Swedish fuzz merchants Truckfighters are heading our way for the first time in May. Touring New Zealand on the back of Cherry Rock in Australia, as are Unida who were announced to be coming last week, they are due to release a follow up to their last full length, Mania (2009), this year but details remain, well, fuzzy at this stage.

If you're a fan of Josh Homme then take his advice and don't miss the 'best band that ever existed' - here are the tour details and we have limited earlybird tickets available right now exclusively online here  at UTR...

Truckfighters with support from Red Sky Blues

Here's the trailer for their Fuzzomentory released last year...

Press Release:

Swedish fuzz rock legends Truckfighters announce their first national tour of New Zealand. Their sound has been described as classic desert rock, similar to bands like Dozer, Fu Manchu (with whom they have toured), and Kyuss.

With three classic stoner rock albums, a documentary - a “fuzzomentary” – released in 2011, and tours across Europe, USA and South America under their belt, Truckfighters have been blowing away audiences since 2001. The three piece from Örebro, Sweden have been hailed for “putting more rock energy into a single performance than a good proportion of bands do into a career's worth of shows...” – Terrorizor

”The best band that's ever existed” - Josh Homme

“Truckfighters blast your ears with their unique take on modern rock” - Metal Hammer

“...The power and charm to make society grind to a halt...“ – Kerrang

With a new, as yet untitled album set to be released this year, expect to hear some of the new riff-filled tunes from the face-melting kings of fuzz rock!

Truckfighters come to NZ for two insane shows in Wellington and Auckland this May.

Auckland – Kings arms Tuesday the 7th of May (Red Sky Blues and Guests)
Wellington – Bodega – Wed 8th May (support from Red Sky Blues and guests )

Tickets available from UnderTheRadar
