewhere between Fu Manchu and Queens Of The Stone Age, TRUCKFIGHTERS are a band bred on the California badlands, on sprawling vistas and parched wilderness. The dynamic trio however hails from Örebro. Unafraid to plough their own furrow, TRUCKFIGHTERS have forged ahead and spend months on the road touring the world. Closing in on four-hundred gigs across four continents (Europe, Australia, South America and North America), being in front of crowds, sweat-sodden and crazed is where they are happiest. Commended by Terrorizer for, “putting more rock energy into a single performance than a good proportion of bands do into a career’s worth of shows…,” a TRUCKFIGHTERS performance is a wild, free-form, charged affair.
With that in mind, Last Hurrah Records brings fans The Chairman Special Edition EP. Delivering over thirty minutes of pure power fuzz, the EP features the title track (“The Chairman,” to be featured on the band’s forthcoming 2014 full-length) plus three live tunes – “Desert Cruiser,” “Monte Gangano,” and “Traffic” – all recorded while on tour in Australia. Presented at 45 RPM for best sound quality on a multi-colored vinyl 12-inch, The Chairman Special Edition EP comes in a full-color sleeve and jacket limited to 500 copies worldwide and only available from Last Hurrah Records. The jacket cover artwork has spot UV gloss, spot PMS, and silver metallic ink designed by artist Lindsey Kuhn and comes in two different vinyl colors: Desert Sunset and Desert Sunrise, each a mix of opaque and translucent colors (250 of each color).
