Yawning Man (Official)
https://open.spotify.com/album/63j1bHAkaHjUU6l6WyODiw

The aural experience that Yawning Man delivers on stage and through their recordings is like hearing a colorful kaleidoscope of polyphonic musical textures that is both graceful yet intense. Formed in the late 1980's between lifelong friends Gary Arce, Mario Lalli, Alfredo Hernandez and Larry Lalli, they are recognized and acknowledged as a key piece in the early development of the "stoner rock" genre along with being pioneers of the Palm Desert, CA heavy music scene. While their more commercial contemporaries leaned toward heavy riffs and hardcore punk, Yawning Man made themselves distinct with their favoring of reverb laced surf and psychedelic tones...the perfect blend of sound to encompass spacious atmosphere of the well documented "generator parties" of their area in the late 1980's. It was at these gatherings where they earned their bones by enchanting spectators with their seemingly endless free form instrumental sessions, which echoed through the barren, rocky landscapes of the Coachella Valley and beyond. As time passed, their legend grew with notable names of the Palm Desert music scene paying homage to the group through mention and praise, notably with Kyuss doing their own rendition of the Yawning Man track "Catamaran" on the ...And The Circus Leaves Town release. It wouldn't be well into the new millennium for any recordings to be made commercially available, only fueling their legend amongst the underground. Now with four full lengths available and a handful of EPs and splits, they have become an in-demand name worldwide with ten years of European tours along with treks across the North and South American continents (South America resulting in their latest release, Historical Graffiti). Festival appearances include Hellfest (FR), Azkena Fest (SP), Reverence Fest (SP) Desertfest London, Desertfest Berlin, Up in Smoke (DL), Psycho Las Vegas, and various others across Europe. The recent documentaries Lo Sound Desert and Desert Age give light on Yawning Man’s influential impact on underground rock music

“This is a band that makes you envision a multitude of colors when listening to their albums and the effect carries over to their live experiences as well. The raucous reaction they received from their performance left the audience dumbfounded and in disbelief upon the final chord sweep, we can only hope more comes from this group with future activity. ” (New Noise Magazine)

“Yawning Man has always been an “in the know” band for the heavy rock underground, far more influential globally than commercially successful.” (The Obelisk)

“One of the most impressive facets of Yawning Man is the absence of a singer and an instrumental jam band would need to be dynamic enough o fill that void, Yawning Man does it well.” (Metalwani)

Mars Red Sky

“When that hella chugga bass driven ear pumping metal comes along twenty five seconds into it you know you’re in for something special.” -
NEW NOIZE magazine 2015

Driven by the huge success of their eponymous debut record, which was recorded in Spain’s mystic Bardenas desert and released in 2011
the Bordelais were quickly invited to play on the largest European stages with Kyuss Lives!, Dinosaur Jr, Sleep, and renowned festivals such as Eurockéennes de Belfort (Fr) Hellfest (Fr), Roadburn (NL), London and Berlin Desertfests, Sziget Festival (Hun), SXSW (USA) and many more , leading them to play 300 shows in the next 5 years, opening for various acts such as SLEEP, French major band DETROIT, DINOSAUR JR or KILLING JOKE.

Bordeaux - France ’s MARS RED SKY ’s second album ‘Stranded in Arcadia’ described a journey in a sapphire vessel to an imaginary place called ‘Arcadia’. Masters in cultivating fuzzy, distorted massive sounding heaviness contrasted with ethereal high range melodic vocals, MARS RED SKY have become much of an intriguing curiosity over the recent years as Classic Rock (UK) illustrated as “Between doom rock and sky - scraping 70s psyche pop, with utter abandon (….) A record that will put hair on your feet !” .

Worldwide press has been roaring usually pointing out the band’s “Charisma and consistency in quality song writing and execution” as in THE SLEEPING SHAMAN webzine described. Also as THE OBELISK passionately wrote “One of the best and most distinct acts in or out of heavy psychedelia ” or as ABOUT.COM confirmed : “A fantastic voyage!”.

MARS RED SKY’s brand new album ‘Apex III – Praise for the Burning Soul’ pushes boundaries further into a colossal heavy sound - Produced by Gabriel Zander (from Brasil who also engineered ‘Stranded in Arcadia’) and Jacob Dennis in Studio Cryogene in Bègles in France - The band has forged grandiose and hypnotizing thickly produced songs rooted through a wider range of musical influences stretching from Robert Wyatt, The Beatles, Nick Drake, Neil young to bands like Electric Wizard, Acid King and obviously Black Sabbath.

The album lyrical content deals with various themes : opener ‘the Whinery’ depicts the cynism of the manipulating Kings and Queens in this absurd and chaotic world . Title track ‘Apex III’ tells about the band leaving the planet to other galaxies on board of their sapphire vessel, leaving the world in dismay while fighting against their own inner demons. Heavily permeated by a thriller written by Jon Conelly : 'The Burning Soul’ during the recording sessions , or Claire North 'The first fifteen lives of Harry August’ : each time Harry August dies, he is reborn in exactly the same time and exactly the same place, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has lived a dozen times before.

MARS RED SKY is a fully accomplished artist who welcomes every listener to their unique world.
