"EARTHLESS purvey majestic acid rock, a genre that bakes the neurons with industrious instrumentals. And this trio blisters more brain cells than most. EARTHLESS keeps even this interpretation ruggedly exploratory, moving with transcendent skill from classic rock badlands to heavy metal cosmos." - SF WEEKLY


Award-winning San Diego power rock band EARTHLESS, recently dubbed "expert practitioners of an outdated art" by the New York Times, released its long-awaited new album 'From the Ages' this past October via Tee Pee Records. The first new studio album from the globally celebrated trio since the release of 2007's critically acclaimed 'Rhythms from a Cosmic Sky', the hour-long double LP was recorded with producer Phil Manley (Trans Am, The Fucking Champs, SubArachnoid Space). 


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 has also occupied the drum throne in Rocket From The Crypt 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.





Gary Arce (Guitar) / Mario Lalli (Bass, Vocals) / Justine Ruiz (Bass, Guitar) / Bill Stinson (Drums)


YAWNING MAN was the sickest desert band of all time. Influenced by everything from the psychedelic to the folkloric, jazz, hard rock, roots punk, world music, the sound of this trio while hard to describe is visual and cinamatic, heavy and melancholy, driving and daydreaming.


Closely aligned to both the stoner-rock scene which adores them (despite their total lack of ‘Sabbath-like riffery), and the SST family of artists (Black Flag, Minutemen, Meat Puppets) which they are linked to, their highly vocal fan base runs the gamut from stoners to avant-rockers to even Julian Cope.


The YAWNING MAN song "Catamaran" was recorded by the influencial hard rock/ desert rock band Kyuss, on their 3rd album "And The Circus Leaves Town". The first full length LP from YAWNING MAN "Rock Formations" released in 2006 came almost 20 years after the bands organic beginnings, with Gary Arce on guitars, Alfredo Hernandez on drums and Mario Lalli on Bass.


They will release their new record "The Revolt Against Tired Noises" on July 6th 2018 via HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS, and will tour for 7 weeks this summer to promote it!!
