Additional POWERED WIG MACHINE news announcements will follow in the coming weeks, as the band begins to record their third LP.
Now in their eighth year as a band, POWERED WIG MACHINE's ever-evolving, entertaining brew of fuzzed-out, southern fried blues-boogie and righteous jams merging classic rock/blues influences with that of top-tier modern rock acts, the Tombstone, Arizona-based "Tombstoners" have issued several recorded works since inception, including their 2009 debut full-length, Bearded Goddess. In March of 2014 the band delivered the fantastic jams of their sophomore album, Supa-Collider, their dexterous diversity and empowering tactics shining brighter than the blazing sun which ignites their desert surroundings on the album, putting the listener on cruise control into the furthest reaches of the planet and beyond, the tunes infiltrated with a slight flux of sci-fi otherworldliness. Self-recorded by the band and mixed by Brian Gold at Primrose Studio in Sierra Vista, mastered by Chris Goosman at Baseline Audio, the artwork was crafted by Joseph Rudell and Rudy Flores. Fans of Clutch, Deep Purple, Fu Manchu, Thin Lizzy, Queens Of The Stone Age and Fu Manchu, tune in.
