Heavy Psych Sounds Records&Booking is really proud to announce the new album from Wedge!
LTD GREEN TRANSPARENT SPLATTER MULTICOLOUR VINYL
DIGIPAK / DIGITAL
Following the buzz of WEDGE's debut, the group now unveils their eagerly awaited follow-up "Killing Tongue" ...and it truly kills! Although also deeply rooted in the rock'n'roll of the late 60s & early 70s, this album clearly is a strong progression from its precursor, presenting a multicolored spectrum of sounds and more diverse songwriting. Power trio-untypical arrangements and instruments like electric sitar, clavinet and harpsichord among others are accompanying especially some of the new psychedelia soaked tunes. But of course you can expect plenty of good old fuzz guitar and Hammond organ driven material as well.
Killing Tongue was recorded & mixed at LowSwing Studios in Berlin by Guy Sternberg and mastered by Brian Lucey at Magic Garden Mastering in California/USA.
For fans of: Led Zeppelin, Wolfmother, Deep Purple, The Raconteurs, Humble Pie, The Black Crowes, Black Sabbath
Since the release of their long sold out debut, WEDGE are definitely an integral part of the European Rock scene. Over a short time the group managed to establish a steadily growing fan base by playing nearly up to 200 shows since 2014 in numerous countries such as Spain, Italy, Portugal, France, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, England, Greece, Israel and of course Germany. This includes famous festivals such as Bukta Open Air, Desert Fest, Stoned from the Underground, etc., and support gigs for bands such as Fu Manchu (US), Blues Pills (SE), Orchid (US), The Flying Eyes (US), Lucifer (UK), Pontiac (US), Simo (US), to name but a few.
WEDGE was born into the spotlight in 2014. The trio was founded in Berlin by guitarist/singer Kiryk Drewinski (ex-Liquid Visions & ex-The Magnificent Brotherhood), drummer Holger “The Holg” Grosser & bassist/organist Dave Götz and named itself after the first stone tool of human history. Their sound is accordingly archaic, extremely effective, "made from solid rock" and, when used correctly, causes fire ... especially live! WEDGE blends mainly elements of classic rock, 60s garage and some Psychedelic with a proper dose of joy while playing.
Even before the band decided on a name, their first studio album was recorded (originally planned to be a demo) and released on the Italian label "Heavy Psych Sounds" in September 2014. The LP was already sold out after a short time and was very popular among the dancers, as well as the writers. Thus, the three multi-instrumentalists are frequently credited with refreshingly catchy song writing, which outshines their peers of similar genre. This also gave WEDGE some radio airplay early on. One of the group's greatest strengths, however, is experienced live.
Just recently the band recorded their new studio album "Killing Tongue".
