Californian stoner metal lords Sasquatch have announced three huge Aotearoa headline events as part of their September tour of Australasia. The shaggy riff monster trio of founding vocalist / guitarist Keith Gibbs, bassist Jason “Cas” Casanova and drummer Craig Riggs will be hitting stages in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, joined for every show (in NZ and Australia) by local primal rockers Pieces of Molly. Sasquatch have made their mark with five fuzz-fuelled classic long players over more than two decades so far, with new album Fever Fantasy being unleashed on 3rd June — don't miss Sasquatch bringing their lumbering epic anthems this coming spring...

Press release:

Californian Stoner Rock Legends ‘Sasquatch’ will make their way back over to Australia and will finally make their debut in New Zealand this September to celebrate the release of their latest album “Fever Fantasy”.

Christchurch based Primal Rocker ‘Pieces of Molly’ will join them on all dates where they will hit the cities of Southport, Brisbane, Sydney, Katoomba, Wollongong, Canberra, Frankston, Melbourne and Adelaide, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

For over 20 years, Los Angeles power trio Sasquatch have been an institution among fuzz heads and those willing to groove. Their early work on 2004’s self-titled debut, 2006’s II and 2010’s III took them through line-up changes but found them unflinching in their purpose toward modernizing the classic heavy rock of their youth, and with 2013’s IV and 2017’s “Maneuvers”, their maturity — such as it is — has seen no let up in urgency.

Founding vocalist/guitarist Keith Gibbs, bassist Jason “Cas” Casanova (ex-Tummler and Behold! the Monolith) and drummer Craig Riggs (Roadsaw, Kind) recorded Fever Fantasy late in 2019 with NY-based producer Andrew Schneider, and have held back releasing it until conditions permitted touring, and having already been to multiple continents and reaped the reward of a dedicated, still-growing fanbase, they look to 2022 and beyond as a chance to build on the accomplishments that have made them one of their generation’s most heralded American heavy rock bands.

It’s been five long years since Sasquatch powerhoused their way through Maneuvers, their last LP and its been 3 long years since the trio hit Australia; but finally we can celebrate with these Rock n Roll Riff Slingers again this September.
